Chalkboard Garden Markers





Here is an easy DIY that will only take a half hour from start to finish and only costs a couple dollars! My two year old son helped me finish this project while the baby napped, and we really needed some markers for our garden that we planted pretty late this year thanks to the crazy Midwestern weather


 

You'll need:
A pack of wooden shims (or paint sticks, rulers, whatever!)
Chalkboard paint
A permanent white chalk pencil
A paint brush

To start, prepare your shims and take inventory of the plants and vegetables you wish to label. With your list handy, paint enough shims for each mark. The chalkboard paint should cover fairly consistently and only need one coat. Let the shims dry and use the chalk pencil to write each label, and you're done! Go ahead and place them in your garden and enjoy a super simple homemade touch!
