As a continuation on my farmhouse garden I have been creating with the help of my friends at The Home Depot, I am sharing a sweet detail of my garden today: copper markers.
DIY: Copper Garden Markers
If you’re anything like me you love a good garden that looks like it stepped directly out of Peter Rabbit’s sweet cottage garden set on an English countryside. I hope you’ve been following along with our Farmhouse Garden series this season, with all the garden-to-table vegetables, fruits, herbs + florals you’ll need to effortlessly entertain at a moments notice.
I took these really sturdy + sweet little copper garden markers from Home Depot and did a simple DIY to them with my old-school label maker by adding the plant names. The plant markers are not flimsy and they won’t rot away so I knew they’d be perfect for getting me through the season and still being able to ID what I had planted. The all-metal will only get better with age and is waterproof to hold up outside.
And I just love how “farmhouse” these black + white plastic labels are these days, some things never go out of style! And you can use this for a million things around your house and for the kids which is great too. And I went with the all-black tape because it’s timeless. It’s easy to use too, you just insert the tape, turn the ABC wheel until the letter is showing that you want to use and click the button on the handle. When you’re done with the plant name (or whatever word you’re creating) you can click the button to cut it and you have the cute little strip ready to apply anywhere! These are plastic so they’re also waterproof, which is perfect for the garden.
