How to make Chalkboard Planters - the perfect teacher gift!

Are you looking for an Inexpensive Teacher Gift for a great year!! Check out this adorable How to make Chalkboard Planters gift idea! You can include seeds and soil for or fill it with gummy worms for fun 🙂

How to make Chalkboard Planters


  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Outdoor Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Newspaper
  • Potting Soil
  • Packets of Seeds
  • Gummy Worms, Optional
  • Twine
  • Cardstock for Tags
  • Chalk to write names on the pots or Thank You on the pots


  • Paint the base of the pot with chalkboard paint.  Allow to dry.
  • Paint the top rim and base with an outdoor acrylic so it has a sealer already in it because you can’t use a spray sealer on chalkboard paint.
  • Allow to dry.
  • Fill with potting soil.
  • Use the base as a lid and tie with twine.
  • Add a note with card stock and add seeds.


  • $1.50 for the pot and saucer.
  • Can of chalk paint was $3.50.
  • The outdoor acrylic was $1.20 per color.
  • I had the potting soil on hand but it runs around $3.00.
  • I purchased seeds for only $.10 a pack (had 11 seeds in packet).

The grand total averaged out to be around $2.00 a gift!   This would make a really cute herb garden too!   I hope you enjoy this really cute DIY.
