Make this rustic DIY herb box planter for your home this spring. Use indoors or out and grow an adorable herb garden! Add in full grown plants or seeds. An herb garden is a fun way to get the kids involved with growing their own food as well.
- Darice Galvanized Metal Planter
- Darice Chalkboard Jar Tags
- Darice Jute Twine
- Outdoor Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Weeding Tools (optional)
- Drill and Drill Bit
- Herb Markers Cut File (click here to access)
- Cricut or Silhouette Machine
Start by uploading the herb garden marker file to your Cricut or Silhouette software. Be sure to resize the image so each word will fit on your tags. Cut the names of the herbs you are planting from outdoor vinyl. Weed away any excess vinyl including the centers of the letters.
Use the holes in the tags to mark for holes in the front of your planter. I used a hammer and nail to mark the holes but you could also use a marker. Then use a drill and drill bit to add holes in those locations. You can use a grinder to clean up the sharp edges but remember that those should be covered with dirt once you add your plants.
Add rocks in the bottom of your planter for drainage. You can also drill holes in the bottom of the planter with your drill. Then add your dirt and plant some small herb plants or sprinkle on your seeds.
I love having an herb garden every single spring and this DIY herb box planter makes an adorable addition to my back patio. This one could also be used indoors right in your kitchen. However you use it, you are sure to love it!
