There’s nothing like fresh herbs to make any recipe taste better. Why not have them at your fingertips with a hanging herb garden? A few inexpensive items make it an attractive yet functional addition to your kitchen.
The great thing about this craft is its adaptability. Get a rustic look with reclaimed wood or ‘rough up’ scrap boards from other projects. If you have a modern, more sophisticated look in mind, paint the board a glossy black or white.
When it comes to the buckets, leave them natural and accent with a ribbon or spray paint them a color to match your décor—it’s totally up to you!
How to make a hanging herb garden
- wooden board, cut 7″ x 22″
- 2 sawtooth hangers
- 3 tin buckets, 3⅞” high with 4⅛” opening
- spray paint with all-in-one paint and primer
- 3 screws
- glue and ribbon (optional)
- potted herbs
- Cut board then attach sawtooth hangers to the back, using a hammer.
- Spray tin buckets with 2 coats of all-in-one paint and primer, allowing them to dry completely after each coat.
- Wrap ribbon around each bucket and glue to adhere.
- Space buckets evenly apart on the board. Drill a pilot hole through each bucket as well as the board. Fasten buckets to the board using screws then hang. Place potted herbs in the buckets.
