7 Tips for Making Your Orchid Planter One-of-a-Kind

June 2, 2015

With the growing popularity of orchids, you may be looking for a way to help your plants stand apart from the rest. A great way to showcase your unique tastes and talents is by experimenting with the look and design of your orchid’s planter pot. Try one of our seven best ideas for giving your planter a new look. 

1. Be Square

When it comes time to repot your orchid, break free of the norm and select a planter pot that is anything but round. You can mix things up with a square-shaped planter or get really crazy with an octagonal-shaped pot

2. Be Expressive

Make your planter into a blank canvas where you can speak your mind. Paint your pot with chalkboard paint, and keep a piece of chalk handy nearby. You can write motivational phrases, leave messages for your loved ones or draw a fun design. 

3. Be Patterned 

Who says an orchid can’t get dressed up? Wrap your pot in different prints of fabric to match your home décor. You can even switch out the fabric depending on your mood or the season.

4. Be Picturesque 

With a few copies of your favorite photographs and some Modge Podge, you can personalize your orchid pot with the faces of your friends and family. This is also a great way to personalize the pot of an orchid you intend to give as a gift.

5. Be Festive 

Let your orchid get in the holiday spirit by decorating your planter for each holiday season. Adding little touches of holiday décor can help you express your festive side. Check out our ideas for St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas and Halloween

6. Be Literary 

Are you a booklover? Show off your literary prowess by using Modge Podge to adhere pages of your favorite book to your planter and give it a whole new look. Check out this tutorial for inspiration. 

7. Be Lyrical 

With just a coat of white paint and a fine tipped black marker, your orchid planter can easily play homage to your favorite song. Once your clay planter is painted white and completely dry, write a few verses with a permanent marker, and you’ll be reminded of your favorite lyrics every time you see your plant. 

Your orchid doesn’t have to be just another plant in the crowd. By flexing your design muscle and showcasing your individuality, you can make your orchid planter truly one of a kind.
