1)      Useless car or bicycle tires

Car tires that have been subtly punctured and cannot be used anymore with your car? Don’t worry, this will go perfectly fine in your garden. We use strong tapes like duct tapes etc. You can then turn this into fancy planters by fixing a strong reliable base and adding soil in the space between. They can grow grass or other plants that don’t grow very tall in length.

If you are shifting or replacing your old furniture with new, don’t throw away small drawers and cabinets, cupboard doors etc. which may be useful in your garden décor.  This paint the doors which will make it awesome.

Small drawers can be used as hanging baskets for long trailing vines or just as simple planters in your garden. Fill them with soil for a picturesque look of your garden.

3)      Light bulbs

You may have a ton of light bulbs lying around just uselessly in some of your old storage drawers. Hey, why not upcycle them into fascinating and unique planters for the garden? Remove the filament part of the bulb from below and add soil or water inside. Place your place inside and hang them on walls.

4)      Paint cans

Do you have old paint cans? These tin cans are the perfect aesthetic for a garden! Wash them up and use them as planters in your garden.  You can do the same with tea tins.

5)      Toy trucks, it is time to use those toy trucks into fancy planters. The back of the truck can easily be filled with soil and few roots can be planted. This will give a very aesthetic look to your garden .
