Making a Mark

Popsicle sticks have always reminded me of arts & crafts and glue-covered fingers. But now I look at them and think "plant markers."  To make these I bought a bag of wooden sticks (the tongue-depressor size), carefully cut the bottoms into points and painted them with chalkboard paint. Done!  Or so I thought... I took it one step further and used rubber stamps & a white ink pad to label the plants I'm growing this season.

**Bundled up, the leftover markers make a great little gift for my fellow city gardeners.


  1. Great idea!!!!!! Love the bundles! Such an original gift!

  2. Or for your fellow NJ country (or suburb) gardeners. :)
