Give your garden or raised beds a little character this summer by creating these DIY chalkboard garden markers to easily identify your herbs and vegetables. Household items such as wood shims, paint sticks and wooden spoons can be used to easily give your garden that extra touch.
Gather your supplies and line up your wood shims, paint sticks or wooden spoons on a drop cloth or piece of cardboard for painting.
Use painter's tape to tape off how far down you want your paint to go.
Paint two coats of paint on either side of your markers, allowing them to dry to the touch between each coat. When they are dry, remove the tape.
Using plain chalk or a chalk marker, label your markers with the names of the herbs and vegetables in your garden.
Place your markers in the ground, leaving space between the ground and the paint.
Now your garden is complete, and all you need to do is water it and wait for your harvest!
