Recycle those paint stirring sticks to use in your garden to mark all your veggies, fruits or herbs. Simple and inexpensive!
Recycled Stir Sticks Turned GARDEN MARKERS
It's gardening time and here's a very easy DIY using paint stir sticks for garden markers!
I keep everything that I feel I can repurpose for something. While my husband and I were planning our garden this Spring, I grabbed all of my paint stir sticks. I started by cutting a point at one end to make it easier to stick in the round.
I then made some vinyl letters for labeling each marker.
I painted the stir sticks dark brown and once dry I applied the vinyl letters to use as stencils. *You can either use spray paint or slap a different kind of paint on them.
Then came the top coat of paint. I applied two coats and allowed to dry completely.
Now I removed the lettering to expose the brown paint underneath. I sealed them with some sealant since they will be outdoors.
A very inexpensive DIY and they turned out super cute! I even made an extra batch for my daughter to use in her garden.
They stand out and totally help in marking the fruits & veggies and herbs in our garden!
Recycle-reuse-reduce! A great way to use something you probably just have lying around at home!
