diy herb planters in up-cycled cans

by Julie Nichols, April 07, 2016
Having fresh herbs in your kitchen is easy with these DIY farmhouse planters. These small planters fit perfect on any kitchen window sill.  I use them in my own kitchen for easy access when preparing meals for my family. 


HERE'S HOW TO UP-CYCLE TIN CANS INTO FARMHOUSE STYLE HERB PLANTERS 

I used soup cans and my printer to create three planters. These small planters are perfect for the kitchen and will make a great Mother's Day gift! 

FOR THIS PROJECT YOU WILL NEED:
 soup cans
seed packets
printer
card stock
mod podge
hot glue gun
scissors
burlap 
herb plants
        

        seed packets                     enlarge                          cut

Using my printer, I printed the seed packets on card stock and enlarged them to 8 1/2" x 11"
I cut the burlap to fit the size of the can and used a hot glue gun to adhere the burlap to the can. 
Next, I cut off the top banner of the printed seed packet and glued it to the burlap using Mod Podge.





I purchased small herb plants and planted them inside the cans. 



AND THAT'S IT!!


If you are giving these as a gift you can tuck the seed packets inside the cans! You can even find a pretty basket to put all three!

If you want to make these at a later time just pin it!
