Plant Marker Ideas

These markers are made using the front of the seed packet and outdoor sealer - lots more ideas to use seed packet fronts here. I have been in my garden all week. I cleaned out my herb bed and all the markers I used last year are faded and I need some new longer lasting ideas. Here are a few ideas I found - each title is a lnk to the original post with instructions. ********************
This is from the Birds and Blooms site - put in plant markers in their search feature to pull up the instructions. Make your own marker on your computer Acyrlic Sleeves These are broken plates Made out of clayI love these engraved rocks Antique spoons with instructions Made out of vinyl blinds This website has several ideas - this pix is one of them Cute markers made from twigs This is from the Martha Stewart website - I like this one! Another website with pictures of engraved spoons In this post and pix are markers made from 3 different mediums

How cute (and simple and frugal) are the rock markers! Why don't I think up things like that? I really like the clay ones, too, but that looks like it's a bit more complicated. Thanks for the ideas!

Great ideas for plant markers!! So far all I have done are the window blinds -- not the prettiest but very effective.

Thanks for sharing a link to my post about using river rocks as plant markers! I actually used a stamp to write the letters, they're not engraved. Much easier! :-D
