DIY Mini Herb Garden with Pastel Chalkboard Painted Pots

I love the colors of spring and I also love making marinades to use when we grill outside, which this time of year is perfect for. And when I'm making marinades there is nothing better to have on hand than fresh herbs.

So I made chalkboard painted pots in some of my favorite spring colors to create a mini herb garden for my kitchen.

The first thing you will need to do is mix up some chalkboard paint, which is really easy.

How to make chalkboard paint with grout

Simply take about ⅛ cup of acrylic paint (craft paint) and mix it with a little bit less than a teaspoon of unsanded grout. You can find unsanded grout at the hardware store and there are smallish boxes of it, so you don't have to buy a big ol' bag.

Adding the grout makes the paint dry really fast, so you may want to mix just one color at a time.

Paint your pots with 2-3 coats of your chalkboard paint and let them dry completely

Once they are dry go to town on them with some chalk and then rub the chalk in with your fingers or the palm of your hand so that the entire surface has a layer of chalk dust on it. (This "seasons" your surface so that you are able to erase later.)

Then plant your herbs and write on each pot what is inside! And that is it!

I am going to love not buying herbs and having this cute little display! This would make a really cute hostess gift for the backyard BBQ's that are about to start happening don't you think?
