Pallet Herb Garden Planter

I love the rustic look and feel of this pallet herb garden. If you have a back patio, fence or even a brick wall that you would like to spice up, this herb garden does the trick. One bit of advice on this project is to try to start with clean pallets – don’t choose pallets that have rusty nails sticking out etc. The time you spend searching out clean pallets will be well worth it!

Coffee Mug Herb Collection

If you are like me, you have a ton of old coffee mugs sitting around. If not, you can acquire some pretty cheaply at your local thrift store or a yard sale. Coffee mugs make a great planter for herbs, the more whimsical the better. Just be sure that you put some pebbles in the bottom of the mug for drainage.
