7 easy to make planters for tiny spaces

With the weather warming up and spring finally here, lately I've had gardening and pretty plants on my mind. Living in a rental there's not really space for a garden so I find myself gravitating toward adorable little planters for herbs and touches of green to bring a little life inside. Right now I'm loving all of these crafty ideas, most of which are easy DIY projects perfect for bringing nature indoors. Ready to wield your green thumb? Here are 7 of the pretty planters that are perfect for small spaces:




1. Neon Stripe Planters

These neutral planters were jazzed up with a bit of neon spray paint. Bright colors are super popular this season, whether you're dealing with fashion, make-up or decor, so we love the fun, trendy color-blocking of this design.
