Gardening is about experimenting and having fun. Not just in the types of plants you grow, but also how you display those plants. Here are a few playful alternatives to regular flower vases. They’ll spark conversation and give a fresh new look to any part of your home or office.
1. Tin can
Clean it, remove the label and what are you left with? An artistic little container to display your flowers.
Due to their size, tin cans are perfect for plants with shorter stems. They’re also highly customizable. You can cover them with wrapping paper, spray paint them, or tie some ribbons around them.
2. Watering can
Who doesn’t like a bit of bohemian flair in their home? Watering cans have a timeless, rustic feel to them. It’s unusual to see watering cans displaying plants. If you choose this option, your arrangement will definitely stand out. Another great thing about them is that they look stylish indoors and out.
3. Perfume bottle
Don't throw away your empty perfume bottle just yet! It can be reused as a cute little plant holder. The same is true for any other small glass bottle you may have. Give it a good clean before using it, then pop a couple of short stemmed flowers inside with a little bit of water.
Flowers in bottles also make great eco-friendly gifts that show a personal touch.
4. Drinking glass
If you're looking for a way to display your favorite flowers in the dining room, consider using drinking glasses as vases. Drinking glasses are not only easy to find and cheap, but they also come in a variety of shapes and sizes. To create a fuller look, cut the stems as short as possible so the flowers fill the glass.
Teapots make great planters. They're decorative, easy to find, relatively cheap and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Using a teapot rather than a regular vase is a fun way to show off your creativity and add some personality to your table.
