DIY Herb Garden

You Will Need.

Wood Nails
Wood Stain
x4 Large Glass Jars
Printer Cardboard
Fine Sandpaper
White Craft Paint

1. We start with this table. The first thing you’re going to do is take the top of the table off.

 2. Pull off the bottom two planks. Place the rest of the lid flat on the ground and position the two planks so as they are resting on top of the larger part and sticking up in the air.

3.  Drive Nails through from the back of the Larger Piece to secure the two together.

 4. Using your Chosen Wood Stain coat your wooden Herb Garden and allow 24 Hours to dry

5. Print out the words Herb Garden on a piece of Cardboard in you desired font and size.
Using a scalpel cut out the letters.
Place the stencil in the top right hand corner of your Herb Garden and using a small roller paint over the stencil in white.

 6. Once the Paint has dried, using a very fine sandpaper rub over the painted words gently to add a rustic feel and rough up the edges of the wooden structure while you’re at it
7. Place your four Large Glass Containers on your ledge and there you have it, your very own Herb Garden
