DIY herb garden

Recycling and upcycling are great ways to give old materials a new life. Add this colourful DIY herb garden to your backyard so you always have access to your favourite fresh herbs!

In this step-by-step plan, Riek van de Bor (@RiekvandeBor on Instagram) shows you how to create your own herb garden out of an old wooden pallet! To make it durable and suitable for outside use, she painted the crate using Talens Art Creation Indoor & Outdoor paint. She also added some handy labels using Blackboard paint and chalk. Let’s get into it!
