With all this gardening going on, it’s time to mark what they are! I recently forgot what one little herb plant was and text one of my best friends a photo asking her. She’s the one who makes her own pie crust and pita bread (yes, if I didn’t love her so much I’d hate her), and has a food blog. I told her it couldn’t be rosemary, it didn’t smell like rosemary. She text, “Rosemary or tarragon.” Since I don’t know what the heck tarragon is, I assume I bought a rosemary and forgot.
I guess it was time to put name tags on the little babies and I didn’t want to pay $35 for a handful. The sun would often bleach the trace of my permanent marker on the wood. Then, thanks to Pinterest, I found this blog post that showed me how to make my own from things I already had!
Step 1: Cut the aluminum bottom into long rectangles for your tags. I liked that mine had a little texture.
Step 2: Make them fancy if you want.
Step 3: Use a ball point pen to write the name, leaving room on the left side. Write on a magazine or a stack of mail if it helps.
Step 4: Hot glue gun and begin to roll it. I put an extra drop on the top too.
Yes, there is a heart on the basil. If the herbs were children, basil would be my favorite child.
Diana Elizabeth felt so domestic when she had all the materials that the DIY project called for. Who knew she’d have bamboo skewers around?
