I'm all for an elaborate DIY that takes all day but sometimes you just want the easy way out. Well here it is people. An indoor garden that does the trick and can easily be completed in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee. For real!
My supermarket had these little herb plants on sale for $2 each and I happened to have both the pots and the tension rod hanging around so I put this up and I was done. (If you want to make your own version, you will need a tension rod and these Ikea utensil holders.) I just need to pick up one more pot to hang my rosemary and I'll feel like Ina Garten!
When these herbs die (which they surely will as I kill most plants), I'll head out to my slightly more elaborate DIY outdoor hanging planter and bring in a few succulents. For Christmas I might replace them with those tiny little evergreens that look adorable with tiny lights. The options are endless!
Should you be in the mood for something more elaborate, I DIY'd this gift wrap organizer with lots of Ikea doodads a while back.
