Hand-Painted Townhouse

This hand-painted piece would make a darling residence for some herbs, no? With its townhouse shape and watercolor blooms, this planter is as charming as it is playful. While you could purchase just one, we suggest shopping the set to create a whimsical neighborhood on your windowsill.

Stained Glass Stunner

Macrame has met its match; these days, we're obsessed with hanging planters made from stained glass. Snag this delicate, iridescent piece by artist Katie Sue Weissel and display it in your kitchen window, where it'll catch the light and cast rainbows.

Half-Moon Holder

Dare we say it? This tiny half-moon planter is downright dreamy. Curved in a crescent shape and coated with a metallic finish, the piece will cast a gentle glow on small succulents. Pair it with quartz crystals to emphasize its mystical vibes.

Contemporary Chinoiserie

Excuse us while we swoon over this Chinoiserie-inspired situation. Though the crisp, blue-and-white color palette makes the vessel look vintage, the geometric print gives it a contemporary twist. In turn? You can pair this piece with just about anything.

Buy It: Terrain, $8 - $12

Fab Figure Study

Celebrate natural beauty in all its forms with a planter covered in abstract figures. We love the way the lines capture the look of brushstrokes on a blank page, and can already picture this piece in the corner of an artist's studio.

Buy It: Urban Outfitters, $24

Friendly Faces

Made by London-based ceramicist Kinska, these pretty pots are as much planters as they are works of art. We love that each one features a face with a soft smile or pretty pout, with a black-and-white color scheme to create a sense of cohesion. Shop the set to ensure that your plants are always in good company.

Buy It: Anthropologie, $16 - $24

Vintage Milk Jug

ICYMI, mason jars are out and milk jugs are in. Inspired by the charming cannisters once found on dairy farms, this earthenware accent has two small side handles and a round lip that's just begging to be filled with wildflowers.

Hilarious RIP Planter

Lean into your complete lack of a green thumb with this hilarious and all too poignant RIP Planter from artist Timothy Goodman. The small pot is the perfect size for a tiny cactus or other drought-tolerant plants, with bold text that reads like an epitaph. (Just in case you still manage to kill it.)
