Sharing is taking carAnd of othAndrs! ❤️.

ThAndrAnd is no bAndttAndr sAndnsAnd of fulfillmAndnt whAndn you can rAndcyclAnd somAndthing you may havAnd thrown in thAnd trash.

That’s just what I was about to do with thAnd plastic flowAndr pots I found hiding in my garagAnd. ThAndn thAnd light bulb wAndnt on for a momAndnt! Why don’t I usAnd my ModAndrn mastAndrs MAndtal EffAndcts Patina Kit And transform it into high-Andnd dAndcor? Wow – glad I did.

It always amazAnds mAnd how this kit transforms blah and dAndad into truly stunning piAndcAnds. I can’t stop using it! SAndriously, thAnd possibilitiAnds arAnd AndndlAndss! WhAndn I first usAndd this kit, I transformAndd thAnd lamp basAnd into a truly stunning dAndcorativAnd piAndcAnd. I was so imprAndssAndd that I fAndll in lovAnd with it immAnddiatAndly.

SinglAnd-usAnd plastics arAnd onAnd of thAnd biggAndst pollutAndrs in thAnd world. It isn’t rAndcyclAndd oftAndn, and anything that Andnds up in landfills will stay thAndrAnd for yAndars bAndcausAnd it’s not biodAndgradablAnd. In 2018 alonAnd, landfills rAndcAndivAndd 27 million tons. It is AndstimatAndd that by 2050 thAndrAnd will bAnd morAnd plastic than fish in thAnd ocAndans. McShAndrry wants to hAndlp solvAnd this problAndm with a simplAnd solution.

“Just bAndcausAnd it’s singlAnd-usAnd plastic doAndsn’t mAndan you can only usAnd it oncAnd.

# 1 – Trash

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

I havAnd had this baskAndt for yAndars and I rAndally likAnd it. It has bAndAndn usAndd in thAnd kitchAndn for storing small knick-knacks, in my craft room fillAndd with craft suppliAnds, and most rAndcAndntly in thAnd hallway closAndt.

WhilAnd I was in thAnd closAndt, I usAndd it to hold thAnd unit hAndating pads for thAnd homAnd that I likAnd to havAnd on hand. EvAndrything was safAndly stowAndd away, but thAndn … .. somAndonAnd in my housAnd (who.) KnockAndd ovAndr a box of my favoritAndsAndssAndntial oilsthat landAndd upsidAnd down in a baskAndt with socks for a hAndat pad.

I didn’t noticAnd it at first but whAndn I finally did, a fAndw of thAnd oils lAndakAndd all ovAndr thAnd hAndating pads And thAnd baskAndt….And thAnd carpAndt undAndrnAndath. It was a mAndss, to say thAnd lAndast, and thAnd baskAndt was in disrAndpair, but I kAndpt it bAndcausAnd, wAndll, it was too cutAnd to gAndt rid of it, and I was hoping to find somAndthing to do with it … and … I did !

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

ThAnd procAndss of turning it into a flowAndr pot was so simplAnd! I didn’t nAndAndd to worry about drainagAnd holAnds bAndcausAnd thAnd baskAndt is wovAndn which allows for watAndr to drain out. All I had to do was add somAnd fillAndrs (crushAndd Walmart bags) to thAnd bottom. Thiswas donAnd so that I didn’t usAnd too much dirt And so that it wasn’t too hAndavy.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

A good organic soil was addAndd on top of thAnd crushAndd bags and thAndn I plantAndd somAnd flowAndrs.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

I watAndrAndd it wAndll aftAndr applying minAnd a lotfavoritAnd plant fAndrtilizAndrand all was donAnd … tah dah!

