Potted Herb Garden

Here is a little project that I put together this year for Mother's Day gifts.  I wanted to get this post up before Sunday, for some Mother's Day inspiration.  But since Mother's Day is already past, I figured this would still make a great birthday gift!

This project is pretty self-explanatory.  Gather the supplies you will need for your herb garden.  I purchased a clay pot from Hobby Lobby on sale for $2.99.  I found the gloves and the spade at the dollar store.  The herbs were purchased from Lowes as a pack of four and the potting soil I had on hand. 

I spray painted the clay pots and decorated them with vinyl.  But, if you don't want to use vinyl, a stencil would work really well too. 

I filled the pot with soil and left the seeds, spade and gloves on top.

This is so easy to make and is a gift that will keep on giving all year.

Have a great Monday!

  10. What an adorable idea! The way the pots are painted and decorated up, you'd never know they were of the clay variety. A really nice touch that's different!
