Quirky and Funny Planter Heads

I’ve been in a gardening state of mind since going on all the house and garden tours recently. I have a yard, but I don’t have the knack (or interest) for gardening.  I don’t have a green thumb for indoor plants either. But, I do love an interesting planter and more specifically planter heads which have really caught my eye recently.

Of course, there’s these more typical garden statuary which are always beautiful. But, planter heads are smaller and work indoors or outdoors.

And I’m not talking about the classic Chia Pet:



Planter heads can be subtle:

There are a lot of DIY videos on YouTube – but honestly, they are a lot of work. (And I don’t need another hobby I never actually spend time on).

Editing to add: I bought this beauty at Anthropologie today.

I put together a little shopping boutique and am excited to make a selection for my own planter head! (Please note that this boutique includes affiliate links. A small commission is paid on purchases made at no additional cost to the buyer. This goes to help pay for this blog. Thank you!)

  1. So much fun! Great selections…might need to add one of these to my own repertoire 🙂 I too am not a gardener, but love the beauty of gardens and this is a small manageable option!

  2. I haven’t really noticed these but now I will definitely be on the lookout for them! What a great post Linda, you’ve opened up my eyes to something I find really interesting!
