DIY Herb Garden Project

I love being outside and I love watching things grow! I'm a farm girl at heart and nothing warms my heart more than harvesting and cooking fresh veggies from the garden! Now, if I'm being completely transparent, I must admit - my thumb is not the greenest in the world - although I wish it was! 

I've been dying to plant an herb garden for some time now, so I finally decided to give it a try!  Needless to say, if I'm going to watch these little darlings grow, they needed a cute little home! 

After a quick trip to Lowe's and digging in my old art supplies, I found everything I needed to do a terra cotta pot makeover and plant my little herbs! A quick whitewash and a light distressing provided the backdrop while hand lettering the names on the front finished up the makeover! To make it super easy, I'm including a tutorial as well as the template, so you can hand-letter your pots too! 

Supply List:

  • Terra Cotta pots (6")
  • White & Black acrylic paint
  • China bristle paintbrush
  • Round paintbrush (for lettering)
  • 220 grit sand paper
  • Pencil
  • Tape
  • Printed template 
  • Scissors
