Garden Markers

Am I the only crazy that saves EVERYTHING? I know there's someone out there with this logic too....besides you Dad..... "but it's so neat....there's got to be SOMETHING I could do with this, I should just save it." Some time ago began my compulsive environmentally conscious saving of concentrated oj metal lids....you know the metal thingies on the ends of the can? Well.....it finally dawned on me! Now aren't you glad I saved these my dear husband? I didn't spend a dime on this project. ;-)

GARDEN MARKERS!!!!





Basically follow these instructions, add a piece of wire as a poker, a pretty bead and there you have it! I'm off to make a jillion more to label all the things I lose track of in the garden. :-)

  1. DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW AWESOME YOU ARE? These look amazing. Do you fill in the letters with marker to make them darker when you press them?

    I don't save anything. I'd throw away silverware to avoid cleaning it if my husband didn't step in (exaggerating).

    Where do you keep all these things you hang onto?

    PS - how's the kitchen going?

  2. This is a great idea, and I love how you found a purpose for something that would otherwise be tossed or recycled!

  9. LOVE THIS! Also, loved that you struck out "compulsive" and replaced it with "environmentally!

    I am so going to make these and it cracks me up that I have four of the little red doo-dads that you have on the garlic, but mine are purple, they have been sitting on my desk for I don't know how long because they are so neat....there had to be SOMETHING I could do with them, and this is it! ;)

    Thanks for sharing!
