Today I have the easiest DIY plant markers you are ever going to attempt to make! Placed in pots of herbs, they make fantastic little gifts for Easter, Mothers’ Day, or simply as a hostess gift.
You can purchase tiny pots of herbs and either put them in special clay pots such as I did here, or wrap the original pot in a bit of newspaper tied with a piece of string (it all depends on how much you want to spend.)It’s the addition of the handmade plant markers that really makes this gift special. These are so inexpensive they’re practically disposable!
DIY Plant Markers for Herb Pots
What you need:
- stamps, ink
- Cut strips of paper approximately the same size as the clothespin. You can use scrapbook paper, newsprint, or vintage book pages. I used some old music sheets I found at a garage sale. The strips do not have to be cut perfectly; we’ll take care of the edges later.
- Using white glue, glue a strip to each side of the clothespin making sure to get right to the edges. Let dry completely.
- Using sandpaper, sand away the edges for a distressed but clean edge.
Use alphabet stamps and scrapbooking ink to add the names of the herbs to little brown paper flags, clip them to the clothespins, and voila!
Thanks for being here!
