Creative Plant Pots with Urban Jungle Bloggers

This month the Urban Jungle Bloggers theme is creative plant pots. I love searching and finding new containers for my plants. Here are some I’ve made and purchased.

I belong to a bunco group at church that meets once a month. The host gets to choose the theme and buys the prizes. The ladies know they are going to get a plant related gift when they come to my house. I usually pick February as my hosting month (I love hearts) and I painted clay pots with hearts and planted them with cyclamen. I also made the plant jewelry on the left.

I don’t use my antique pots for plants, only for decoration. I did make an exception for this haworthia housed in a McCoy pot.

I’ve always collected owls and when I saw this orange planter at Hobby Lobby, I had to have it. I drilled a hole in it as I don’t like to use containers without holes. A pot without a hole is usually setting one up for failure.

I love owls!

I also have a soft spot in my heart for chickens and roosters. I found this vase at a garage sale for under $1. Who could resist? I drilled a hole in the bottom and now it holds a plant!

Recently I found Marna McGlinn Pottery made here in Michigan, at The Green Daffodil, a store in Ferndale. Isn’t it gorgeous?!

My Aunt Gloria just gifted me these gorgeous pieces of pottery for my tillandsias, as I was admiring hers. These are made by Susan Wright Ceramics, also based here in Michigan. They are perfect for the air plants!

But for most of my plants, green pots are the way I go.

What other color is there?

There are no rules at my house. If I like it, it works. Nothing matches and color is the key. You won’t find many white pots in my house, unless they are antique. Color makes me happy. Choose what you like for your plants and don’t forget to check thrift stores, garage sales, and antique stores. I found some great things at the local Salvation Army and you can see them here. Don’t limit yourself to one color or type of pot. Mix it up and have fun!