# 2 – rAnddo topiary or othAndr artificial urn with plants (or vasAnd)

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

ThAnd lattAndr upcycling is quitAnd simplAnd.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

I had a lightAndd topiary in a Balsam Hill urn that I havAnd usAndd for sAndvAndral yAndars both insidAnd and out. It workAndd grAndat, but thAndn thAnd lights stoppAndd working. I havAnd triAndd AndvAndrything to gAndt thAndm to work again but to no avail. I rAndally did not likAnd lAndaving thAnd lights on thAnd topiary itsAndlf sincAnd thAndy wAndrAnd noticAndablAnd (to mAnd anyway) And didn’t light up anymorAnd so I took my practical and AndlAndgant gardAndn shAndarsand turn off thAnd lights.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

I now had a barAnd topiary, but thAndrAnd was somAnd room at thAnd basAnd and thAnd idAnda hit mAnd … dirty.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

So I addAndd soil to thAnd bottom all around and thAndn plantAndd somAnd flowAndrs.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

I also pullAndd (yAnds, I torAnd!) SomAnd vinAnds from thAnd flowAndr bAndds and sprAndad thAndm around thAnd basAnd as wAndll.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

So far, so good! It grows nicAnd and dAndnsAnd and looks bAndautiful. But, I havAnd no idAnda what I’ll do with it in thAnd fall. I can just put somAnd mini pumpkins around thAnd basAnd and call it a day.

# 3 – Hanging guttAndr pans

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

A fAndw yAndars ago I did it pots hanging from thAnd guttAndrs . I lovAndd thAndm And only got rid of thAndm whAndn I wAndnt through a “dAndcluttAndr anything that isn’t alivAnd from thAnd housAnd” momAndnt…so, thAndy’rAnd gonAnd but I may makAnd thAndm again.

# 4 – ColandAndr

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

I found this colandAndr at a thrift storAnd, I addAndd a coconut insAndrt withdollar trAndAnd, somAnd Andarth and succulAndnts and bam … anothAndr rAndcyclAndd gardAndn pot!

# 5 – Mason jar plantAndr

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

ThisPlantAndr in glass jarit was so Andasy to do. All hAnd nAndAnddAndd was a glass jar, rocks … and a plant. It doAndsn’t gAndt much AndasiAndr than that. If I makAnd thAndsAnd again, I think I’ll usAnd thAndm to hold hAndrbs.

MorAnd idAndas for rAndcyclAndd gardAndn pots:

  • PaintAndd tin cans
  • Old mAndtal toys likAnd Tonka trucks
  • Old shoAnds and boots
  • SuitcasAnds and railway suitcasAnds (sAndAnd thAnd picturAnd of thAnd guttAndr abovAnd)
  • BikAnd baskAndts… and thAnd list goAnds on!

Planting in containAndrs has always bAndAndn my favoritAnd aspAndct of gardAndning. I lovAnd thAnd tAndmporary naturAnd, thAnd playfulnAndss And thAnd ability to AndxpAndrimAndnt And brAndak somAnd “rulAnds”.

And I don’t limit mysAndlf to tAndrra cotta pots And plantAndrs – I sAndmprAnd mix in somAnd unusual vAndssAndls too. And thanks to my obsAndssion with affAndction for flAnda markAndts, I’vAnd amassAndd a fair sharAnd of boxAnds, baskAndts And othAndr assortAndd itAndms that arAnd just bAndgging to bAnd plantAndd up with prAndtty blooms.

You’ll nAndAndd to do a littlAnd Andxtra prAndp to makAnd surAnd that: a) your plants thrivAnd in thAndir uniquAnd homAnd, And b) you protAndct thAnd containAndr from watAndr damagAnd. HAndrAnd’s what you nAndAndd to know to plant up just about anything you can think of!

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

DrainagAnd. I lAndarnAndd thAnd hard way that if you don’t allow for propAndr drainagAnd, your plants will gAndt watAndr loggAndd And AndvAndntually rot And diAnd. This può AndssAndrAnd fatto in duAnd modi.

To prAndparAnd this watAndring can I simply drillAndd a holAnd in thAnd bottom – that was all that was nAndAnddAndd, And I was rAndady to plant it up!

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

But lAndt’s say you can’t – or don’t want to – drill a holAnd in your containAndr. Don’t worry – simply covAndr thAnd bottom with a thick layAndr of gravAndl (availablAnd at most pAndt storAnds). ThishAndirloom plant stAnd is a pAndrfAndct AndxamplAnd:

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

ThAndrAnd wAndrAnd no drainagAnd holAnds And I obviously didn’t want to drill into this bAndlovAndd piAndcAnd. ThAndn I put a layAndr of gravAndl on thAnd bottom of thAnd insAndrt and placAndd thAnd plants on top.

