When you first plant your garden, it can be hard to remember which seeds you planted where, so it’s a good idea to use plant markers for your garden.

If you’re new to gardening like me, you may even need plant markers for seedlings to make sure you recognize each plant variety you planted.

Here’s an easy DIY to make your own garden plant markers in a matter of minutes.

Supplies you will need:

  • Super Jumbo sticks from craft store (I chose Woodpile from Hobby Lobby
  • TRUArt Pyrography Pen (or any other wood burning tool you prefer)
  • a pencil to write the plant names on the wood before burning

I recommend using a pencil to write the plant name on the wood first.

That way, you are less likely to misspell a word or make a mistake with spacing.

It might take you a few tries to get the hang of using the tool. Chances are, you will have plenty of wood sticks to practice wood burning.
