Earlier in the week I posted these painted rock labels. A fun way to get your kids involved and interested in the veggie garden. To compliment them, I made some tie on tags for my herb garden, which will be in hanging pots this year (we have lots of hungry bunnies around here!).
Find plastic container. I chose black, because I had a white paint pen for marking it so it was a good contrast. A fine tipped permanent marker would work well on lighter coloured plastics.
Trim into desired shapes. To make a hole in them for hanging, you can use a strong punch, or heat a pin or nail in the flame of a candle and push it through the plastic. That is the method I used. It will melt it like butter and it’s very fast.
Write on your tags, and thread with some string or yarn. To further protect your tag, give the letters a coat of clear nail polish.
Now you can tie them onto your plants / planters!
