Milk does your body good, but you might not know that milk carton crafts can help the environment, too. Create Milk Carton Herb Pots to fancy up your garden and foster positive eating habits. DIY garden crafts don't have to be fancy or over-the-top. Use recycled materials and other easy-to-find supplies to create your own quick and easy DIY garden crafts. You'll want to spend all of your time outside with your homegrown herbs once you've finished this project.

Primary Technique: General Crafts

Occasion/Theme: Spring



  • 2 liter (quart) milk or juice cartons
  • Ruler
  • Pencil or pen
  • Sharp scissors
  • White primer spray paint
  • Black chalkboard spray paint
  • Chalk



  1. Wash and rinse milk and/or juice cartons and let dry.
  2. Measure and cut cartons to desired height.

  3. Spray paint primer on outside and inside of carton. Let dry and repeat procedure to add another coat. Let dry.
  4. Spray paint two coats of black chalkboard paint on the outside and inside. Let dry between each coat.



  1. This is what I think is the fun part of making milk carton turned into chalkboard paint herb pots! Using white chalk I just wrote the name of the herb on the outside. Since most of the herb names consisted of two words I wrote one word on one side and the other word on the opposite side.
