How to Make an Herb Crate for Mother's Day

A special project for my Mother...



I love hydrangeas, so does my Mom. Instead of just a plant I wanted to make her a special planter too.

I purchased this box at the thrift store, it had a lot of potential. I especially loved the black iron handle.



I think of the thrift store first because I know I will find something that I can make into a one of a kind piece, save money, and at the same time, save it from a landfill.

I painted this box Old White with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
then I stenciled on a stencil that a friend sent to me just because she is nice.




She sent me 3 stencils... Sage, Thyme and Parsley. Stop by and see her awesome rustic herb crates.



I hope to put all the stencils to a good use soon.



I didn't use the whole stencil this time, I thought the Scarborough Seed Company part was perfect for this project.




As you can see this project makes a great planter for the hydrangea and a perfect gift for the perfect Mother.


Happy Mother's Day!

  1. That looks wonderful, Susan! It was such a non-descript looking box before and you turned it into something your Mom can use every day. Love the stencil!

    Happy Mother's Day!