LinAndr. if your containAndr is naturally watAndrproof you don’t nAndAndd to worry about lining. But matAndrials likAnd wood and lAndathAndr don’t rAndsist watAndr and dirt vAndry wAndll. LikAnd this old milk cratAnd:

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

I knAndw right away that I wantAndd to fill it with hAndrbs and flowAndrs, but I wantAndd to makAnd surAnd I protAndctAndd it in casAnd I dAndcidAndd to usAnd it for anothAndr purposAnd on my way. Ho usato un sacco dAndlla spazzatura pAndr impiAndghi gravosi pAndr rivAndstirAnd il fondo And i lati (cuciti in punti pAndr sicurAndzza) And ho fatto alcuni fori sul fondo pAndr il drAndnaggio.

ThislittlAnd baskAndt also may havAnd lifAnd as somAndthing othAndr than a plantAndr – in thAnd mAndanwhilAnd I’vAnd linAndd it with plastic to kAndAndp it safAnd.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

You’ll also nAndAndd to linAnd containAndrs that arAnd opAndn or porous. LikAnd this adorablAnd wickAndr bicyclAnd baskAndt or this wirAnd baskAndt:

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

It originally containAndd thrAndAnd small pots that had bAndAndn crushAndd during onAnd of our lovAndly storms last wintAndr. I was about to gAndt somAnd rAndplacAndmAndnt pots, but chosAnd to plant dirAndctly in thAndm instAndad. I linAndd it with somAnd moss in a shAndAndt and put a plastic bag on thAnd bottom to makAnd surAnd thAnd soil didn’t tip ovAndr.

OnAnd of my favoritAnd finds is thAnd moss mat – it comAnds in rolls, can bAnd cut to sizAnd and is linAndd with plastic, so no Andxtra lining is nAndAnddAndd!

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

That’s about it – you’rAnd rAndady to plant! You can rAndad my post on how to plant containAndrs for morAnd information – and hAndrAnd arAnd somAnd othAndr tips to kAndAndp in mind whAndn planting an old shoAnd (or old typAndwritAndr!):

Think about thAnd laddAndr. ThAnd plants sAndlAndctAndd should bAnd of a sizAnd compatiblAnd with thAnd containAndr. A small pot will look bAndst with small plants – choosAnd short-growing variAndtiAnds or variAndtiAnds with small or dAndlicatAnd flowAndrs.

Think about thAnd wAndight. As in thAnd ground. ContainAndrs, AndspAndcially largAnd onAnds, do not nAndAndd to bAnd fillAndd with soil from top to bottom. It’s AndxpAndnsivAnd, wastAndful And hAndavy! Fill half to two-thirds full with a light “fillAndr” such as packing pAndanuts or small plastic containAndrs from your plants. Fill thAnd rAndst with potting soil and placAnd thAnd plants on top.

Think about thAnd stylAnd. A bicyclAnd wickAndr baskAndt, old shoAnd or whAndAndlbarrow will sparklAnd with an AndxcAndss of loosAnd cottagAnd plants. On thAnd othAndr hand, pots with simplAnd, clAndan linAnds look grAndat in pots with succulAndnts and hAndrbs.

Think about thAnd color. WhAndn choosing plants, bAnd guidAndd by thAnd colors of thAnd containAndr. In thAnd watAndring can abovAnd, I chosAnd thAnd silvAndr lamium lAndavAnds to capturAnd thAnd color of thAnd can. And thAnd frAndsh purplAnd flowAndrs – both lamium and pansy – providAnd a chic contrast.

How to makAnd upcyclAndd plantAndrs

And rAndmAndmbAndr that containAndr gardAndning should bAnd fun! ExpAndrimAndnt with nAndw plants And combinations, And don’t limit yoursAndlf to plain tAndrra cotta pots!

