Wooden Box Planter
The thing about flower pot ideas is that you just need to be imaginative to get a good-looking flower pot. And that can mean reusing and repurposing things you already have. For example, turning an unused wood box into a planter box.

The planter here is ‘hidden’ by the lush flowers, being less visible than the other flower pot with flowers. This allows for the vibrant-colored flowers to stand out and become a focal point.

Halloween Flower Pot Ideas
The best flower pot ideas are those that allow you to be creative and imaginative. You might notice that many of our flower pot design examples don’t include terracotta.
That doesn’t mean you can’t make something interesting and attractive out of it. You can and this example here is proof of that.
Terracotta flower pots may be common. Terracotta flower pots with arts, on the other hand, are not. You can make very interesting flower pots using terracotta. You can paint them, glue and attach stuff on them, and so on. Want to make it personal? Try making simple arts on your terracotta flower pots.
This idea is a bit different. It is about placement instead of what items you turn into a flower pot with flowers. Look around your house.
Do you think there is enough space to make a garden of your own? If you don’t think there is any, think again. Look at those empty, unoccupied steps.
Freshen your steps with some flower pots. Add three or more pots and create a single line. This will make the space around feels and looks fresher and more interesting. Best of all, this works both for the flower pot outdoor and indoor.
Container Flower Pot
Of all flower pot ideas, this is probably the most unusual one. The flower pot with flowers is not made of terracotta, buckets, or gardening containers. Instead, it is made of an iron tub. Due to this, you can plant many flowers on it.
Reusing unused items is awesome. You don’t need to buy anything as you work with what you already have and it is environment-friendly as well. The bonus is, it has an unusual look. So it will stand out and add a unique visual cue.
Wicker Basket Flower Pots

Summer Flower Pot
When it comes to flower pot ideas, there is practically no limit on what kind of material used to make the pot. For example, if you want your balcony to be fancier, you can add a marble flower pot for balcony as seen here.

Five Tiered Flower Pot
Do you have several flower pots with different sizes? Sometimes, to make the space looks fresher and more attractive, all it takes is some rearrangement. In this case, by rearranging the flower pots. Instead of arranging them horizontally on the flower, stack them up.
Aside from being space-efficient, the stacked flower pots become a focal point that none can miss, let alone ignore. This is especially true if the flowers are overflowing from their respective pot, creating an impression as if they are somehow connected.
As you can see from the previous flower pot ideas, you can turn many unused items into amazing and beautiful flower pots. This one here is another example of that. This time, the flower pot with flowers is made of an iron colander.
A colander has a curved shape and many small holes at its bottom. These features make colander one of the best choices as they resemble conventional pots very much. Better yet, the ‘ears’ of the colander allows you to hang the pot.
The entryway is often left empty. Yet, this is the first and foremost spot where your guests stop before entering the house. If anything, this is the perfect spot to make a positive first impression.
