Recycled Garden Container

Have you ever stopped in the middle of throwing out a used up container of coffee and said, "Do I need this for anything?"

The answer today is YES.

Used metal or plastic coffee containers are great for planting your flowers in!

Don't panic about the fact that it says Folgers all over it. You can use old coffee cans and other cans to make some really cute garden containers!

The great thing about making your own container is that you give it the exact color and style you are looking for.

I myself have gone shopping to try and find some cute flower pots to place on my porch. In my experience the colors were plain and the prices were high! 

Don't forget to check out the Mister Landscaper pintrest page for more great DIY garden ideas!

If you would like to share your flower pots with us, we would love to see them on our Mister Landscaper Facebook page.
