I love to cook with fresh herbs, especially in curries and salads. However, I'm not very good at growing them. So I tend to cheat by buying the pots of growing herbs in the supermarket.
I have designed a clever and stylish way to store these herbs in my kitchen for easy access and to keep them fresher longer. It was all made from upcycled materials of an old pair of jeans, soda bottle and a bit of pallet wood.
Time: 1 HoursCost: $5Difficulty: Easy
These aren't the only denim planters I have made. I also made some very popular farmhouse tin cans ones which you can see here.
You can, of course, use the same herb planter to grow your own herbs in too, if that's what you prefer!
I also cut the belt loops of the jeans. One of these was stitched to the top of the jeans leg pouch.
I made labels for the denim herb holders by simply stamping the names of herbs onto an old piece of fabric. I used letter stamps you can buy here.
You might have noticed I'm from the UK and we call cilantro, coriander over here.
I used an old piece of pallet wood and some lovely hooks my sister had given me to make a holder for the pouches.
The potted herbs were simply placed inside the soda bottles in the pouches.
This double potting enables me to water them easily without getting drips everywhere but the excess water has somewhere to go. So the herbs last longer.
