Is Dad a cook? Gardener? Loves to get his hands dirty? How about a personalized herb garden that can be decorated over and over? I like this because I can write what is growing on the outside of the can because the tags always get lost.
This craft is a lot of fun and can be a fun gift from the kids under $25! I was given all of the supplies for it from our local Orchard Supply Hardware store(OSH) and the kids were off.
- Empty paint cans ($5.50)
- Chalkboard Spray paint ($5.99)
- Herbs (under $5)
- Soil ($5.99)
- Chalk ($1)
- Although, I think chalkboard markers would work better ($12)
- Paper to cover painting surface
- Power drill or hammer and Nail
Lay the paper down to prepare to paint the cans.
Drill 3-5 holes into the bottom of the can. If you do not have a drill, take a hammer and nail to make drainage holes. If the holes are too big like mine, line the bottom with pebbles to keep the dirt in.
Spray 3 coats of chalkboard paint onto the outside of the cans and let dry thoroughly(usually about 20 minutes in the sun).
Have you children decorate the outside of the can with chalk or write the name of the herb you plan to plant.
Fill the can 1/2 way with soil and place your plant inside and fill the rest to the top.
The kids can put a bow on it and it is done!
