Super Easy Do It Yourself (DIY) Designer Planters
Today I am going to share with you how I made these beautiful and tall do it yourself (diy) designer planters on a small budget. I wanted to have tall planters in front of my front door. However, they, unfortunately, were very expensive. Even on sale, they were at least $100/planter. On the other hand, as you all know by now, I am a little thrifty with things. I want to save money whenever I can, and I also like to think outside the box. So, here is how I handled that dilemma of my life at the time.
Shop Around First
Before you begin with any project, you should shop around first just to make sure you can find something less expensive than the budget you have for your do it yourself (DIY) project. You always want to weigh your project to see if it is worth spending your time and money on. Moreover, it gives you an idea to compare. I do that quite often, and mostly I end up going with my do it yourself (DIY) projects, however at least it’s worth trying.
Certainly, I did the same thing for this project. After shopping around online and stores in town, I finally decided to go to Home Depot. There I spent 15 minutes looking at different planters. Therefore, I figured out a way to make my own “beautiful tall do it yourself designer planters” for really, really an inexpensive price.
So, shall we see how I did my first DIY project in our new home? Honestly, it’s very, very easy. Here’s the supply list:

Step By Step Process For Do It Yourself (DIY) Tall Planters
Very first Thing I did was placing the small pot upside down where I wanted to set my planter. In this case, right in front of my entry door on the side. See? Pretty darn easy! But on the other hand pretty clever though.
Okay guys, let me show you the most difficult part….did I say that? Oops, I meant to say the easiest step is the second step where you just place your larger planter on the top of the first (upside down) planter.
Are you still with me so far? Hang in there as I am going to make your do it yourself life pretty easy. Oh, wait for a second, this is already the easiest project someone could handle, so if you can’t handle that then I don’t know what to tell you. Well, certainly I know that you have a good sense of humor and yes humor is very important in life.
In addition to the planters, I also purchased these pretty mums from Costco. All I did was place them in the larger planter. But unfortunately, they were smaller. No..I didn’t start crying or freak out. rather, I figured out the way to deal with this. I placed some of my containers underneath of them in the larger planter. And don’t tell my mother where those containers are as she has said to me more than 100 times that she can’t find them. Yes, I am a little sneaky!
By the way, containers were really helpful and provided me with the desired height.
I am pretty proud of my self, and I love the way they turned out. I think they look really cute!
