Fresh herbs are such a happy and fragrant addition to the kitchen. I've been wanting to get some potted herbs for awhile, mostly because I have the perfect little window sill just screaming for an herb garden. After getting this pallet-looking crate box from Michaels for Maxson's pirate party, I was stumped on how to use it somewhere in the house and not send it to my decor graveyard (aka the garage). Then, I realized four mason jars fit perfectly inside of it, and that's where my herb garden idea was born. This project is super simple, yet gives a very charming and upscale vibe. Anyone can do this! No craftiness necessary.
What You'll Need:
-four mason jars
-raw wood crate (bought at Michaels; $12 retail price but I used a 40% off coupon)
-stain of your choice (I used Minwax stain in Jacobean)
-four 4" herb planters of your choice. (I got oregano, basil, rosemary, and sage.)
What To Do:
1. Stain your box and let dry completely. I really liked the Jacobean I chose because it gave it a nice, old-looking finish that really makes it look like pallet wood.
2. One at a time, pull your herb out of the pot and loosen the roots. Gently put each one into a mason jar and fill with extra dirt from the pot, if necessary.
3. Place all the jars in your box and water them.
4. Place in your kitchen and marvel at the charm and life it brings to it!
