Kitty Litter Jug Equals Free Plant Tags


I sell plants so I was looking for a way to label my plants without having to spend any money-plant tags can get expensive. I didn't have any mini blinds or popsicle sticks around so I went to my recycling bin and this is what I came up with.
This is what you need.
This is what you need.
All you need is a kitty litter jug, a sharp pair of scissors, a sharpie or pencil and a plant tag to trace.

If you are like me and are messy-use alcohol to wipe off any excess sharpie so they look neater.

They look as good as the plant tags I already have, but better yet they were free. To see more stop by my blog..

    I did this and used a sharpie, but it wasn't long before the rain washed the writing away. Have you had that issue?
