Fresh herbs in the kitchen are a great thing to have on hand: They taste super, are healthy and look good on the plate as well as on the window sill — provided they have a chic home in an attractive pot. And that’s exactly what we’re after with this DIY upcycling project! Using the chic d-c-fix® Sage adhesive foil and the d-c-fix® chalkboard foil, conventional cans are converted into great pots for your fresh kitchen herbs. For even more eye-catching details, write the names of the herbs on the labels made of chalkboard foil, add your favorite sayings or mantras, or decorate them with small drawings!
You will need…
Remove the paper labels from the cans and clean the cans thoroughly.
Now determine the circumference of the cans and draw the dimensions with an addition of approx. 1 cm to the circumference on the backing paper of the Sage foil.
Then cut out the rectangles.
To apply the foil, remove the backing paper to a certain extent, carefully place the foil on the can and then adhere it all around. Finally, use the doctor blade to firmly apply the foil.
As a decorative finish, cut out small rectangles or other shapes of your choice from the chalkboard foil and place them on your new herb cans.
Finally, fill the cans with potting soil and plant your herb seedlings.
On the chalkboard foil, you can add the herb names or other messages using either the enclosed chalk or a chalk pen. The planted herb cans are also a fine hostess gift or a cool alternative to a classic birthday flower bouquet.
