Sheer brilliance I tell ya.

Incredibly smart, super easy DIY garden markers made with an upcycle that you are going to feel great about! And brilliant!

I made these super easy DIY garden markers with an upcycle and some sharpies. Also, I used a pair of scissors. Seriously. That is it.

You may, like me,  happen to have a disdain for the vinyl/plastic horizontal blinds that are a pain in the @$$ to clean, and never work exactly the way you want them to. You may also, like me, happen to have a house full of them anyway.

Well go grab the one you hate the most, pull it down, grab the previously mentioned scissors and sharpies- and give yourself two minutes.

SUPER EASY DIY GARDEN MARKERS  TUTORIAL

Too easy right?

WEATHERPROOF GARDEN MARKERS 

Regular Sharpies or other permanent markers are pretty resistant but might not stand up to an entire season of rain and sunshine so you may want to consider a clear coat of nail polish or a sealant of some kind OR I hear you can get Heavy Duty waterproof Sharpies.  Lemme know if you find any. 

TRY THESE GARDEN MARKERS TOO

If you had, say a little collection of wine corks,(no judging here!) you will probably love these Wine Cork Garden Markers as well. Again with the super easy and the upcycle potential, these are not only charming – they are super useful and practical, cause that’s how we roll.

  1. This is a great way to repurpose old window blinds into something functional. Getting the kids involved in decorating them can be a fun craft for them and family members who have gardens.

  2. What a cool idea. I used to make my own garden markers too. They save us time and money
