Super-Cute Plant Markers
Check out these plant markers I made using free counter-top samples, a clothespin and some wire.
(My totem is about 3 years old; I have it on a table on my porch because it kinda looks like a lamp.)
For the plantmarkers, I first spray-painted the little boards with black chalkboard paint (my first intention was to make the chalkboard tags like Margo does on robojunker.com but I wasn't happy with the texture mine came out with. So next time, I'll probably just use plain black paint.) Then I printed off the plant names and decoupaged them onto the tag with Mod-Podge. I attached a 16-gauge wire to the clothespin and viola. Here's a close-up.
