Make Garden Markers With Foil Duct Tape

Garden markers are great for beginners as the plants don't always look like what you see on the seed packet. You can buy fancy designer markers or just write on a Paddlepop stick with a felt pen, but if you want something visually appealing with a dirt cheap DIY price consider using aluminium duct tape.

Crafting weblog Aunt Peaches shares how to make inexpensive and attractive garden markers using a bit of aluminium duct tape and a box of plastic dinner knives. Cut out a piece of aluminium tape and sandwich it around the handle of the plastic knife. Then write the plant name in reverse on the tape with a ballpoint pen -- this will press out the letters on the other side and you'll have an embossed metallic garden marker. You may want to practice writing the name backward on a piece of paper first.
