So I’ve been thinking about making some cute herb pot planters for my fresh herbs for some time now. Well, I ended up making these really cute herb pot planters with painted chalkboard labels!
Everyone who knows me knows I’m a perfectionist. I try not to be, but I know it’s true! I also know I drive my husband crazy with my perfectionist ways, but really I can’t help it (please say it’s not only me?)
To be honest this project didn’t really go as planned! I had imagined that this would be a pretty straight forward easy DIY project (It looked really simple when I saw a tutorial on youtube.. doesn’t it always look easy when someone else does it?!)
The problem was with the masking tape, it really messed up all my supposed to be straight edges! But to be honest, when I got over my first initial frustration over the not so straight chalk paint edges, I ended up putting my herbs in the pots and wrote on the labels.
And you know what! I kinda ended up liking my new herb pot planters! They’re not perfect, but the rough and unstraight edges give them a little charm of their own! So I will definitely be keeping my ” Not so perfect” herb pot planters just the way they are <3
Make herb pot planters with chalkboard labels
What you’ll need:
How to make it:
Start with measuring how big you want your labels to be.
Then you’ll want to attach the masking tape around the edges of where you want to paint your label.
Then it’s just to paint inside the square you’ve made with the masking tape.
Let it dry, and paint one more layer
Let the paint dry completely, and then peel off the masking tape.
Hopefully, you’ll now have a nice square chalkboard label, if not… you’ll hopefully get used to it! 😉
For my next chalkboard label project, I’ll definitely be trying out these chalkboard sticker labels. Just peel them off, and stick them on anything you like! Would probably be really cute on any type on glass jars, mason jars, and storage boxes. And guaranteed pretty edges, gotta love that 😉
