  1. Using a Honey Stain by Minwax (LINK), I stained a small piece of craft wood from Michaels.  I couldn't find it on their site, but this one (LINK) is great because it already has the hanger attached.
  2. I measured out the spots I wanted the pegs to go, then using tacky glue (LINK), glued on the stained wood pegs (LINK)
  3. Finally I used eye hooks (LINK) to attach a piece of twine for hanging.

If you aren't interested in making your own, I found this one online from Wayfair (LINK) which would be great for drying your herbs!

I cut two bunches of basil and one of mint to hang alongside a bunch of dried lavender I had from a craft project.

I love that it's useful and also looks cute!

I made a second one for my daughters room and she uses it to hang her necklaces!  Another option for an easy organizational solution!
