From the blogger: "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."

Estimated Cost$21-$30

Time to CompleteIn an evening


Materials List

  • Wood clothespins
  • Wood burning tool
  • Wood stain (I love these cloths for ease of use)
  • Pencil


DIY Project Instructions

  1. Start by writing the names of the herbs onto the clothespins with a pencil.

  2. 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.

  3. Take apart the clothespins.

  4. Use the stain to go over the wood on all sides. Wipe away any excess with a rag.

  5. Allow to dry completely then put the clothespins back together.

  6. To start your herb garden, add a rustic wheel to a pot or a flower bed. You can give it a quick coat of spray paint in green. That is completely optional however.

  7. 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.

  8. Clip the markers you made above onto the wheel in the appropriate place.

  9. Give this great herb garden to your mom this Mother’s Day.
