Painted Garden Mini Marker Plant Labels with Cricut Lettering


My pretty painted garden large labels created for the fruit trees, shrubs, and berries were so nice that I couldn't resist trying a mini marker version.  My hodge podge of chicken scratched plain popsicle sticks (weathered and faded to unreadable) and nursery labels looked so terrible sad by comparison in the veggie garden.

Painted Garden Markers for Trees, Shrubs, and Large Plants


This post was prepared in collaboration with our partner blog Green in Real Life.  Crafting is somewhat on hold around here as things are packed up and prepped for moving, with the exception of a few last minute functional DIYs like these awesome plant markers.  We have a gorgeous garden with lots of edible perennial plantings (so sad I won't get to enjoy them!), and to help the new owners know what's what for care and future snacking, pretty new plant tags were in order.
