Easy to make plant markers



  • wood pieces ( I bought these at Wal Mart. They come in packs of 5 or 6 for about a dollar.)
  • square dowels  (They come in a pack of 10 at Wal Mart for a couple dollars.)
  • paint and stencils
  • staple gun
  • wood sealer

This project is very quick and easy to make.  I made these markers for my herbs and I liked them so much that I think I will make more for my vegetable garden just for fun.  This would be a fun project to do with your kids.

Step 1.  Mark the wood where you want to make your cuts.


Step 2.

Cut along your lines and smooth edges with sandpaper.


Step 3.

Put what you want on your markers using craft paint and stencils.


Step 4.

Apply several coats of wood sealer to the marker, especially on the square dowel.   This will protect it from the moisture in the soil.


About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
