Kawaii Planters To Buy or DIY

Posted on


If you’re spending more time at home, maybe it’s a good time to try raising some plants. Of course, they’ll need a cute home so here’s some of my favourite kawaii planters that you can buy online or make yourself. Most don’t come with plants but you can order them online too – search air plants or tiny plants for local suppliers.

The inspiration for this post theme was FunUsualSuspects (USA) who have so many super cute air plant holders. You can even choose to add a plant and nutrient spray so you’ll all ready to go. I’m partial to these snails (including a new mail snail!) but there’s sloths, whales, pineapples, donuts and more.

3D printing has opened up some fun new product ideas and The Build Plate (Canada) specialise in cute planters. How can you resist such happy faces that come in so many colours? They also have cats, dogs, pumpkins and some anime and video game characters.

cats ceramic planters

My personal preference is always for ceramics as I love how every piece looks unique. Jam & Bee (USA) make some very cute ceramic planters including cats of various breeds to match your own kitty.

I never would have thought of needle felted planters but I’m glad The Yarn Kitchen (EU) did! There’s animals, fruit and more to choose from and my favourite is this sleepy pig.

Or just brighten everything up with a rainbow planter by DOIY (EU). It’s just so colourful and positive.

Or grab some plain pots from the garden centre or supermarket and turn them into patterned painted pots. Katie K DIY shows you how.

Are you a plant friend or do you have a black thumb? My one little cactus is doing really well after a few years so maybe I’m ready for a second plant.
