Mason jars and home décor go hand in hand , which is why I love making mason jar crafts! This summer, why not bring your love of rustic mason jars to the garden? These adorable mason jar lid DIY garden markers are the perfect way to label all your plants with a little bit of rustic charm. Whether you’re hoping to label all your herbs or want a fun way to name all the plants in your veggie garden, these cute garden markers are the perfect summer craft.
Why you should use garden markers
While markers aren’t absolutely necessary in a garden, they do make things a little easier during the early stages of planting. It may be simple to see what types of plants are growing in your garden in the middle of the growing season as your plants are growing fruit. But knowing exactly what is planted and where it’s planted is a little more difficult at the beginning of the season.
Whether you’re growing your garden from seed or planting small seedlings in the ground, small plants are much harder to identify than fully grown ones. By adding garden markers to your garden, you can make things a little easier on yourself.
Garden markers are helpful if you’re a beginner gardener who has trouble distinguishing between the seedlings in your garden. And they’re great for experienced gardeners who have a large variety of plants in their garden beds.
No matter your reason for adding garden markers to your garden this summer, making your own DIY garden markers is definitely the way to go!
In addition to being a fun project to pass the time, making your own garden markers allows you to add a little bit of personality to your garden that store-bought garden markers just won’t provide.
