Guess what?!? I have a HUGE announcement today and I’m SO excited!
NEXT SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16TH, I’LL BE JOINING MICHAELS AND HOMETALK FOR AN IN-STORE PINTEREST PARTY AND YOU ARE INVITED!
Not local? No problem. There are 52 other stores/bloggers participating. Find one near you here.
Michael’s has put together some fabulous projects for us to make. Seriously, I spent almost 2 hours looking through everything in the store! Today, I’m giving you a peek at one of the projects that I made and one that you can make too!
These Chalkboard Herb Pots are not only super trendy but are really inexpensive to make and easy.
We cook a lot in my family and my husband has been asking for a small herb garden for a long time. Well, I finally did it!
I actually learned a lot about herbs during this project. Like the ones I potted are actually outdoor herbs and I have to wait for indoor ones to come in later this season. So sadly, my pots will have to be moved outside once the temps warm up.
But aren’t they just so cute?
All of my supplies were purchased on one of the end caps at Michaels (except for the herbs, of course).
Here’s what you need:
– 3 Terracotta Pots
– 3 saucers
– White Multi-Surface Paint
– Foam Brush
– Oval Chalkboard Labels
– 100 Grit Sand Paper
– Birch Rounds (optional)
I started by painting the pots with the white paint. They needed a solid two coats! But thankfully the paint dries fast.
Then, I wrote out my chalkboard labels and adhered them to the pots.
I put the labels onto the pots and lightly distressed the edges for a more rustic vintage look.
Lastly, I potted chives, parsley and oregano and placed them on birch rounds for fun. I kind of fell in love with Michaels huge birch section and I HAD to buy something!
I’ve got a few other projects up my sleeve too! Here are some other ideas from Michaels. I can’t wait to see YOUR spin on them at the party!

I love the herb pots! I’m a bit of a home gardener, but I don’t think I’ll be able to have my garden this year due to spacing issues. These are perfect for me to still get a little bit of gardening in. Thanks for sharing! Pinned! ~Lisa
These are so cute!
And reminds me of spring…I’m ready for all this snow & cold weather to go away!

I love this! These would be perfect in my kitchen with all of my kitchen chalkboard art. Super cute! Thanks for sharing :)
just caught this on lil luna! LOVE it! I snagged that little birch round you have your pot sitting on from Michael’s the other day for a project :)
such a fun idea Taryn! I need to paint some pots for my kitchen
Love these. I just painted some pots myself. They were going to be for herbs, but then I heard the paint can leech toxins into the soil, so I switched up to succulents. I also sealed mine with a coat of Mod Podge, but now I’m wondering whether that was necessary. How did you get on with yours Taryn?
