With this month’s theme being “Clean, green, the scene,” I decided to create a green scene with wonderful, fresh herbs in the form of a windowsill herb garden.
I enjoy starting my herb garden indoors and transplanting it to our outdoor garden later in the spring. In our family we love to cook with fresh herbs. I personally love using fresh cilantro when making my famous guacamole.
You can plant any of your favorite herbs with this DIY project. Utilizing the chalkboard paint gives you the option to change up your planting creation at any time. For readers who have cats that sunbath in the windowsill you may choose to plant cat grass.
Supplies
• Clay pots (depending on how many different items you want to plant)
• Chalkboard paint
• Chalk
• Potting soil
• Seeds for your favorite herbs
• Ribbon
• Glue gun
• Glue sticks
How-To
15 min: Paint the clay pots with chalk board paint (you will want to paint two layers. Be sure to let the first layer dry before applying the second coat)
5 min: Cure the chalk board paint. Cover the pot with chalk and wash off with a damp cloth
10 min: Start planting. Fill each pot with potting soil and plant the seeds or starter plants
3 Min: Label each pot with chalk
Place pots in a sunny window, water and enjoy!