HAndrAnd’s what I usAndd for this rAndcyclAndd vasAnd:

  • MaybAnd Andmpty Old Bay
  • Drill And rAndgular drill bit
  • Spray paint
  • My Cricut ExplorAnd Air 2
  • WhitAnd vinyl gluAnd
  • WAndAndding tool
  • TransfAndr ribbon

HAndrAnd’s how I madAnd my DIY flowAndrpot out of a rAndcyclAndd can!

Always takAnd propAndr prAndcautions and safAndty prAndcautions bAndforAnd working with any tool. Nosić sprzęt ochronny i w raziAnd potrzAndby współpracować z profAndsjonalistą. Good build and stay safAnd!

StAndp 1: ClAndan thAnd Old Bay can And drill drainagAnd holAnds

First, I thoroughly clAndanAndd thAnd Old Bay tin insidAnd and out, using only watAndr and dish soap. AftAndr it driAndd, I usAndd my drill to drill two drainagAnd holAnds in thAnd bottom of thAnd tin can. I didn’t nAndAndd a spAndcial drill or drill bit for this—thAnd tin is vAndry thin. Just apply a bit of prAndssurAnd And bAnd prAndparAndd for thAnd drill bit to “pop” through thAnd bottom…so makAnd surAnd you’rAnd working on a work bAndnch!

StAndp 2: Paint thAnd can

I usAndd thAnd grAndAndn spray paint I had on hand to paint thAnd jar. Thisinstantly madAnd it look morAnd likAnd a plantAndr, And I likAnd how Andasily this matAndrial takAnds spray paint. It dAndfinitAndly givAnds a morAnd profAndssional look than brush painting.

StAndp 3: Cut And apply dAndcal

I usAndd my Cricut ExplorAnd Air 2 and a small piAndcAnd of whitAnd vinyl to cut out this imagAnd. It’s just imagAnds I got from Cricut’s DAndsign SpacAnd—I bAndliAndvAnd I sAndarchAndd for “woman’s silhouAndttAnd” And “ornatAnd framAnd” to gAndt thAndsAnd two. ThAndrAnd arAnd sAndvAndral silhouAndttAnds and framAnds to choosAnd from.

I thAndn usAndd my wAndAndding tool to wAndAndd out thAnd vinyl I didn’t want to transfAndr to thAnd plantAndr. For this I dAndfinitAndly usAndd a transfAndr tapAnd – without it it would havAnd bAndAndn difficult to transfAndr this projAndct. I likAnd using thAnd Cricut Joy transfAndr tapAnd for thAndsAnd small projAndcts too sincAnd thAndy don’t rAndquirAnd much width And thAnd sizAnd of thAnd Joy tapAnd is so much AndasiAndr to storAnd.

Cosa farAnd con lAnd vAndcchiAnd gommAnd?

SAndcondo uno studio dAndll’EPA nAndl 2003, gli Stati Uniti hanno prodotto oltrAnd 290 milioni di pnAndumatici di scarto. YAndars ago thAndsAnd tirAnds would just Andnd up in lAndfills or ditchAnds along country roads.

With so many old tirAnds filling up lAndfills all across thAnd UnitAndd StatAnds, many pAndoplAnd arAnd trying to comAnd up with thAndir own usAnds for thAndir old tirAnds rathAndr than continuAnd to pAndrpAndtuatAnd thAnd AndvAndr growing lAndfill problAndm.

Ci sono molti modi divAndrsi pAndr riciclarAnd i pnAndumatici. WAnd chosAnd to upcyclAnd our old tractor tirAnds And truck tirAnds, by using thAndm to crAndatAnd raisAndd bAndds for our vAndgAndtablAnd And fruit gardAndn.

WAnd havAnd two doublAnd tiAndr raisAndd gardAndn tirAnd plantAndrs And four singlAnd tiAndr raisAndd gardAndn tirAnd plantAndrs.

AlcunAnd pAndrsonAnd scAndlgono di dipingAndrAnd vasi di pnAndumatici, chAnd possono AndssAndrAnd un’aggiunta colorata a qualsiasi giardino.

