I am finishing off mason jar week with some garden markers in a jar shape. Yes, mason jar lovers everywhere need a set of these! Add them to a rustic herb planter like I have done or hang them from your existing pots. Either way, you are sure to love the cute, rustic addition these garden markers make to your home. Be sure to also scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to see even more summer mason jar ideas! This one was originally posted over at Darice where I am a paid contributor.
Supplies needed to make the garden markers and herb planter:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore, however, I will earn a commission from your purchase.
- Galvanized Metal Planter
- Chalkboard Jar Tags
- Outdoor Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Weeding Tools (optional)
- Drill and Drill Bit
- Herb Markers Cut File (click here to access)
- Cricut Machine (click here to see the difference between the machines)
Upload the herb marker file to the software for your Cricut machine. We have more information on uploading files to Cricut Design Space here. Be sure to size the words correctly before cutting to fit your tags. Cut from permanent vinyl.
Once cut, start weeding the excess from the vinyl on each label. Weeding tools make this job a bit easier but they are optional.
Apply transfer tape to the vinyl and carefully remove the backing paper.
Then apply each word to your garden markers using the transfer tape. Be sure to press the vinyl down well.
Repeat the steps above for as many garden markers as you like.
If you want to attach them to a planter, use a drill and drill bit to drill holes where the holes are located in the wood mason jars. Clean up any sharp exposed edges with a grinder. Use caution as the edges of the holes will be really sharp.
Then just use twine to tie on your garden markers.
Fill the planter with dirt and add in plants or start some herbs from seeds.
These garden markers are perfect for any mason jar lover in your life. Make a set for yourself and one to give as a gift!
I love growing fresh herbs in the summer and when they are also cute that makes it even better!
