Fabric Duck Tape Plant Flags via homework | carolynshomework.com

I know we’re all eager for spring and it really is just around the corner. I can’t wait to get outside and plant a spring vegetable garden. This year, I’m going to add more herbs to my garden and these cute plant flags will handy so I can identify my plants.

Etceteras: yarn wrapped plant markers

Don’t you love the look and smell of fresh herbs growing in a kitchen window?

I haven’t planted my herb garden yet but in preparation, I made these plant marker flags.
I started with corn cob sticks and wrapped yarn around the top half. The bottom half will go into the dirt so I wanted to keep that plain.
To identify the herbs, I made little flags and tied them onto the sticks. I used a permanent marker to handwrite the herb names onto the fabric.

Next on my to-do list: buy herb plants and enjoy the fragrance and taste of fresh herbs.

The Dirt: faux metal plant sticks



I came across the most amazing faux metal wall art at Suzy’s Artsy Crafty Sitcom.  Of course, I had to try to make some. Here’s a shout out to Suzy because mine are in the trash.

I did have a few strips of the paper towel rolls left so I decided to make one last attempt. I curled the paper towel roll strips and glued them onto a stick to make plant sticks. And like Suzy’s wall art, I spray painted them using black metallic paint.

If you want to give someone a plant as a gift, these would make nice gift tag holders. Just tie your gift tag to the plant stick or use them with herb plants to identify your herbs.



I’m glad I didn’t give up and throw everything in the trash. If you first do not succeed…
