Easy DIY Projects | Chalkboard Painted Herb Pots

I am all about easy DIY projects. Here is a super easy Spring DIY project, Chalkboard Painted Herb Pots,  that is not only simple, but so fun. I am a tiny bit obsessed with chalkboard paint! Soon, I hope I will have fresh herbs, Basil, Oregano and Cilantro in my kitchen window. See below for instructions.

Materials You Need:

  • Small terra cotta pots – I purchased my 4″ Terra Cotta pots from Home Depot for .78 cents each.

  • I covered each rim of the pots with artist tape (you can use masking tape.)
  • Holding the pot by the taped rim, I sprayed the exposed clay part with the Chalkboard paint.
  • After the chalkboard paint dries (follow instructions on the can) I removed the tape.
  • I filled each pot with potting mix and planted the seeds.
  • I wrote each herb name on the pots with the white chalk.
  • They are placed in my kitchen window with full sun.
