Indoor Herb Garden DIY
To make this herb garden I used wood from a different project. I recently remodeled my square foot garden and had a lot of 1×2’s left over. Using this wood gave this project a “seasoned” look without having to do anything but condition the wood.
The frame of this wall hanging is very simple and can be done without power tools.
Supplies you’ll need for this indoor herb garden DIY
- Handsaw or miter saw
- 1 1/2″ nails
- Wood glue
- Paint or stain (depending on the finish you’re going for)
- Wood wax (for sealing the wood)
- Garden light
- Picture Frame Hangers
- Planters with hooks
- Free PNG file for labeling the planters
Make this herb garden by following these steps:
To build the frame you’ll want to cut your 1×2’s down to size. I cut the 1×2’s down to:
- 2 – 18″
- 2 – 6″

Start off by building a rectangle. Take the shorter pieces and attached them with wood glue and nails to make a rectangle
To get the distressed look, add some Vaseline to some areas of the frame before painting. There’s a video tutorial walking you through that here.
Then added a coat of white chalk paint and allowed that to dry for about an hour.
Once the paint was dry it was time to scrape off the paint and Vaseline.
This is by far the easiest way to get a chippy paint look. The paint doesn’t attach itself with the Vaseline. Do keep a few paper towels on hand to wipe off the paint.
Now that I have the frame distressed enough it’s time to hang. I attached picture frame hangers to the back and attached to the wall.
I bought these galvanized hanging planters from Michael’s and attached vinyl wording to the planters. You can download the copy below.
I used my Cricut cutter for the wording.
I did install an indoor grow light since this corner of the house doesn’t have any sunlight. I hung a 1×3 above this herb garden. This will allow my indoor herb garden to thrive inside.
I’m thrilled by how this turned out and it really shows that you don’t need to spend a lot or have a difficult design to create an indoor herb garden.
Here’s a look at what the grow lights look like when they’re on and off. Giving a few hours of light will give your herbs amazing benefits if there isn’t a window near by.
