Hi Everyone! It’s Jennifer Z from Town and Country Living with a fun planting project. With spring in the air I’m itching to get my fingers in the dirt. Since it’s still too early to dig outside, I’m working on a few indoor planting projects. I like to find unique pots and planters for houseplants and flowers, and today I’m sharing how to make planters from plain old cigar boxes.
There are so many uses for them!
You can find cigar boxes at flea markets and thrift stores, but they’re likely to charge you too much money for them. I purchase mine at Binny’s Beverage Depot for $1.50 each. I’ve seen them at the flea market for as much as $10.
I used pansies and then added moss to hide the dirt.
I created a second planter using succulents.
This time, I filled the cigar box with sand. Since succulents don’t need much watering, I didn’t bother to line the box with parchment paper. You can keep the sand as is, or add something more decorative, like moss.
You can add other decorative elements like small seashells.
