Materials:small wooden crate, newspaper, wooden letters (that spell out the word of your choice), glue, paint, three or so plastic containers, soil, seeds
Step One: Cover the small wooden crate (I found mine at Michael’s craft store) with newspaper. You can also use magazine or colored paper or simply paint the crate, but I went with the vintage newspaper feel.
Step Two: Paint the wooden letters (again, Michael’s craft store) in a color that goes with the crate covering and, once they dry, arrange and glue them on the front. I opted to go with “Home,” but feel free to choose something else, such as a family name or kitchen-themed word such as, “Cook,” “Herbs” or “Bon Appetite.”
Step Three:Fill the plastic containers, which you can find at the Dollar Store or any craft store and should be about the same height as the crate opening, with soil and plant the seeds, one kind per one container.
Step Four: Mark the containers with permanent marker or herb markers so you can remember which seeds are growing in which container. Place on the windowsill in your kitchen, water and enjoy your fresh, flavorful herbs once they bloom.
