Good Morning Houseologie readers! I’m Katie, the girl behind Little House of Four. I am thrilled that Leigh Anne asked me to guest post for her today and hope you enjoy the project I have to share.
With Gardening season in full swing I thought it would be the perfect time to share a fun gardening project. I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year and always look forward to planting our garden.
I tend to use a lot of Basil and Cilantro in recipes, especially during the spring and summer months. There’s nothing better than fresh homemade salsa and herbs straight from the garden. This year, in addition to our garden I wanted to keep a few herb pots close to the kitchen for easy access. You know, because sometimes you just don’t feel like walking out to the garden.
Here are the materials I used:
- Clay pots
- White paint
- Wood tags
- Metal labels (found in the scrapbook section)
- Scrapbook paper
- Hot glue gun and glue
I started by painting each pot with two coats of white chalk paint then sanded them for a distressed look.
Once the pots were finished I worked on making the wood tags. I started by glueing the scrapbook paper to each wood piece then drilled another hole in the wood using a small drill bit. The label holders were then easily attached with matching brads.
Now, I just have to make sure my brown thumb doesn’t kill the plants before I actually get to use the herbs!
Here are a few of my favorite projects.
