I will follow up with different ways that I have been gardening reusing cereal boxes, the plastic pieces that plants come in at nurseries,milk cartons, flat egg carton pieces and many more...
One can repurpose pretty much everything that comes into the house. I know we do.
Repurpose to plant holder from nursery -
For the container that little plants come in at the nurseries that have the holes at the bottom,
we just simply took a cereal box made circles that would fit inside by tracing a small paint can..
We trace the paint cans and made as many circles as possible that would fit on the cereal box.
Then we cut the circles out to put them in the bottom of the little planters.
Then fill with soil put a seed in and you have more pots to plant in.
Milk jug- I like to cut in half, put holes on the bottom and then Fill with soil and it makes a little greenhouse.
2 L bottles and even water bottles- There's 3 ways of doing it.
One you can cut the bottles in half or cut the bottom piece to be a bit bigger than the top.. Fill with soil and plant a seed.
Lay the bottle on its side and cut to make an indent on the bottle. Fill with soil and plant seeds.

You know one can even use the plastic to go boxes.... all you have to do is cut the lid off and you have 2 pieces to plant In.
Or ... you can use the plastic containers that salads come in.
5 gallon buckets.. I put between 4 to 5 inch holes along the bottom on the side and then I put soil. I have planted potatoes, bushes( Blueberry boysenberry ) and corn in those.

The paper ice cream containers- I would poke holes at the bottom fill with soil and plant.
What about the plastic kraft macaroni and cheese container the one that you would pop in the microwave to cook the noodles and then add the cheese... I used that just put a couple holes at the bottom add soil and plant in it.
What about the five dozen eggs flats?we reuse the cartons from those. All you do is you add soil and seeds. It drains itself.
