You can hang it in your balcony or garden to create a dreamy ambience.

As kids we all owned gum boots that we wore to school on rainy days, right? Well, if you still have them lying around then you should totally use them as planters for your home garden. Just look at how quirky and colourful they look! Pick up some boots and some paint brushes, and start painting them in various colours and designs. Fill them up with mud and sow the seeds of happiness!
DIY Planters Idea #3: Recycle Wine Bottles
Stacks of wine bottles lying around home after parties and too pretty to be trashed? Fret not. Just pick those bottles up and carefully fill them with mud, stones or water.
