DIY pail plant markers suppliesPlant Markers are so fun in the garden but it seems like I need to change them out a lot! I’m either planting new herbs, or removing a plant that didn’t make it past a season or two!

So I thought of this fun idea that takes about 5 minutes. These little pails were found at Michaels for about $3 each. They are galvanized metal so will last over time and you can change them at will.

Rather than using chalk paint and worrying my chalk would wash off I used black masking tape and a permanent white marker. This tape can be found at any art supply store. In this way, any time I need to change a label, I just whisk off the old tape and add new!

There’s a great Michaels at Superstition Shopping Center and one at Gilbert Gateway Towne Center, both just minutes from Cadence at Gateway. And the shepherd hooks came from Home Depot. Check out the one at 1545 S Crismon Rd; it’s also just minutes from Cadence at Gateway.
