Herb Garden with Chalkboard Labels- Sassy Sanctuary

Hello everyone!

Its so great to be back with another round of WYLTC!  But I have to admit, this month's theme kinda threw me.  You see, I have a large chalkboard on my broom cabinet in my kitchen, and I just recently finished a white board project. So another chalkboard wasn't really on my list.  So I figured the next best thing would be to do some kind of chalkboard label.  I have been wanting to do a window herb garden FOREVER, so that was it! But then I started browsing Pinterest and fell in love with all the great "faux chalkboard" graphics and printables that are so popular right now.  And ended up with faux chalkboard labels.  Hope that still counts!

Anyway, here is how it turned out.

I totally LOVE it!  Its my new favorite craft of all time.  And if it hadn't been for the chalkboard inspiration I doubt it would have ended up half as cute!

And it was also SUPER easy!

I found the unfinished crate at Joann's,  Its technically a CD rack, but turned on its back.

I painted it blue and then found some 3" wood tiles also at Joann's.  I modge podged the chalkboard print to those. (If you print using a laser printer your prints won't bleed, I let Office Max do my laser printing.)

Then hot glued the labels to the crate, added some potted herbs.  And done.

And I'm even going to share my chalkboard label if anyone wants to use them!

(Just click on the image to view it large, save it, and print it as an 8x10 and you'll have 3" labels.)

And it really does look cute in my window!

Now if I can just keep them alive.....

Thanks for reading!  Come back tomorrow for more chalkboard goodness!

This is such a great idea and I love the chalk board labels. We always seem to have herb pots lying around everywhere, but this looks amazing!!
