Happy first day of spring, y’all! We’re getting ready to start our spring garden over here, and it’s always nice to know what you planted where, isn’t it? DIY plant markers to the rescue!
If you need them, I shared instructions for making these wine cork plant markers over at Eat Drink Better, and you can get them here, too!
DIY Plant Markers
- A used wine cork
- A bamboo skewer
- A permanent marker
- A plant to label
1. Take a good look at that cork, and you’ll see that one of the small ends has a hole in it from where the wine key went in.
2. Insert the sharp end of your bamboo skewer into that hole. Hold it in your fist, and ever-so-gently ease it in until it feels nice and sturdy. Don’t push too hard – your cork will split or your skewer will break.
3. Use your marker to write the name of your plant on the cork.
4. You’re ready to stake! Put the skewer into the garden, pushing it deep into the dirt, so it stands up when you let go.
