We are knee deep in gardening season here in Florida and I love to be frugal, creative, and fun in my garden. I was tickled to have my super talented friend Katie from The Homespun Hydrangea create these darling Scrabble tile Plant markers for me to share with you all, and of course, I had to create a set for my own garden! They add a cute whimsical touch among your cabbages, peas, and carrots with little cost and in very little time. Grab your glue gun some scrabble tiles and let’s get crafting for the outdoors!
Scrabble Tile Plant Markers
1. Begin by arranging the letters so they spell the out the plants you wish to mark. Depending on how many words you are making and how long they are, you might want several packages of letters.
2. Once the letters are arranged, place a dab of hot glue on the back of each (be generous) and start at the top of the craft stick pressing them in place. Press firmly so they adhere well.
3. Keep working your way down spelling out the word of your choice.
4. Once done, you can apply a clear varnish if you wish to protect from the elements. Or, leave for a natural weathered look.
Note: If you have a word that is lengthy and won’t fit on the craft stick, just glue two together end to end. You can then add your letters and still have room at the bottom to stick the marker into the ground.
You can use this idea for marking the rows in your vegetable garden, as identifiers in pots for herbs, or include some in a basket with matching seeds as a gift for a friend.
