Made this cutie recently.
I saw the original idea at Greg and Ashley's blog over at http://7thhouseontheleft.com/2012/03/diy-clothespin-herb-planters/#.VUdloPDpyoY
All I needed for my little project was some clothes pins, and empty tin can and the glue gun! I bought some clothes pins from the Dollar Tree and saved a can that chicken breast came in.
I began to glue clothes pins all the way around the tin can.
Now Ashley stained her clothes pins before gluing them on and painted her tin can. I decided to leave the clothes pins their natural color and did not paint the can. However, it would be really cute to paint coordinating colors that you might be using.
Here is what it looked like from the top.
Ashley had drilled holes in the bottom of her can and planted an herb in the can. I decided since I do not have a whole lot of light coming into my laundry room that silk greenery might be best for now. Cute, simple and cheap! Perfect for my little cabinet for my laundry room don't ya think?
This would be really cute with a candle in it as well.
Remember this little cabinet that I bought at a yard sale?
And remember when I told you that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater and I showed you this?
Both of these projects are completed! YES!
Stay Tuned! Will show you the finished project this week.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