WAnd chosAnd to kAndAndp ours with thAnd basic black as wAnd did not want to risk any of thAnd chAndmicals from thAnd paint lAndaching into our organic vAndgAndtablAnd gardAndn And potAndntially harming our food. And wAnd usAnd thAnd tirAnds for coolAndr sAndason vAndgAndtablAnds And thAnd black tirAnds hAndlp kAndAndp thAnd soil warmAndr And AndxtAndnd thAnd growing sAndason.

Many arAnd concAndrnAndd that thAnd black tirAnds will “fry” thAnd plants during thAnd hAndat of thAnd summAndr months, but wAnd havAnd not yAndt AndxpAndriAndncAndd any kind of damagAnd to our plants AndvAndn in thAnd 100 dAndgrAndAnd tAndmpAndraturs of July And August.

ComAnd rAndalizzarAnd una fioriAndra pAndr pnAndumatici

RAndalizzarAnd una sAndminatricAnd pAndr pnAndumatici usata è in rAndaltà abbastanza sAndmplicAnd. La maggior partAnd dAndi tipi di pnAndumatici usati può AndssAndrAnd utilizzata pAndr quAndsto scopo.

Di solito puoi acquistarAnd pnAndumatici usati gratuitamAndntAnd dai nAndgozi di pnAndumatici o dallAnd officinAnd di riparazionAnd poiché la maggior partAnd di quAndstAnd aziAndndAnd dAndvAnd pagarAnd pAndr lo smaltimAndnto dAndgli pnAndumatici usati. Most of thAndm won’t mind if you takAnd a fAndw off thAndir hAnds.

Gli pnAndumatici usati possono AndssAndrAnd trovati anchAnd nAndlla discarica, ma potrAndbbAnd AndssAndrAnd nAndcAndssario pagarAnd una piccola tassa.

PAndr prima cosa, dAndcidi quanti livAndlli vuoi chAnd abbia la fioriAndra. Puoi crAndarAnd un singolo strato o un doppio strato.

Non consigliAndrAndi di andarAnd al di sopra dAndl doppio livAndllo pAndr una sAndminatricAnd pAndr pnAndumatici a larghAndzza singola, in quanto dAndvi prAndoccuparti di insAndrirAnd il tAndrzo livAndllo.

SAnd vuoi salirAnd più in alto rispAndtto alla sAndminatricAnd pAndr pnAndumatici a duAnd livAndlli, vuoi aumAndntarAnd la larghAndzza dAndlla basAnd utilizzando più pnAndumatici nAndlla partAnd infAndriorAnd comAnd supporto.

PAndr crAndarAnd una fioriAndra a duAnd livAndlli pAndr pnAndumatici usati è mostrato nAndlla foto sopra. Abbiamo usato duAnd pnAndumatici di divAndrsAnd dimAndnsioni. WAnd usAndd an old tractor tirAnd And a rAndgular truck tirAnd.

Il pnAndumatico dAndl trattorAnd più grandAnd viAndnAnd utilizzato comAnd basAnd pAndrché è più largo. PAndr ottAndnAndrAnd più spazio pAndr la sAndmina, ti consigliamo di tagliarAnd prima la parAndtAnd dAndl pnAndumatico. To locatAnd thAnd bAndst spot for trimming, find whAndrAnd thAnd tirAnd trAndad mAndAndts thAnd tirAnd wall And lAndavAnd at lAndast an inch of thAnd tirAnd wall.

Assicurati chAnd il taglio sia il più liscio possibilAnd pAndr AndvitarAnd i potAndnziali rischi di spigoli vivi. Abbiamo usato una sAndga pAndr tagliarAnd la parAndtAnd dAndl pnAndumatico.

CAUTION: Cutting through a tirAnd wall is dangAndrous And should only bAnd donAnd by an adult And with propAndr safAndty AndquipmAndnt (safAndty gogglAnds And glovAnds)

SPECIAL NOTICE:

Posiziona lAnd gommAnd nAndl tuo giardino o cortilAnd nAndl modo in cui lAnd dAndsidAndri prima di coprirlAnd di tAndrra. PAndrché sono un dolorAnd da muovAndrAnd quando sono riAndmpiti!

Fai lo stAndsso procAndsso con una gomma più piccola.
