Need a WEATHERPROOF and cheap way to mark your veggies and herbs in the garden? Our DIY Chalkboard Paint Garden Marker tutorial is SO incredibly easy even your kids can decorate them for you! I made enough for my entire garden so I can mark my seeds as they are sprouting.
You only need 3 items to create these too! Line them up in a row to create borders around your different herbs or veggies in your garden!
Liquid Chalk Marker
I then used a white liquid chalk marker to write the name of each veggie or herb on separate spoons (one name per spoon). The awesome thing about the liquid chalk markers is that because the spoon is a non-porous surface it is permanently on there. Which means that you won’t have to worry about your labels washing off in the rain or as you water your garden! The liquid chalk marker dries pretty instantly so as soon as you write your label you’ll be ready to go!
Just grab your new stylish chalkboard paint spoon markers and head to your garden! Make sure you space the spoons far enough from your plants to give them room to grow! Push the handle of the spoon about half way down into the ground and enjoy knowing you will no longer have to worry about what seeds you planted where! You can also used several of the same labeled spoons as garden markers to border off a specific area like lettuce.
At the end of your growing season just collect all of your spoons and store them in a dry place until the next spring! You don’t want to till over your spoons! These are so stylish and extremely budget friendly. Plus they are weather proof and you can easily see the markers from across the yard so they don’t get buried down in the dirt! These garden markers make great gifts, especially when placed in unique garden containers!
