Making Popsicle Stick Plant Markers

November 19, 2016

Popsicle stick plant markerAt this time of year, many of my plants are being brought inside for the winter. I love all of the beautiful plant markers that can be purchased, but if you have a lot of plants, those markers can get expensive. I save Popsicle sticks to make inexpensive markers. On one side you can write the name of the plant, on the other you can note any specific care information. I've added a second marker to the pot of this plant, an African Mask Elephant Ear, because ALL parts of this plant are poisonous: leaves, stems, and roots! Sometimes I just draw a skull and crossbones! When I first buy juvenile plants, or plants that are simply unfamiliar to me, this is especially important. Just use a permanent marker and you'll find that these markers last quite awhile, while saving you a lot of money.

Our kids each planted a garden this year and I thought it would be helpful if they had plant markers. I had some oversized craft Popsicle sticks and thought they would make good markers.

I have a little container garden and planted seeds in 6 containers. To mark my veggies, I used Popsicle sticks and just put the letter of the veggie planted.


You can use both ends, if you want to change your choice of veggies for the next year, also.

Need help organizing your seeds? When planting seeds at any time, you don't need to buy expensive planting labels. You can use popsicle sticks, tongue depressors, or window blinds cut into smaller pieces.
