Vinyl Blinds for Plant Markers

I take an old plastic mini-blind and cut the string to remove slats off the string. Then take 3 slats at a time stacked and flush, start your first cut at the hole for the strings, use that as a size guide cutting down the slat, using up the slat. Then put a point on one end. I have plant markers that look all the same and almost look store purchased. I use a paint pen, because Sharpie ink does not last outside.

Caution! You will have TONS of plant or row markers with this project.

I have done this before but as you say, permanent marker does not stay "permanent". So thanks for the tip about the paint pen.
