Strawberry Planters!

I love recycling.  The idea of reusing something and giving it a whole new purpose is a real bonus. I get loads of comments about the weird and wonderful ways in which I turn potentially useless items into something bespoke and unique.

My latest invention is my unique strawberry planters!

20130305-171001.jpgI had some plastic spools a while ago from the factory that my husband works at and I asked for ideas on how I could use them within the garden. I knew that there would be something useful that I could do with them.

I have since decided that they would be ideal planters for strawberries as the inside sections were the ideal size for one plant.

Here are a few pictures of the planters being built and the final product displaying the strawberries in all of their glory!

Happy recyclin’

    Oh, that’s cool! We don’t have anything like those lying around, but still, I like it! Strawberry’s make anything look great, don’t they!
