“The following review is part of the Jo-Ann Fabric And Craft Stores® National Craft Month campaign. I received compensation for this review; however, this is my personal, honest opinion based on my experience.”
I am so jealous of people who are seeing signs of Spring already. There’s still snow on the ground here in NY so in order to get my Spring fix I started my first indoor herb garden. I was inspired by National Craft Month and the Spring trend with the color of the year, radiant orchid and trudged out into the snow to spray paint some ugly clay pots. Luckily, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store makes spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon and a spring crafting inspiration website. This simple indoor herb garden comes together easily and it makes the perfect table centerpiece or favor gift idea for a Garden Party.
Indoor Herb Garden
I just recently got the spray paint bug. I love how it quickly and efficiently transforms a surface. I used it last year in our Easy Planter Makeover with a gorgeous blue. This year I went with the color of the Spring season, Radiant Orchid. You would laugh your butt off if you saw me outside doing it though. Why you ask? Well, there’s still a foot of snow outside. Luckily, this wasn’t only comical, but makes clean up a cinch. I simply laid my clay pots on top of the frozen tundra and sprayed them.
I added chalkboard labels that are stickers so that I wouldn’t get confused with my herbs. I found Rosemary and Lime Thyme at my local garden center. Yep, it was open, but only because it also sells all sorts of delectable cheeses and fine cut meats. I even had the opportunity to grab a bite to eat while I was there so it was a nice afternoon all to myself, which are rare these days.
Once I got the herbs home and the planters had dried I transposed them into my planters. Since there’s still not a ton of sunlight yet in NY, I decided that the perfect place for the herbs was my dining room table. I placed them in my trustee planter that I have a tendency of using for the majority of my Spring projects.
They fit perfectly. The best part is that the pop of purple in my dining room now. It screams Spring and makes me so happy every time I walk into my dining room. They are just the perfect centerpiece. Plus, they would be the perfect Easter gift to give your guests after Easter Dinner.
I love the fact that these will transition easily into our herb garden outside. If you’re looking for some garden ideas, you might like our…
