Teapots, Cups, and Saucers
What: Pre-loved items, like a chipped cup and saucer or a cracked teapot, get a whole new lease on life when reused as planters.
How To: To allow for drainage, drill a hole in the bottom (you'll need a glass or ceramic drill bit, which will run about $10 at a hardware store). Fill with an inch or two of potting soil, and insert a small plant or flower. Want to skip the drilling? Drainage isn't necessary if you're planting a succulent like a sedum or cactus; just be careful not to over-water.
