Hello Hometalkers! I’m back with another round-up of inspiring projects, and this week’s theme is repurposed planters. Reusing old, or even broken, objects as new homes for our plants not only helps the environment by reducing waste, but helps add character to the garden. And, as evidenced by the myriad examples on Hometalk, there is no limit to what you can make into a planter!
