  • diy garden markers - a beautiful way to label plants in the garden & a great gift!

    This month, Lowe’s challenged us to create our own plant or garden markers. While I’m in the mood for Spring, the Kansas winter is lingering on & snow is still on the ground. I decided this would be a fun opportunity to create a gift for a great friend that her & her family can enjoy. I love the Lowe’s Creative Ideas challenges because they encourage me to do things I hadn’t dreamt of. At first it felt like all the ideas I could think of had been done. Then, it hit me. I remembered Michael Wurm’s gold magnetic letters. I’m not really a magnet on the refrigerator kind of girl, but I was enamored with their beauty. Yes, I was inspired by Inspired by Charm. I love copper in the garden – it’s just gorgeous how it captures the light & weathers beautifully with time. So, it was off to Lowe’s!

    I paired the garden markers with adorable seed packets I found at a local store – aren’t they pretty? Wrap with a ribbon & they’re ready to gift!

    It took me two tries to get just the right match for true copper spray paint…be sure to use Rustoleum Metallic. Caps can be deceitful!
