In this article we are writing about a great activity for DIY lovers for the summer. The green plants and lush flowers are simply part of this season. So great self-made vessels for storing them would be a wonderful idea. Both the plants and the flower pots that we will show you below have a decorative value in themselves. But if you turn it into an overall concept and a small work of art, then the whole thing has something even more positive about it! So let’s give you some inspiring examples. There is also a great instruction from pictures.

Create high-contrast decorations with your DIY flower pots

Glamorous flower pots emphasize the sculptural appearance

There are probably some plants that could be described as modern. These are those with a sculptural appearance of the leaves. Like this one in our first photo! They emphasize this character through a contrast. In this case you got it through a shiny flower pot.

You could do this yourself – either you take another vessel with a glossy surface and adapt it to the needs of the plants. Or you can spice up an ordinary plant with gold color or foil! In both cases you will achieve a similar effect.

The flower pots can make a great wall design


Accent wall with artfully arranged flower pots

The zoning of open living spaces is a key concept in modern interior design. The accent walls and the creative wall design as well. An installation made of flower pots and wooden boards could be wonderfully suitable for both purposes. In this case, the structural elements have both a decorative and a supporting function. This self-made idea for wall design can be particularly suitable for larger apartments if you want to feel the room visually and thus make it more comfortable. A practical tip: Position such a flower pot installation in a sunny place in the room. This will allow the plants to develop much better!

Create an exotic atmosphere with macrame


Bring the exotic into the room with hanging baskets

Filling the interior with plants is a very good method if you want to create an exotic atmosphere in your home. But the best way to achieve this effect is with hanging lamps. So your interior has something of the character of a rainforest. The DIY ideas are a very good idea in this case. They give you the opportunity for tailor-made solutions. These should then be in harmony with your interior design and decoration. The macrame with its knitting patterns is ideal for this otherwise neutral and brightly furnished room.

Create contrasts!

In the example above we see a contrast between a modern, neutral wall and vintage flower pots. A comparison cannot only exist in a stylistic sense. Different kinds of contrasting colors together make up an appealing concept. Most of the time, the contrasts come about naturally when, for example, plants are distributed in a bright room. This is all the more noticeable when they are attached to the wall. Likewise, consider other contrasts that are more original and modern!

The vertical wall design with plant pots could become the focal point in the room!
