DIY Indoor Gardens: Nature Within the Home 

Everybody loves a good garden, but some of us simply don’t have the option of a backyard. That doesn’t mean we have to totally give up on being surrounded by greens though! You can bring the nature inside by setting up a creative indoor garden that will serve your most basic culinary needs and add to your decor with its liveliness! Check out this incredible selection of DIY indoor gardens!

Humans produce so much trash every day that any time you can avoid throwing something away and choose to repurpose it instead, you’re doing something good for the environment!

8. Teacup Herb Garden 


When you’re creating a garden indoors there’s a strong need for it to contribute to your interior as well. Maybe your home could do with a touch of old-fashioned tea party inspiration? Thrift some old teacups and learn how you can turn them into a herb garden at Intimate Weddings!

9. Utensil Caddy Herb Garden 


We love buying things on discount and then using them for a totally different purpose than they’re originally meant for! It makes us feel super creative and a little bit rebellious. Make your own rules and plant your indoor garden in a utensil caddy, following Unsophisticook‘s example!

10. Milk Bottle Indoor Garden 


Before you throw away the big milk bottles, ask yourself if maybe your kitchen could benefit from some greenery? Not only are you going to be able to prepare your meals with fresh herbs, your interior will also be spiced up by nature! Those are reasons enough to copy the indoor garden we found at Grillo Designs!

11. Tin Can Indoor Garden 


Tin cans are always fun to create with, especially because we usually have them at hand. They are a wonderful alternative to mason jars, because they are a little more customizable and won’t break if they fall to the floor – a great thing to consider if you have kids!

You’ve decided that your home is in a serious need of color and we couldn’t agree more!
