I adore garden markers and DIY label ideas, but I don’t want to invest in expensive equipment or spend twenty hours putting them together. I love these easy DIY garden labels because they repurpose leftover items, use what’s on hand, or don’t require extra equipment like metal crimpers or something.
1. Rustic Garden Markers. These photos I took myself at Baker Creek Seeds farm in Missouri. I like the simplicity of them – simple 1×2 pieces of lumber cut to the needed length. They do the job, last for more than one season, and blend into the garden area instead of competing with the eye for attention.
2. Marble Stakes for Simple Jeweled Look. Similar to making Marble Magnets except with these stakes the half-glass marbles are put back to back. See the full tutorial at Craft Jr.
3. Laminated Save for Seed Tags. These simple laminated papers and twine tags make it easy to mark which plants in the garden you want to save for seed. By The Microgardener.
4. Stamped Clay Garden Markers. Stamping the name of the plant into the clay makes these customizable. Use cookie cutters to create a variety of shapes. From Say Yes to Hoboken.
5. Painted Rock Garden Markers. Not stakes, but to set on the ground at the end of the rows to mark the plants. See the patterns at Repeat Crafter Me.
