It’s exciting to DIY plants in shoes. When it comes to making new from old, it’s been done before; however, it may still be new to some of us when it comes to making planters from old shoes. This is an excellent idea for homeowners with a small garden space or not enough floor space to buy a shipping container. Not only that, but it allows you to get more creative and is a great way to transform old shoes into nice, fresh green ones! Check out our options for you.
Recycle ideas to DIY old shoes
Going green has become fashionable these days, especially with climate change and the hot issue of saving our environment.
At the same time, being creative and stylish never goes out of style. This makes turning old shoes and boots into flower pots an excellent concept. We can also get a lot out of this unique project.
Most obviously, we can grow plants, we can save money from buying boring plant containers, we can maximize the space in our mini garden, and we can (show off) enjoy our creative and stylish side.

Others have also found emotional reasons for turning shoes and boots into flower pots. Some people are so attached to a favorite thing that they resonate with it. It’s a great way to leave a part of someone we miss. Turning your original pair of chuck shoes into a planter can also help you reminisce about those fun, crazy high school days.

Another thing you’ll love about making pots with shoes and boots is that it’s easy to get started. All you need are those discarded shoes and boots that you no longer need at home.
