There are a variety of herbs that you can use in your herb garden depending on your cooking style. This Compound Butter has Italian Parsley, Chives, and Thyme in it, but you can easily substitute any herb you like.

  • Mason Jars – we used wide mouth pint size and left the rings on – the wide mouth worked well and made it easy to get the herbs planted
  • Herbs – you can find herb plants at most grocery stores in the produce section or at your local garden center, or you can also try your green thumb and plant seeds and watch them grow
  • Stones for drainage
  • Potting Soil
  • Decorations – we used burlap ribbon and buffalo plaid flannel on some of the jars
  • Tags and strings – to add the name of the herbs

Decorating Mason Jar for Herbs

Planting Mason Jar Herbs

Mason Jar Herb Garden

  1. Add burlap ribbon around the mason jar, securing with hot glue
  2. When the buffalo plaid flannel strip is tied, you can see the lace on the ribbon. So I added a small strip of fabric to cover it. This step is optional.
  3. Wrap the strip of buffalo plaid fabric around the mason jar and tie a knot
  4. Add a couple handfuls of stones to the mason jar
  5. Plant the herb with potting soil
  6. Then write the name of the herb on the tag
