Creative Garden Labels

All that gardening got my creative juices flowing. I'm in need of labels for my planters so I can remember what I planted in which box. If you have followed me for a while now you know I like to use what I already have laying around. After brain storming I grabbed my water colors, brushes, contact paper and clothes pins.

I painted a little picture of each veggies/fruit and wrote the name in black.  Note: I'm no artist but they are just fine for my garden.


Next I just cut them out and sandwiched them in between clear contact paper to protect them from the elements.


Finished product.
They turned out pretty cute. Cost $0.00! I just used what I already had.

These are great! I better get with making a few before I forget what is where -- I have a plan coming up in my garden that I think is a peony -- I guess now I have to wait for it to bloom then I will know for sure and can make a proper label for next time... came to visit via tea rose home..

This is so cute! I've been trying to get the metal spoon markers to work, but had more trouble than I should and I'm about to quit and go with your idea, which looks gorgeous! : )
