I like to plant a LOT of different types of vegetables in my garden.

A lot of times if you’ve planted it in the past, it’s pretty easy to tell what plant it is based on the shape of the leaves.

When the plants are still seedlings, it’s really hard (aka impossible) to tell right away.

Plus, if you have someone visiting your garden they won’t necessarily know which plant is which based on leaf shape, color, etc.

Here are some fun DIY garden labels to help you keep your plants organized.


DIY Painted Rock Plant Markers

This is a super cute project and you can get your kids involved with making these.  You can make the designs on the rock as detailed or simple as you like.

You can see all the designs they made at Craft By Amanda.

Picture Frame Plant Markers

These are super cute!  I love that it’s visual so kids who can’t read yet still know which plant it is.

These stamp ones are pretty cool.  They will hold up well to being outside, so you should be able to use these year after year.

You can find this at Tator Tots and Jello.

Mason Jar

I never would have thought to use mason jar lids as plant markers.  I love the pictures she has used on them.

Clothes Pins

Clothes Pin with Washi Tape DIY Plant Marker

Clothes Pins are another item I wouldn’t have thought to use as garden markers.  But, I love how she uses washi tape on them for a burst of color and design.  They also appear to be super cheap and easy to make.

Clay Garden Markers

My kid would love making these!  You can make the label part as large as you want if you needed to.

Wooden Spoons

I’ve also seen a lot of different wooden spoon garden markers.  I love how these ones are different colors.   These are super cute and would again be super affordable and easy to make.  These are another one that your kids might want to join in on making as well.
