Herb Drying Rack ~ Scrap Wood

You can make simple drying racks for your herbs.  Here we took a scrap piece of wood and painted it with a coat of white paint.  After the paint dried, a layer of crackle medium was applied, and also dried.  Then the green paint was applied and dried.  The crackle medium, allowed the white to show through, and appear as aged paint.  Decoration was applied with paint pens, and also dried.

The clothespins (wooden) were painted first and allowed to dry.  Then they were glued to the board with a strong holding glue.

With a drill you can drill top holes to hand screw eye screws into the top.  Tie on your scrap twine and you have a nice sized drying rack for your herbs.

The paints were not purchased for this project.  The paints that were used, were scrap bottles leftover from other projects.
