1. Clothespin Herb Planters
We, personally, love this one because of how easy it is. All you need a couple of wooden clothespins, some tuna fish cans, and a little bit of varnish and you’d be good to go. The rustic wooden planter would go well with any type of space and background and would especially pop out if you have neutral or pastel colored space.
