All you need for these plant markers are packages of white plastic cooking spoons and packages of baby spoons and Sharpie markers. That's it!
Write a list of all the plants you want to identify and favorite garden sayings. I used the plainer baby spoons for the actual plant markers and the white spoons for the sayings. Unpack all the spoons. I used a black Sharpie for the baby spoons since they were a bit darker in color. I used the colorful Sharpies for the sayings. Once I had all my materials laid out, I started writing.
I don't have fantastic penmanship when it comes to Sharpies on rounded surfaces. However, these are just for me and my own fun, so I am happy with how colorful they are!
|For these plant markers, bury the bowl part of the spoon.|
|For these markers, insert the handle of the spoon into the soil.|
The sayings I chose were:
In the garden my soul is sunshine.
Now entering the SEEDY part of town.
Veggies in Training
MOJITO. um...I mean MINT.
Once Upon a Thyme
Please. Water Me.
I don't remember planting this.
I have $4 invested in the spoons and about $8 in the Sharpies, but I use the Sharpies for a lot of other projects, too. So a total of $12, with a lot of Sharpie left over!
Be creative! Enjoy the process. Don't be perfect, enjoy the imperfections! Happy Gardening!
