If you are looking for a simple can't go wrong kind of DIY project for your plants, look no further. This could not be easier, cheaper or cuter planter you can DIY in one hour, and guess what, it's Eco-friendly too. Let's cut to the chase.

Things you need for the coconut planters:

  • 3 coconuts (or any number of your choice), £0.70 each

  • natural jute, £1.5

  • 6 small plants (I did mine with succulents), £1.5 each

  • a small package of potting soil £2

Total budget £14.6 for 6 planters - it's a steal!

Here is how to DIY coconut planters in a few simple steps:

1. Choose the size
