In case you were wondering, yes, the houseplant trend is still going strong, and yes, I’m okay with it. Although I’m glad we’ve graduated from the fiddle leaf frenzy (don’t get me wrong, my fiddle leaf gives me life!) just because there are too many fun plants out there to stick to just one type.

I literally could go on and on about all the varieties, but we’ll save that for another post…For now, I’ve rounded up 23 super unique DIY planters and pots to spruce up the the plant babies you already have. Spring is the perfect time to repot, resoil, and refresh your plants, after all. Click through for all 23 DIY planter ideas.

These planting ideas are super cute! One thing I love to do with my planted herbs is to get out my Cricut vinyl machine and make little word labels to put on each pot. I love to customize and organize with my vinyl lettering on my plants!
