If it's got a hole and some wiggle room, it'll probably pass for a planter. Instead of turning to the traditional vase to start a blooming good time, check out your own laundry room or storage closet for some suitable finds. Got a retired tin that needs new purpose? Has goldie gone down the toilet to meet her maker? Turn that tin and her old digs into a new place for your fresh new shrubs. Tin boxes, wheel barrels, and coffee mugs may turn you into a mad potter.
