One of my goals for 2013 is to try a different Pinterest pin each month.
Last month I made these delicious Salted Caramel Pumpkin Muffins. While I was tempted to try another recipe, I dared myself to be bold and go crafty. These cute faux chalkboard herb pots were calling my name:
So, I gathered my supplies:
- 3 terra cotta pots ($1.99 each)
- DecoArt”Patio Paints” in Wrought Iron Black, Blue Jay Blue, Sweet Pea Green, & Petunia Purple ($1.99 each)
- A paintbrush for each color (you can buy a pack of 4 for $1 at Dollar Tree)
- Elmer’s silver paint pen ($3.99)
And the girls painted their wooden birdhouses ($1 at JoAnns) while I painted my pots.
So I painted two coats on each pot. Then, after the paint dried, I added black paint for a faux chalkboard finish.
After the black paint dried, I wrote the names of herbs I use frequently in the kitchen: basil, cilantro, & chives.
I have seeds to plant in each pot, but until the weather warms a little, I’m using them as decorative pieces in the house thanks to my mom 🙂
I think they turned out pretty cute.
Do you have potted herbs in the house?
If so, which are your favorites?
