Garden DIY Herb Markers

We love this project because it’s an excuse to buy more wine! Just save your corks to use as Garden DIY Herb Markers.

We love this simple project because it’s an excuse to buy more wine! Just save your corks to use as plant markers. Write the name of the plant on the cork with a permanent marker, then stick it on a stake or bamboo skewer. If you don’t have wine corks, you can buy some at a craft store. This is one of the easiest ways we’ve seen to make plant markers. They’re pretty darn cute, too!

Materials:

  • Wine corks (If you don’t have wine corks, you can buy some at a craft store.)

  • Stake or bamboo skewer.

    I LOVED this idea, but was afraid my wooden skewers wouldn’t weather well so I used green floral stems purchase from a local craft store. I twisted two stems together, then used poked small holes into the corks, inserted the twisted wire an they came out great! They look great in my herb pots and the wire holds up better in the moist soil.

    Hello Terry,I found your name when Googling birding sites in Copenhagen. I’m an Australian bierdr who’s visiting Copenhagen for a week in Easter 2013 with my wife and young son. I was wanting to ask you where I can do some good birding in and around Copenhagen with limited time. I’d love to see a Black Woodpecker. Could you recommend some spots for interesting birds? Top Japanese Robin photo, BTW! Thanks for your time, Mr Lorne JohnsonBundanoon NSWAustralia

    I love this idea, and have lots of corks I have been saving for a long time, waiting for the right idea to use them. And I have been looking for cute ideas for plant markers to use in my flower beds outside. Will the corks survive as markers outdoors?

Been outside in sweatshirt!

Been outdoors refilling suet feeders and bird feeders!  Just a sweatshirt on and in low 60's, but windy.  Sun and clouds off and on.  Will take it anytime…
