We used Moonlight Chalky Paint to brighten up the make and lined the inside of each partition using a black bin liner as a cheaper alternative to ground liners. Simply pot your favourite herbs and decorate with your chosen thickers.

This divider box is perfect for potting 6 small individual flowers. Apply your wood sealer and leave to dry for a few hours. Line each holder with a black bin liner and pop in your chosen flowers. You can remove the middle of the lid like a photo frame so we chose a chalkboard design to display the word ‘grow’!

Metal buckets are a mess-free solution to planting herbs and small plants indoors. Simply paint in a colour or design of your choice (you may need to prime first, depending on the paint!) and place your chosen plant inside, without removing it from its original pot. You can stamp the name of the plant so you remember what it is!
Terracotta pots look great in almost any garden, but you can also decorate and paint them. Draw your design onto the pots using pencil and paint straight onto the pot. Any pencil not covered up by the pot can be easily rubbed out.

Spread artificial moss and small flowers to the back of a box frame, concentrating them at the bottom and spreading them out further up. Placing the frame on top of your design will secure everything in place, so there’s no need for glue! To finish, you can write onto the top of the glass with glass pen or paint, add letter stickers or create a design using die-cut shapes.
