Growing Herbs Indoors


Indoor Herb Garden


Easy DIY Rustic Herb Planters

These rustic herb planters are so adorable! I absolutely love what Mary from Boots and Hooves Homestead has done here! I definitely want these planters sitting in my windowsill!

Not only are they cute, but they are very easy to make. I don’t know about you, but having four kids, I love an adorable yet easy project;)

Culinary Herb Garden Crafts – Personalized Pots

This herb garden craft is another great idea! Something easy to do, yet cute and creative.

I also love how this post suggests making these and giving them as gifts. What a great idea! I think that this would make a great Christmas gift for someone. I mean who wouldn’t love to have the ability to grow fresh herbs during the cold winter months?!

Vintage Enamelware Chamber Pot Herb Garden

How creative is this?! I love the idea of taking an antique and putting it to use instead of just sitting it on a shelf to collect dust. This allows you to still display it while using it as well.

This could also be done with other vintage containers I’d imagine.

I also love how this chamber pot is large enough to accommodate multiple herbs. Plant several of the best indoor herbs in this!

A Kitchen Window Herb Garden: Upcycled Tea Cups

As a collector of teapots, I love this idea! I need to do this and sit a couple of tea pots around them! How cute would that be?! Or do the same thing in a tea pot instead of a cup!

This is also a great way to use something that you might already have on hand! Again, like the chamber pot herb garden, this allows you to take an item that usually sits on a shelf collecting dust and put it to use! Why not make your antiques look great while serving a purpose?!

Upcycled Ikea Box Herb Planters

Another great idea that uses something that you already have on hand!

These directions also show you how to use stenciling and a really cool masking tape technique as well. Definitely check this out, you are going to want to try it!

Japanese Moss Ball Planters

Ok, I think this is absolutely awesome! I have never seen this before. ( Don’t judge me if it’s everywhere and everyone is doing it, it’s new to me;)

I am seriously going to do this! I’m thinking it would be great to hang in the window over my desk. I would love to be able to look at this everytime I sit down to write a new post:)

One of the things that I love about it, is how natural it looks. No pot, no man made contraptions, just all natural! It looks like your plants are growing inside another plant. So cool!

Inside Herb Garden

Farmhouse Decor Herb Planter

Who doesn’t love to browse Amazon;) While browsing through their long list of herb planters I came across this adorable farmhouse decor herb planter!

Use it to plant three different herbs, each in their own adorable little pot. I visualize this sitting on a windowsill or as a centerpiece for a dining room table (as long as the spot it’s in gets sufficient light). Or sit it on a kitchen counter. It would look good anywhere really:)

And those are seven of the best indoor herb garden ideas! Which ones are your favorites? I honestly can’t decide and I think that we should try them all;) What do you think?

Have you used any of these ideas before? Do you have any additional indoor herb garden ideas? I would love to hear them!
