Herb Planters

ImageOne of the things I love most about Kansas is the fact that I get to have my own garden!

See, in Arizona most of everything just dies. I mean the only place we have grass is at the park (and I’m sure they pay a fortune to water it with the 120 degree weather). So I’ve really loved having a garden. I love flowers and things like that. However, my older brother (who lives in California and has his own garden) started to rub off on me. His garden consists of all things you can eat, while mine is full of pretty flowers and bushes.

So I decided to plant some herbs! And I hope to rub off on you too, so you plant some as well! I planted basil, thyme, parsley, and cilantro. Now you might be thinking ,”I don’t even use those herbs”. But would you use them more if you had them lying around and they were free? Probably.

To make the planters, I just painted the top and bottom different colors. I used a paint pen to write the different names of the herbs on the outside. And they’re super cute!

They definitely spice up the kitchen with the bright colors. I’m in love, and I can’t wait to season my food with my own herbs!

SO I saw this picture online of some cute ribbon glued to a pot. And thought, “well why didn’t I think of that sooner” and “how CUUYTEE”.

I am a die heart scrapbooker, so ribbon is something I totally love. Plus, I am an old lady so I love ribbon and lace attached to anything.

Super hard steps to make:

1. Get pot and ribbon and glue (or Mod Podge) and scissors.
2. With a paint brush, paint the areas in which you want the ribbon to be. I’ve seen people use regular Elmer’s glue, and it works just fine. I used Mod Podge’s Matte, which is a glue, sealer, and finish.
3. Apply ribbon to glue.
4. (Optional, but recommended) After sticking the ribbon to glue, apply another layer of glue over the ribbon. This helps it to stick better and prevents it from coming up at the edges.

And now you have yourself some cute pots!
