Outdoor Planters

Now that Spring is here, I have been trying to find ways to add more flowers to my outdoor spaces without going over my budget.

I love planters over flowing with my favorite flowers and like to keep herbs growing in an easy to reach outdoor area so they are easy to clip when I need them for cooking.   Here are nine unique and easy to make planters and vases that will grace any outdoor space- all made by simply re-purposing ordinary items.
