Chair Planter Ideas

A few chair planter ideas!


I know I said I was trying to patient this spring.  Like I’m holding off on the mulch & mowing the yard & all of that.

But I have a confession:

I already brought my chair planters out of storage & placed them in the yard!

Honestly, a lot of it had to do with getting them out of my basement!  We’re trying to clear out our basement & the chair planters were taking up space so we moved them outside.  Of course, I didn’t have to place them in the yard.  I could have hid them behind the house or something?!  But here they are, all flowerless out in the yard!  I probably look like that person who just can’t wait!  But really, I just can't wait!

I thought I’d do a little post today on chair planters since I already have mine outside!

These pictures are from a couple years ago but I thought it would be fun to look at them & get inspired for what is to come!

Let’s start with the traditional chair planter:

The trick for the traditional planter is to pick really bushy flowers that overflow the chair.

These chairs are from my mom’s garden & I just love them!  They’re a work of art!  The flowers overflow the chair perfectly!

Now, I kind of missed the memo with the overflowing part!  I usually do my flowers independently & just stick them on top of my chairs!  I love using old sap buckets for my planters!  Since they take so much soil, I’ve been putting stone in the bottom of them & filling it the rest of the way up with soil.  They’re also not blowing all over the yard that way!

I also found a set of these awesome goose planters at a yard sale that I’ve been displaying in various ways.  Here’s one on top of one of the chairs:

Another idea is to find a planter that fits in the chair & go from there!  I like this idea my mom did a couple years ago:

I can’t wait to get to the greenhouse & pick out flowers for my planters/chairs!

I think I might attempt the overflowing chairs this year because I have a couple chairs missing their seats!
