I love fresh herbs...who doesn't. What I don't love? Buying them from the grocery store. I decided this year to have my own personal herb garden. I started with some herbs outside, but I also wanted some inside. I was looking around my house for possible planters, when I saw my stock pile of mason jars...yes normal people use them for canning, but I am still a novice at the whole canning thing.
So I bought some of my favorite herb plants (sage, parsley, thyme) and potting soil. Then I took my mason jars and I spray painted them with my new favorite color blue ocean breeze first used in this little craft. It took several coats to get the coverage I wanted. You will want to make sure to only spray paint the outside since you are planting food inside.
After the paint had dried I put some soil in each jar and then transplanted the herbs. Then I stood back and smiled at my cute little Mason Jar Garden.
These would make lovely gifts. Just pop a label marking which herb is in each jar and tie a bow on it. Anyone would LOVE this present.
