Each cup received a coat of spray primer and a light sanding to the edges as I wanted the final product to have a distressed finish. Using the hand drill again, I then drilled a few holes into the bottom of each cup to help with water drainage.
For a colorful fun, whimsical look, each pot then received a final coat of spray paint. The colors used were Rustoleum Harbor Blue, Krylon Gloss Celery, Krylon Bright Idea, and Krylon Satin Ivory. Once dry the edges were sanded once again.
For markers, I took apart two wooden clothespins leaving me with four ‘stakes’. Each received a coat of ivory spray paint and the edges were sanded. Using some scrapbooking mini alphabet stamps, the names of each herb were stamped using black ink.
