Scrabble Tile Plant Markers ~

Diana Wearing
by Diana Wearing
The calendar says spring…it’s a little early to plant where I live but the perfect time to make a bouquet of plant markers using shutter slats & scrabble tiles…
I painted my shutter slats (paint sticks would work great too!) with fun colors of chalk paint ~
Laid out my scrabble tiles to see what worked with the colors I had (got a little crazy with a few) and just glued them onto the painted slats using a water resistant exterior glue ~
A simple little project to add a fun pop of color to pots and gardens ~

    Wow super cute idea!!! But where can you find paint stirrers without having to buy paint? I tried buying paint sticks at home Depot and Lowe's but they told me I had to buy paint to.

    Walmart sells craft sticks in multiple sizes. Some are already colored.

    Thanks everyone for the information. I plan on starting a garden this year and was looking for ideas to mark my plants. This idea is perfect!
