I'm wondering if anyone has used their used wine corks to make plant markers? They turn out pretty neat but I have a horrible time posting pictures.

How do you make them? I am always looking for plant markers :-)

Can you upload the pictures to Photobucket? Garden Web uses the html link.

Really nice!

RE: Wine Cork Plant labels

I tried to do the spoons and it was too hard to get the letters to stamp in. I had bought 2 sets of letters, one for a non profit that I was helping with a garden. Brought it there and couldn't do it! (Always try things at home before you go public :)
I don't know where my set of letters went to. Somewhere in the cellar at one of my dh's work benches I guess. I got very discouraged!

Those look great! I buy the old stainless silver ware at Thrift stores and use the use the handles to write the names on, they don't rust when stuck in the garden. Some with the old plastic handles really look good too. You need to use paint pens as no other pens are permanent, Also, the wine corks I label pretty much the same but some I really decorate with beads, etc. to use in house plants or in an indoor kitchen herb garden. Thanks so much for posting your pics, One of these days I'm going to learn how.
