Make Your Own Plant Markers! - A Tried & True Project It’s starting to warm up over here and instantly my thoughts turn to getting my hands in the dirt! Since our frost period lasts for another week or so, I’m playing it safe and not actually planting anything outside yet but that doesn’t mean I can’t prep my garden in other ways, right? Here’s a quick tutorial that I originally posted on Crafts Unleashed on how to make your own plant markers with just a few craft supplies. Bonus points because they’re reusable year after year!

Make Your Own Plant Markers! - Ready to go! 5. Fill in the name of your plant with a White Chalk Marker and it will be somewhat water resistant to the small drops when you water but will wipe off completely with a sponge and some elbow grease. You could also use a White Permanent Marker if you tend to have the same plants year after year and don’t need the plant markers to be reusable. Happy gardening!
