15-Minute Garden Projects
Labels from leftovers
Mark your sprouts with these easy-to-make plant labels, using recycled stuff from around the house.
What you'll need:
• Canning lids or plastic plant pots
• 9-gauge aluminum wire
• Polyurethane spray (optional)
How to do it:
Just pound a nail through a canning lid to create a hole. Label the lid with the plant name, using a permanent marker. Thread aluminum wire through the hole and poke into soil. To use the tag again next year, spray it with polyurethane. For plastic tags, cut any shape from last year's plant pots and mark with a silver marker if the plastic surface is dark.
