Transformed :: Hanging Herb Garden

diy build your own herb garden indoor hanging easy simple step by step kitchen

Happy Thursday, everyone! Am I (Claire) the only one stunned by December’s arrival? With the holidays quickly approaching, the next few weeks will be devoted to totally prepping my house for the season… especially in the kitchen. One project on my to-do list, which I think would be fabulous to have completed in time for holiday entertaining, is a hanging herb garden. And since temps in Texas will be dropping in the next few weeks, I can’t imagine anything better than having a lush array of greens at arms-length. I’ve gathered some of my favorite herb garden designs and need your help to decide which one to recreate; leave a comment letting me know: which one would you like to see me DIY? Stay tuned for the big reveal in two weeks!

*Update: Click here to see the final product and DIY instructions from Claire!

    I live in the Rocky Mountains and really need an indoor herb garden. I LOVE the first picture with the jars, and that’s something I know I could do myself. They probably could use some pebbles in the bottom for better drainage (which would look cute too). Definitely going on my to do list, thank you!

  2. Chanel Dror says:

    I like the first one!!

  3. Maya says:

    What a refreshing solution to have your herbs growing upside down! Love it.

  4. erin says:

    great project idea! i like the first one!

  5. Jess says:

    #1 ! I want one for myself! 🙂

  6. The first one! Simple and beautiful!

  7. I like the first one best! Great post Claire!!

  8. Camille Styles says:

    I’m thinking #1…so many different ways you could present the jars!

  9. Alison says:

    First one, pretty please!!

  10. Jennifer says:

    I like #1 the best but I am very curiuos as to how you would do #2

  11. Claire Zinnecker says:

    Thanks for all the comments! Keep them coming! I’m excited to begin the project. Erin, I love that leather!!

  12. Desiree says:

    I would also love to see the first one.

  13. Brittany says:

    I vote on the first one, but I’d also be interested to see how to do the second one. It would be so fun in my kitchen!

  14. Lynn says:

    #1, absolutely! (my DH has mason jars from his moonshining days!)

  15. Sharon says:

    Looks like a general consensus for the first one! I love it and it doesn’t look too difficult. It would also be so cute to paint the name of the herb on each jar using frosted paint. I’ve been meaning to build a shelf in my kitchen for my indoor herb garden since I don’t have a window sill, but this is so much better! Sooo inspired right now… thank you! I love the third one too. The second one looks scary to me… I’d worry about the effects of gravity!

  16. I’ve pinned the mason jar one before and adore it! My husband likes it to, so this may have to become a reality…


  17. I like the 3rd one because it seems the most practical, even though all three are nice… Hanging ones might be odd. The wall ones are pretty cool too…

  18. Sara Gute says:

    I like #1.

  19. Robbie Lowry says:

    Any chance I could get the directions for pic 3? I’d love to do that for my climbing and bushy flowers. Love the ideas and thanks for posting.

  20. Renee says:

    I would LOVE directions for the one using the pallet. This is such a space saver and I have access to unused pallets. PLEASE post the directions. Thank you!!!!

  21. Joey says:

    I third the request for the instructions for # 3: the pallet! It looks so awesome!

  22. Heather says:

    I love the mason jars!!!! I want to do that in my home!!!!Thank you for the idea!

  23. Ashley says:

    How do you do that yourself? Where do you get the materials for the first one? or the 3rd one?

  24. steph says:

    hi , do you mind if I ask you a question ? .. do the herbs need drainage holes for the mason jars ? … and how long can they live in the jars for ? thanks so much, Steph.

  25. Janae says:

    Number 3 please!

  26. Arlene says:

    I love that idea since I can’t put anything on my window sill. The cat eats any plants I would have. What kind of lighting would I need? Thank you so much

  27. sj wright says:

    Wouldn’t the dirt fall out of the second one???? How is it done??

  28. Sure Thang says:

    herbs pots grow upside down!!! Its out there and I love it! Is there any way I can find out how its done

  29. Seth says:

    I love this idea. I’m going to give this a try and make a review on it at

    • Jenat says:

      Please let me know when u post the “how to” part for the 2nd picture. I’m eager to know it was done. Btw, I LOVE your link. I book marked it. 🙂

  30. Allison Horner says:

    How would you do the second one? I would love to get some of those jars!

  31. Kelsey says:

    Combine the first and third and attach your jars to a pallet! That’s what I did!
