Easy DIY Wooden Herb Garden

Hey guys! It’s Kari from Life PreKARIous. Today I’m going to show you how I made this fun DIY Wooden Herb Garden.

I always say I’m not much of a green thumb, but I have managed to keep a few things alive in my lifetime…including a couple kids and a dog so I figured, what the heck, I’ll give it another go! 

Here’s what I used to make my DIY wooden herb garden:

  • wood
  • wood glue
  • staple gun + staples
  • metal corner brackets
  • sand paper
  • wood stain
  • wire baskets
  • metal pots

Mine is pretty small since I’m only doing four different kinds of herbs. You could always adjust the size to fit more if you wanted.

First, I cut my wood to fit the height of the herbs and the width of the small baskets that would go inside.  

Here’s the breakdown of the sizes of wood I used for mine:

To attach the wood together I first applied wood glue to the ends and then stapled the pieces together. If your a patient person, unlike me, you can skip the staples and hold the glued pieces together with furniture clamps until the glue dries. 

Once all my pieces were glued and stapled, I added metal brackets to the back of each corner. 

Then, I lightly sanded the whole thing and applied one coat of stain. I love the contrast of natural wood with the neon plant markers, so I used a natural stain color, but you could pick any color you like!

After the stain was dry I added the baskets and potted herbs and hung it on my kitchen wall.

I'm Kari. Saw wielding, usually covered in paint, wife of a hard-working, bearded ginger and mother of 4 (2 human, 2 canine). I’m impulsive. I’m messy. I’m unorganized and I’m horrible with time management. But… I’m creative. That’s my excuse. I have a deep-seated need to create things. I always have. Also, I like to party.
