Pinterest Inspired Mason Jar Herb Garden


I saw this herb garden and these jars on pinterest and added my own details to create a fun mason jar herb garden that I LOVE!

I gave each clean jar two coats of paint, waited until the next day, then sanded the words and various areas with sandpaper. I used a wet paper towel to gently clean each jar and when it was dry I spray painted on a clear coat. (I used what I had on hand, which was glossy. I think matte would be even better though!)

 I tied some twine around each jar leaving extra to tie on my letter tag.

 Luckily, I already had these adorable letter tags from Hobby Lobby.



 After they were labeled, I added soil and seeds.

 I filled the soil almost to the top before adding my seeds and a second layer of soil.

 I just love how cute they turned out to be!


I love them on my kitchen window seal! Now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that herbs will actually grow!
