Updated: Apr 8, 2020

Estimate time: 60-90 minutes

We can all reduce our footprint and decorate our homes and yards with these beautiful, colourful and unique recycled planter ideas.

Tin Can Recycled Planters

Get your colourful paints out and go crazy! Spring is around the corner, and this family is already planning their garden. We’ve always been curious on how to decorate our blah fence and this gave us all sorts of fun ideas!

Pokémon Recycled Pop Bottle Planters

Your little Pokémon lovers will be all over this craft! If you are super creative, choose a different character and try and make your child’s favourite character come to life.

Plastic Pop Bottle Self Watering Planters

Let’s learn a little bit of physics and science from this craft. Teach children about how plants are living things and how they absorb the water only when they need it. Not to mention that this alleviates a little bit of pressure

Recycled Hanging Pop Bottle Planters

Use beautiful colours to decorate these bottles, and hang them in a well lit window. Start your plants from seed and watch them grow. If you are in a warm climate, place them outdoors now.

Upcycled Fabric Twin Planter

Decorate old planters and give them new life! This is all part of teaching our children about reducing waste and repurposing. While crafting, take the opportunity to teach them about landfill and waste reduction. Tell them how giving this planter new life is one step towards helping our planet!

Happy Creating! Don’t forget, everything you do with your children is an opportunity to teach something, whether it be about helping our planet or learning about science or the alphabet.
