Ginger Snap Crafts: The Home Depot Project Sneak Peek {DIY Herb Garden} #DigIn

The Home Depot Project Sneak Peek {DIY Herb Garden} #DigIn

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Home Depot. I am thrilled to be working with The Home Depot this spring to improve our home & garden. #DigIn #ad

A few weeks ago I told you how excited I was to be working with The Home Depot this spring to tackle one of our outdoor garden projects, and today I’m even more excited to tell you a little bit more about our project & let you have a little sneak peek into our progress so far! Our family is is so excited to be tackling a DIY Herb Garden as a family. The Home Depot is the go to place to find everything you need to turn your home improvement project ideas into reality. They have the most innovative home improvement products available to help you get your projects done. I am so happy to have their help to get this project done! Yay! :)

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing the step by step on how we are making our own DIY Herb Garden. I’d love for you to follow along, and I would be thrilled if you made one as well. :)

The first thing I did was look for a little bit of DIY inspiration. A good starting place was The Home Depot blog, The Apron Blog. I found this great DIY space saving Herb Garden on their blog. I loved how it was vertical & didn’t take up much space. I knew I wanted ours to have similar characteristics. I love how they used those paint sticks as labels for all the herbs, too. So smart! ;) (You can also find tons of ideas on The Home Depot Garden Club Board on Pinterest.)

As I was researching & looking at different herb gardens I pinned all the ideas I found to My Herb Garden Idea Pinterest board. You can check that out here or by clicking the picture below.

After looking at all these fabulous ideas I kind of had an idea of what I wanted in my head. ha! I knew I wanted something vertical, & I wanted something with 5 rows or containers. I have 5 kiddos so I wanted each kid to have their own group of herbs that they are responsible for. So we headed to The Home Depot to gather some supplies for our DIY Herb Garden.

I looked at tons of containers, flower pots, window boxes & troughs looking for just what I wanted. :) The Home Depot had so many fun options to chose from. I kept coming back to some cedar window boxes (on the bottom right above), & I thought we could build a frame & attach them somehow into a vertical herb garden.  My hubby was with me, and he had other ideas! ;) Since we were at The Home Depot with everything a DIYer could want why not just make our own!?!! So we grabbed some cedar boards & wood screws.

We also grabbed some stain, potting soil, liquid fertilizer & of course, herbs. :) Look at this huge selection of herbs at The Home Depot (below)! Wowzers! I think I got at least one of each kind. They smelled so good! :)

Here’s a little sneak peek of our new DIY Herb Garden.  I’m so excited! It turned out even better than I had envisioned! :) It’s about 5 feet tall with 5 troughs (one for each kiddo). This week we’ll be working on sanding & staining it. Then the kiddos will be ready to plant their herbs. I’ll keep you updated on our progress, and I will have a full tutorial so you can make one, too! I’m also working a a vlog to share with you! So that should be fun! :)

This weekend our family will all be attending a Free Kids Workshop at The Home Depot. These fun & informative workshops are held on the first Saturday of each month from 9:00 am until 12 pm for kiddos age 5-12 at all The Home Depot stores. Each month they have a different project for the kiddos to complete & take home.  The even get their own The Home Depot orange apron, a commemorative pin & certificate to take home with them! Yay! This month’s project is making your own herb garden.  What perfect timing! ;) I’ll be sharing our experience at the Free Kids Workshop next week on the blog. My kiddos were so excited when I told them we were going! They LOVE going to The Home Depot. (I think my 3 year old is more excited about the car shopping carts though! ha!) So if you live near a The Home Depot I hope you’ll join us THIS Saturday!
