Making this DIY Herb Planter Decor was so much fun! While I am not one to have real plants that I actually have to water and tend to, you could absolutely use this for your actual herbs!
Even if you choose to grow your herbs or plants in these pots, this is a super affordable DIY project!

How to Make DIY Herb Planter Decor
Start this super easy and adorable DIY by staining your wooden pieces – the four Dollar Tree wood planks and two ruler paint sticks.
Pour the brown paint onto the wood planks and spray the paint with water. Use a wet wipe to spread the paint across the wood surfaces. Use a clean wet wipe to remove any excess paint.
Allow the paint to dry on all the wooden pieces. I like to use my heat gun to speed up the drying process. You can use a hairdryer in the low-cool setting if you don’t have a heat gun.
Once each piece is dry, you can secure them together. Lay the wooden planks side-by-side vertically and glue a paint stick horizontally across the top and bottom of the planks.
Next, lightly dry brush white paint over the stained wood. Keeping a light hand gets you an effortless distressed finish. If you apply too much white paint, lightly sand the surface.
You can set the distressed wood to the side for now, because now it’s time to paint the terra cotta pots.
I mixed black and white paint to get the perfect grey that I wanted. Then, I brushed the mixture onto the terra cotta pots. While the paint was wet, I used my hand to smear the bath powder onto the pots.
Bring it all together!
Next, place your alphabet stickers on the wood surface. Trace around each of the letters with your black marker, then remove each of the letter stickers.
Lightly color in the letters with the same black marker. Line up where you want the terra cotta pots to be, then drill a hole in the wood surface where the center of each pot will be.
Remove the jute from the wired jute cord. Wrap the wire around the terra cotta pot to shape it, then push the ends through the hole and secure it in place. Do this for each hole.
Fill each of the terra cotta pots with Spanish moss. Push your greenery of choice into the moss for each pot.
Then, separate the several strands of raffia and wrap them around each of the pots. Tie the raffia in a cute little bow!
Finishing up! Glue a piece of the wired jute cord at the top of the wood planks to create the hanger. Then, place your terra cotta pots in each of their spots on the front of the sign.
