Any plant parent knows you can never have enough unique pots for your house plants, and it takes some serious self-control to not buy every mesmerizing planter we see. Designing a planter is a fun activity to get the artistic juices flowing and craft a lasting memory of a special Valentine’s Day. There are countless ways you can create your own planter at home! For any type of homemade planters, we recommend purchasingplastic liners to ease the mess and reduce any moisture loss. Just clean out your planter, get the proper soil (ageneral potting mix will work great for most plants), and place your plant in the plastic liner right in your new planter! You can get incredibly creative with what you transform into a homemade planter! Looking for a rustic feel? Grab a few old soup cans, sand off the color, and buy some acrylic paint to create a design of your own! Do you have a wooden crate or old dresser that has been sitting in the garage for months? These are great bases for a chic design project that can host an herb garden or a mid-sized plant! Perhaps you have a souvenir mug you want to display? Add some pebbles as a base layer and plant a succulent for a one-of-a-kind kitchen decoration. The possibilities truly are endless, and as soon as you think of one idea the rest are sure to start flowing! Bring some stencils, a few paint colors, and a creative eye to make the most of this date-night activity.
