Do you have pots? Used or unused, old or new? If yes then these 15 DIY Garden Pots Decoration Ideas are made for you. Most of these ideas will sway your mind in wonder, I swear.
1. Mosaic Pot
Mosaic art is popular, so why not implement it to make an exquisite mosaic pot. You’ll need a terracotta pot, vase filler chips (easily available everywhere), alternatively use pot shard or broken tile pieces. You’ll also need glue and spray paint.
The first step is to paint the pot in your favorite color and leave it to dry. In the second step, lie the pot and glue chips or shards one by one. After this paste the chips on other sides as well.
2. DIY Laced Pot
Laced pot looks stunning. Keep it indoors, on a terrace or balcony or spruce up your patio. This Diy idea is very easy to do: Choose lace color and pattern according to the color of background you’re keeping it, take a pot and varnish it with transparent adhesive and paste the lace neatly over it. Now leave your laced pot for a while until it will dry out completely.
If you want to place it indoors use colors like white, cream or other light colors. But If you’re about to keep it outside, care about the dust. Choose lace color that will not get dirty easily.
3. Barked Pot
Every single idea given here is worth a try and these two are most irresistible. a. Find some twigs and cut them from pruning shears as depicted in the picture. Now take a pot (whatever you’ve), paint it with strong adhesive and stick all the twigs you’ve cut, on it carefully.
b. Collect small wood chips and barks, cover a bit of glue on each piece and paste them one by one a new pot. Your unique pot is ready for use.
4. Twig Pot
Read more DIY Twig Ideas. Twigs are really useful wood pieces and you can also use to design so many things. Find twigs of equal sizes and arrange them in order so that you can tie them in single file. Use *jute twine to tie them up as it looks natural. Now take a pot or small container and wrap it with flax string fabric. In the last step take tied twigs and glue them on the wrapped pot.
5. Recycled Cans
This is a smart Eco-friendly solution to recycle used cans. Instead of throwing them away, make colorful containers out of them, you can grow plants with shallow roots, low care annuals and herbs in them.
Use acrylic paint to paint old cans, do experiments and use unique colors, make designs. There are a lot of things you can do to make a beautiful pot from a can.
6. Moss Covered Pot
Believe me! It is one of the most pricey idea I have listed here. Make this antique moss pot and you’ll be amazed how terrific it looks. You’ll need a handful of moss, a clay pot, brush and one cup buttermilk. Now here’s how to do it– put the moss in a blender, mix one cup of buttermilk and water and blend it until you see a milkshake like texture. Paint this mixture on your pot and leave it. Do not let the pot dry out, spray finely a few drops of water as the moss loves moisture, within two days you’ll see the moss growing. You can grow a moisture loving plant in this pot, this way you’ll water it everyday and the moss will get the enough moisture also.
7. Roped Pot
Did you ever thought that a diy could be that easy too? this roped pot looks awesome, a flower pot you can make by just wrapping up a rope. Take a bottle, glass, jar or a pot (*don’t use clay pot), whatever is available, paint up the glue all over it. Now take a thick shiny rope, wrap it around the pot. Your flower pot is ready.
8. Concrete planter
Make molded concrete planters using cement. You can make it of any size and shape depending on the type of container you’re using as a mold to make it. This type of planters is really long lasting and cheap. You can read the complete tutorial here.
9. Fabric Pot
You’ll need to spend a lot of money to buy a fabric pot. Good news is you can make it at home– buy a terracotta pot and fabric. Glue the fabric all around the pot. You can learn this step by step in this article. Avoid placing fabric pots outside as the soaking in the rain may wash all the glue you’d used.
10. Painted Pots
This is little tricky, painted differently than you think. Take a bucket filled with water, spill the drops of acrylic paint (two – three colors) in it, you’ll see the stream of paint will start to float on water. Pick a pot and gently insert it on the surface and slowly turn the pot all around so that the paint will stick to the pot. This will make interesting patterns over the pot.
11. Dotted Pot
This beautiful three tier planter is simple and easy to make. Take three pots to put one above each other, the last one should be bigger and the first one should be smaller.
Wash pots thoroughly and paint them with spray paint. Let them dry, then make polka dots using circle foam. Your three tier pot is ready, place the painted pot on one above each other.
12. Painted Clay Pot with Message
This astonishing idea is adorable. Make a message flower pot– take a clay pot (any size), clean it and paint it with white spray paint and leave the pot for an hour or two. Now use a chalkboard paint to make a small message board on the pot wherever you like. Write up a word or two using chalk or liquid chalk marker. Write an additional message using a permanent marker over the white part of your pot.
You can gift this pot to your loved ones.
13. Milk Carton Pot
Make a pot of milk carton, one more recycling idea. Take a milk carton, wet it with glue and wrap linen all over it. Too simple.
14. Two Simple Ideas

The second idea is a vase with a balloon and glass. Balloon applied on the glass, it gives a surprising result. You can keep cut flowers in this vase.
15. Make Unique Pots
