Here are a variety of ways to make garden markers that are very easy and inexpensive to make.

First Garden Marker - you'll need your packet from your seeds, paint stir stick (or stick, skewer, plastic kitchen spoon, etc. - something to be a stake), and glass jar.
Use your empty packet of seeds and place on the stake of your choice. (Open your packet of seeds from the bottom.)
Place your recycled jar onto the top to cover and protect your seed packet from the elements.
Stake in your garden.

Option 3 - Write with sharpie on a plastic spoon (3-$1 at Dollar Tree). You can stop here or ...
Using more colorful sharpies...
On the back side draw a picture of your planted item. A great option for color and if you have kids/grand kids etc.

Option 5 - Write with a sharpie on an old kitchen utensil and stake into the ground by your plant.
