{Wine Cork Garden Markers}

I’ve got a super easy and super fast craft for all of you today.  I emphasize the super fast part as I’m sharing this craft as part of 30 Minute Crafts & The Country Chic Cottage‘s

CRAFT LIGHTNING WEEK!

Wine Cork Herb Markers @ WTYFGH

I noticed last year when planting my garden that my herbs just didn’t seem to do too well outside.  Most of them got overtaken by some pretty crazy zuchinni {that stuff seriously grows like a weed} or they died because I think it was just a bit too hot for them.

This year, I decided on a few favorite herbs, bought myself a cute planter, and decided that they would be mostly indoor herbs.  I put them outside when the sun is shining to give them some natural light, otherwise, they stay in my kitchen.  Once they start really growing {I planted them as seeds}, I won’t have to leave the kitchen while cooking to add some fresh herbs to my meals.

I wanted to make sure to have some cute plant markers, so I knew which was which and came up with this little idea.

To make some for your herbs or your outdoor garden, you’ll need the following supplies:

wine corks

wooden skewers

black sharpie

polyurethane sealer {if using outdoors}

Now, all you have to do is write out each herb, veggie, or fruit onto individual wine corks.  Poke the pointy end of the skewer into the bottom of the cork and place the skewer in the correct planter.

Now, that’s what I call a Craft Lightning project!

If you’re using these outside, make sure to apply a coat of polyurethane sealer to keep the marker from fading away.

I’ll be linking up at these fabulous parties!

    Very Cute Idea! Thank you for sharing- I planted my pallet garden and didn’t mark where I put seeds, so now it is a guessing game- but once they mature enough, and I figure it out- I am definitely going to make these!
    You can check out my pallet garden here-http://www.thebunchblog.blogspot.com/2013/04/diy-pallet-veggie-garden-free-container.html
    I’ll post a little update with your cork markers when I make them and be sure to share with you!
    Best,
