With a little imagination you can reuse cracked pots in many different ways. This DIY project requires minimal effort, but at the same time adds character to your garden. If your pot collar is still intact, then you can use it to protect a tiny seedling.

If you have a couple of big terracotta pieces, then you can consider building a sanctuary for beneficial insects like wasps and solitary bees that will pollinate your crops and flowers.

The look and feel of this DIY project is directly correlated to the size of the terracotta pot. Start by placing the pot with the cracked side down, and plant a daisy carpet — as if spreading out from the base of the pot. Daisies grow fast, so this project should start coming together in just a few weeks.

1.  Plant labels

This project will work best with smaller pot shards, but if you recently shattered a large terracotta pot, then you can use those pieces instead.  Simply grab a piece and using a wax pencil label the plant. Then you can just stick these into the ground (or other pots) next to your plants to easily identify those greens.
