"I recall my dad making some interesting and attractive planters from old roof tiles. He drilled two holes near the corner on each edge of one and on three edges of four more. (Make sure you drill at a low speed else they’re likely to crack). He then simply wired the five pieces together (the one drilled on 4 sides on the botom) to make planters. The rust from the wire he’d used looked quite pretty, rather surprisingly, and the gaps around the edges of the tiles made for excellent drainage."
