Painted herb pots are a fun and easy way to add some personality and style to your indoor or outdoor herb garden!
When growing herbs indoors, it’s important to choose varieties that can thrive in the low light and temperature conditions of your home. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure your herbs are planted in well-draining soil and receive regular watering and fertilization. A bright kitchen window is a perfect spot for indoor herbs and you can trim and cut as needed!
I scored a bunch of small Terracotta pots a few weeks ago for FREE at a garage sale so I gave them a mini makeover and turned them into painted herb garden pots! It’s so fun to see all of our fruit trees filled to the brim. Our last storm brought so much wind and I had about 50 limes I needed to juice so they wouldn’t go to waste. All of the last year’s herbs are starting to pop up as well, it’s so fun to watch I love using fresh herbs there’s no denying that the flavor in your meals is taken up a notch. These pots would be perfect for your indoor herb garden!

Give the pot a good cleaning, you can sand it down as well if needed.
Apply a light coat of clear sealer to the inside of the pot. Let dry and apply another coat. The sealer will prevent moisture from leaking through to the outside after the pot.
Apply 2 coats of paint with a paint brush allowing the paint to dry in-between coats.
Apply the twine using the hot glue around the top rim of the pot.
Apply a chalk label and write the name of the herb (Optional)
Add soil and herbs
