Want to know how to make the easiest pallet wood herb garden? Trust me, if I can do it so can you!
When your BFF says she “needs” to make an herb garden before her son gets married, you ALWAYS say OK! Had I ever made a pallet wood herb garden before, NO! Was I sure I could do it, ABSOLUTELY!
I love to try new things!
I really wanted to help her spruce up the area of her patio that the wedding reception was going to be held!
She has the cutest ranch home with an adorable carport area that her family uses as a hang-out spot!
So what could we use?
A free pallet. We started with staining it gray. We chose Varathane Weathered Gray I love this stain. I use it on EVERYTHING!
Deciding how many pots and herbs she wanted was the next step. She made a quick trip to Home Depot to pick up the herbs and pots. We chose to use 4″ pots. With the scale of the pallet and the variety of herbs she wanted we thought that size would work best.
We planted all of the herbs pretty quick and then I got to work creating rings for them. Creating a way to hang the pots on the pallet was the creative part. And have I mentioned I am cheap (thrifty)?!
I dug into my stash of supplies and found metal strapping. I am pretty sure this stuff is used to help support hanging pipes, but I was going to use it for pots full of herbs!
I grabbed my tin snips and started measuring out how much I needed to wrap around each pot.
Once I figured that part out I got to work screwing them into the pallet wood.
And just like that, they were all hung!
All of the pots were hung and we just needed to place the pallet garden into its new home!
The best part of all of this is to see how happy she was with the final product.
I can’t wait to see this little garden grow.
