Ten Fun Planters for Your Spring Flowers

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Ten Fun Planters for Your Spring FlowersI am beginning to believe that spring may really be here and we may not get that last cold snap that we usually get! Sooo…I am starting to think of ways to display my spring flowers…both inside and out! I love to use interesting and unusual items as planters and vases and, since I thought that you might be ready for flowers, too, I decided that I would share them with you today! Here are ten different ways that you can spotlight spring flowers in your home! 

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Burlap-Wrapped Vases#1. Dollar Store Vases
My Pottery Barn inspired burlap-wrapped vases are a fun and inexpensive way to show off some spring blooms! Cluster them on a platter or tray to create a centerpiece for more impact!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Spring Vignette#2. Egg Cups
Plant small flowers such as violas in plain white egg cups and gather them on a vintage silver tray. A little Spanish moss adds to the texture.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Spring Vignette I added mine to my vintage French spring vignette since violas have an old-fashioned feel that reminds me of my grandmother.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Chalkboard Flower Pots#3. Chalkboard Flower Pots
You can create fun little personalized gifts or add a seasonal greeting to these chalkboard flower pots! You can’t get much easier or less expensive than this!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Vintage French Planter Box#4. Painted and Découpaged Box
You can create this vintage-look planter box with a few supplies and an old Clementine box! And…I have even provided the label! I filled mine with lavender…a very frenchy favorite of mine!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Flower Pot Man#5. Flower Pot Man
My little grands love this one…a little flower pot man for your garden! Just choose a small plant to serve as his hair. My little man gets different hair each year just for fun. I have included detailed instructions for assembling him here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Shabby Picnic Basket Planter#6. Picnic Basket Planter
A $4.00 thrift store find was transformed into this shabby picnic basket planter with just a few steps. Mine is waiting to be filled with begonias and added to my patio for the fifth summer…still a favorite!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Touch of Spring#7. Pretty Pitcher
I love adding daffodils to one of my blue and white chinoiserie pitchers for a touch of spring! You can get a closer look and see the rest of the vignette here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring Centerpiece#8. Tureen
I have several white tureens that I love to fill with flowers to add a spring-y feel to my home. For this simple spring centerpiece, I just popped in several small pots of hyacinths wrapped in burlap and…voilà! Easy peasy!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Ironstone and Tulips#9. Vintage Ironstone Teapot
I have a small collection of Red Cliff ironstone pieces and this teapot is one of my favorites! Just add tulips for an early spring centerpiece!
 CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Rustic Easter Centerpiece#10. French Wire Egg Basket
Who says you can’t use a wire basket as a planter? I just wrapped some hyacinths in burlap to add texture and popped them in! They add the perfect touch to this simple and rustic spring centerpiece! Then once they stop blooming, just transfer them to your garden!

Miss KittyMiss Kitty, however, says that spring has not arrived for her until the pot of fresh catnip appears on the patio. I am already on the lookout!
What about you? Are you starting to add some flowers to your home?

  1. Beautiful center pieces. Love bringing Spring in. Our weather is more like summer/ We skipped Winter and Spring.
    Many thanks for all the DIY on the center pieces.
    Have a wonderful Easter with your family.

  2. All are beautiful, but I am crazy for that painted picnic basket turned planter! Had to share with my FB friends as some are avid gardeners!

  3. Wonderful ideas! This gets me in the mood to get outside and plant - but I am thinking I may have to bring my planting inside for a while. We have another gloomy day here! But .... it will just make me appreciate the beautiful weather when it gets here! Have a blessed Easter!

  4. They're all so pretty - hard to pick a favourite. I love the tureen and the honey and lavender clementine box. Happy Easter!

  5. Great ideas i'll pin them to save but,i'll pick one for now,i just don't know Thanks Debbie and have a Happy Easter.

  6. Wonderful inspiration here, Debbie. Especially like the egg cup filled with pansy or viola. I'm going to remember that. Pinning it asap!
