How to Make an Herb Garden from a Pallet

– Posted in: Crafts, Silhouette Crafts

Working with The Home Depot on the outdoor and gardening campaign has been fun, and for my last post I am going to be using those wonderful herbs I purchased last week on my shopping spree.

I have always wanted to make an herb garden, but with a small yard, 4 children, and 2 dogs, there is not much room left for an herb garden, or any garden for that matter.  That was an issue until I came upon the wonderful pallet garden on Pinterest a few weeks ago.

I seriously love this! I saw this on Pinterest and navigated my way to your website. I went out and go two pallets just to make this project with. I want to do two extensive herbs, and maybe even some tea leaves! Thank you for this project!!

That’s awesome! I can’t wait to see how they turn out, make sure to let me know. :-)

I am a little confused by the part with the jig and “pocket holes”. Can you please explain that with simpler terms or a diagram for someone who is not handy (yet)?

Hi Diana, a Kreg Jig is used to make the pocket holes. If you have never used a Kreg Jig before to make pocket holes, I would practice on a couple of scraps. That’s how I started when I first used a Kreg. You can find videos on YouTube on how to make pocket holes with a Kreg Jig, it would be easier than a diagram. :-) Hope that helps!

How do you get around the fact that stealing pallets is illegal? I am anxious to make a pallet garden, but where do I get a pallet legally?

I wouldn’t TRY to get around the fact that stealing pallets is illegal, I received my pallet when I had re-sod our back yard. If you can’t find anyone who would give you a pallet, you can always go online and order one. Hope that helps!

what size screws were used to put this together?

Jennifer April 29, 2014, 16:11

I used 2 1/2″ screws (Kreg brand)

MANY places have pallets that they give away….many many many many…especially at Tractor supply sales, 4 wheeler sales places…LOTS of places are HAPPY to give away pallets.. no need to even think about stealing or paying on internet

Great idea that would be excellent on our patio.

When I get back home, I’m going to try it.

Where did you get your Kreg? I have seen the infomercial and planned to order. Glad to know a “real person” has and uses this, and that it does what they claim. Love your herb pallet.

Thanks Melle! You can pick one up at your local Home Depot or Lowes, or you can order them online if they do not carry them. I was lucky and both of my local stores carry them, but my friend in Colorado has a local Home Depot that did not carry them. I would check first, and then just order online if they don’t have them :-)
