Whether it is to recycle old objects, limit waste or create a truly personal decoration, we all have a good reason to plant our plants in something other than pots and planters! With a little imagination and a minimum of tinkering, these recycled objects highlight the most insignificant plants. No pot? So much the better!
The second life of old tableware
Do you have a granny tureen, gravy boat or teapot that collects dust? If these pieces of old dishes are no longer adapted to our lifestyles, they easily transform into ultra-romantic decorative accessories! Do not forget to have a layer of draining clay balls at the bottom before planting, and above all do not water too much ... Found on Pinterest
An old colander in suspension!
Vintage colanders are ideal for planting beautiful compositions of green or flowering plants. Their small holes let the water pass while retaining the earth, who says better? On the sides, the handles allow you to easily attach a cord to hang this beautiful hanging plant pot!

How to recycle a slightly damaged old book that we will never read again? By transforming it into a flowerpot! Just cut a hole in the center of the pages (and cover depending on the desired effect), then line it with a piece of transparent plastic.

Sea urchin shells think they're jellyfish
Do you know the tillandsias? These aerial plants, which we call "daughters of the air", absorb the ambient humidity to live. As they need neither water nor soil, they lend themselves to the play of poetic and original compositions. Attached to sea urchin shells, they transform into vegetable jellyfish tentacles… Poetic, right? Source: PetitBeast
