With the price of flower pots on a constant rise, finding a low-cost solution is an absolute necessity. And finding one that is made from cheap plastic containers just blows the roof off.
Instructables user – NoahW found a solution you can easily use to create DIY planters that look as professional as the ones you would get from a home supply store. He illustrates how you can create your own planters. Noah W further showed that virtually any planter size can be made using a corresponding container size.
To make the planters on your own, you will have to start with a plastic container. Here, Noah W wanted to plant some fruit trees so he used some 55-gallon drums he found on Craigslist for only $10
He made holes in the bottom to let water drain out and added wooden slats to the side. He used a nail gun to attach the wood to the container. But how he managed to keep soil from falling out was completely genius.
