I am kicking off the Mother’s Day edition of Craft Lightning with a herb garden design that you do not want to miss. This rustic wheel herb garden is something that any mom would love. Get the kids and create one outside of your home or make it in a large pot and carry it to mom! Either way, she will love the results in her garden this summer. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to check out the other 15 minute crafts for Mother’s Day at the bottom of this post.
First, we are going to make some quick clothespin herb markers. I really love adding markers to my herbs that will last all season. These will last basically forever because we are going to use a wood burning tool. Don’t worry! It is no intimidating!
Supplies to make the clothespin herb markers:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means you do not pay anymore but a portion of your purchase will go to support this site.
Start by writing the names of the herbs onto the clothespins with a pencil.
Use the wood burning tool to go over your letters. The wood burning tool is literally like using a hot pencil. Don’t be intimidated! It is easy to use and you will love the results.
Take apart the clothespins.
Use the stain to go over the wood on all sides. Wipe away any excess with a rag.
Allow to dry completely then put the clothespins back together.
Herb Garden Design: Rustic Wheel
To start your herb garden, add a rustic wheel to a pot or a flower bed. I used one that we had laying around our farm and actually gave it a quick coat of spray paint in green. That is completely optional however.
Plant a different herb in each of the segments of your wheel. This will keep them separated easily while still being in a small pot or a small area of your garden.
Clip the markers you made above onto the wheel in the appropriate place.
Give this great herb garden to your mom this Mother’s Day.
