Aside from the hideous orange colored strainer I used as the planter, I really like this idea. I originally saw it in a BHG mag and clipped it for future reference. Well that day has come and my version comes with adorable little plant tags that I made.
Considering this is a first go-round and I was under time constraint I really enjoy the simplicity of these. I hope next time I can give them more thought, but they serve their purpose in this situation.
Unfortunately, these are for indoor use only at this point, until I figure out how to weatherproof them. And I will have do something much better for the back of them next time, but my son and I thought the bugs would look cute and natural (as natural as glitter bugs can be) amidst the herbs.
