DIY Herb Pots! These look so easy and are not only cute but practical.

Michael’s has put together some fabulous projects for us to make. Seriously, I spent almost 2 hours looking through everything in the store! Today, I’m giving you a peek at one of the projects that I made and one that you can make too!

These Chalkboard Herb Pots are not only super trendy but are really inexpensive to make and easy.

We cook a lot in my family and my husband has been asking for a small herb garden for a long time. Well, I finally did it!

I actually learned a lot about herbs during this project. Like the ones I potted are actually outdoor herbs and I have to wait for indoor ones to come in later this season. So sadly, my pots will have to be moved outside once the temps warm up.

Chives! What a cute little DIY Pot!

But aren’t they just so cute?

All of my supplies were purchased on one of the end caps at Michaels (except for the herbs, of course).

Herb Pot Supplies

Here’s what you need:

- 3 Terracotta Pots

- 3 saucers

- White Multi-Surface Paint

- Foam Brush

- Oval Chalkboard Labels

- 100 Grit Sand Paper

- Birch Rounds (optional)

Painting Pots

I started by painting the pots with the white paint. They needed a solid two coats! But thankfully the paint dries fast.

Then, I wrote out my chalkboard labels and adhered them to the pots.

I put the labels onto the pots and lightly distressed the edges for a more rustic vintage look.

Lastly, I potted chives, parsley and oregano and placed them on birch rounds for fun. I kind of fell in love with Michaels huge birch section and I HAD to buy something!

I’ve got a few other projects up my sleeve too! Here are some other ideas from Michaels. I can’t wait to see YOUR spin on them at the party!

    If you are giving the door a fresh coat of paint
    in a new color, you can paint the molding after it is attached along with
    the remainder of the door. If you work it out, it can become extremely strong, but if
    you don’t, it will not only be weak, but you may develop incontinence,
    among other things. To avoid any unwanted happenings during their yoga class.
