I wanted to create an easy and inexpensive herb garden so I used old paint cans, spray paint, rope, dock cleats and a couple pallet boards to create this DIY herb garden.

I drilled holes in the sides, inserted a piece of rope and tied the ends on the inside.

I used painters tape and sprayed the cans in a diagonal pattern to match our deck decor.

Once the paint was dry and the ropes were attached we planted our herbs.

The cleats were attached to pallet boards mounted directly to the siding of our house. Then we planted our favorite herbs for cooking!

We even filled them with mums for the fall once the herbs were gone! What do you guys think?

    Beautiful AND it'll keep my herbs out of the reach of all the veggie-lovin' critters that have thus far prevented me from growing herbs!
