A Party with a Purpose
Painting parties with girlfriends seem to be the new craze now-a-days! Rather than waiting for an invite, why not host your own? Grab a few large rocks and simple supplies, send out a few invites, whip up a few tasty apps and summery drinks...and have your closest friends over to create a set of fabulous markers for your garden!

Glitter and Glam
Rather than running out the door for those standard, boring garden markers, why not run around your house instead? Turn a few easy-to-find household items into markers with pizzazz!
We could all use a bit of extra sparkle in our lives, right? Well, why not start in your own backyard? These precious herb markers are sure to catch an eye or two...so be ready to share your secret! In My Own Style provides the full steps.
"Stick" to the Basics
If you're looking to maintain a more earthy, natural feel in your garden then these markers just may interest you...

Keepin' it Old School
Are you a black and white lover? The black and white newspaper, the old movies, black and white photo copies...no sepia tone for you! Well, with a bit of chalk board paint and a few paint stirrers from your local hardware store...
...you can create garden markers with a timeless, classic look. Oh, and don't forget the super neat handwriting!
Classy and Chic
And the finished product is simply stunning!
Don't Recycle Those Bottles...
Rather than turn those old bottles in for five cents a piece, why not give them an entirely new, super cool look?
...Reuse Them Instead!
Glass bottles may not come to mind first when thinking of ways to create markers for your garden...but maybe it's time to think outside of the box! Check out the project details on the Daily Pea site.
Beautify with Beads

If I had a Hammer

A Spoonful of Sugar
...and a bit of paint, these old spoons become unique, darling labels for the herbs and veggies in your garden! Turning the Clock Back gives you the full "scoop!"
Cute with Clay
Who would have thought that dusty, lifeless stacks of clay flower pots sitting on the corner of your potting shelf could be turned into one-of-a-kind markers for your garden? Well, now you know!
