Five New Vase & Planter Ideas From Recycled Objects

Keep your flowers looking lovely in some fun and unique vases from recycled objects!It’s not Springtime without fresh flowers and sometimes even the simplest of blooms can be elevated with a unique container to put them in. Because we love finding new uses for everyday items (not to mention Earth Day is this month), we came up with 5 unique, recycled vase and planter ideas for your floral arrangements. You probably already have most of them in your home!

Recycle a glass bottle by turning it into a vase! Get more floral arrangement ideas on Lily & Val Living!

Recycle your glass bottles in a new way! This cold brew coffee bottle has the perfect amount of detail and charm to show off a few fresh blooms. The brown color gives it an almost apothecary feel and really makes those bright purple daisies pop!

Color block your floral arrangements to make them look fresh and fancy! Add a teacup as your vase for extra elegance!

Head to the thrift store for some pretty tea cups and mugs that will add a delicate touch to any small bouquet! Use mugs and cups in different shapes, colors, and sizes for a pretty display, perfect for tea party decor. Another simple arranging tip: color coordinate!  Even supermarket bouquets can look special when you color block.

Harney & Sons Tea tins make for beautiful flower vases! Fun colored tins make all the blooms pop!

Speaking of tea party decor…Harney & Sons Fine Teas are not only delicious, but their tins are absolutely gorgeous!  The colors and details make them so hard to throw the empty canisters away, so we’re happy to fill them up with a pretty bouquet!

A classic glass dessert dish can be even sweeter as a succulent planter! A hot pink cactus keeps it unique and quirky!

We love filling a small dessert dish with a couple scoops of ice cream, but we also love this shallow, vintage dessert dish as a unique footed vase for a succulent or cactus.  How beautiful is that bright pink?! Be sure to check out this post filled with tips on planting succulents in small containers.

A thrifted copper footed dish is the perfect planter for some vibrant green succulents!

One of our favorite items to give new life was this copper footed dish. It is the perfect planter for some vibrant green succulents.  Don’t worry about polishing- the tarnish gives it an extra rustic, antique feel, which we love.

We hope this post inspires you to look beyond the traditional vase for your spring blooms! Each idea can easily mix and match together for an eclectic centerpiece filled with character. Now every pretty container we see, we want to transform into a vase.  Guess that means we’ll have to get more flowers…

Keep your flowers looking lovely in some fun and unique recycled vases!
