Warmer weather is here, and one of the things that means for me to work in the garden is. This year I'm going to create a mini-garden near my apartment, a terrace, and of course, I need tags for the labeling of the various plants.
When I saw this post from The Ordinary garden, I was inspired to make my own share of the garden! I created a free printable so that you can join in the fun. Here is how I garden, this spring-markers.
DIY garden shares
printer (laserjet preferred)
presentation paper – 180 gsm min or white carton, on the
Mod hodgepodge Outdoor
Mason jar lids – one for each marker
2-inch circle punch
Power-punch or hole punch is strong enough, printed a hole in a thin metal
Print your free garden marker printed on thick paper. Cut it into strips, and use the 2-inch hole punch to punch the label of your choice directly within the lines.
place a medium layer of Outdoor Mod smorgasbord on the Mason jar lids with your brush.
Press the label down in the Mod-hodgepodge with the fingers. Smooth and make sure to wipe the excess from the sides. Let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes.
Give your labels a top coat of Mod-smorgasbord and let it dry. Then give at least two further layers. If Mod smorgasbord of leaks on the metal area to the left on the Mason jar lids, that is fine – it dries clear.
Use the power-punch or hole punch to make a small hole at the top of your plant and label.
TIP #1: If you don't have a punch, you can also use a hammer and nail to the hole! It is not as clean as with a blow, but it will work just fine. So make sure to place a Board under the lid, before you go punch the hole so that the nail something.
The plant picks that I had bought wire already at the top, so I used this to wrap through the hole, you some tips and attach the lid to the stick.
TIP #2: use a small wooden dowel rods and thin jewelry wire, to the same effect as above!
I love my garden stakes! I have purchased plants and can't wait to use them in the ground as a Marker. They are so fun for spring!
