Herb gardens are the best way to have organic, pesticide-free herbs on hand. But if you’re not blessed with a backyard, you can still skip the farmer’s market and spend your Sunday sleeping in, thanks to this charming and compact herb garden pallet! It can be laid down flat, or propped upright against a wall if your living quarters are tight. Plus it adds a rustic cottage warmth to your décor! This project has the potential to get a little messy, so we recommend doing this one outdoors.
- Wooden shipping pallet
- Wood planks, 2 equaling the length of your pallet; 1 equaling the width
- Plywood, cut to the same length and width as the pallet
- 10 cm wood screws
- sanding block
- Wood stain + brush
- Weed cloth
- Staple gun
- Potted herbs of your choice
Step 6: Place the plywood over the weed cloth. Securely screw it in place with the drill: be sure to screw down the sides as well, not just the corners. Once that’s done, flip the pallet back to right side up.
This pallet garden will have you so excited to get cooking. It’s convenient, environmentally friendly, and not to mention pretty to boot! If you loved this DIY and are looking to make it yourself, make sure to show us and tag us on social at @BeMakeful!
