Easy Cork Plant Labels

DIY Plant Cork Labels

Are you like me, and always have a pot or more of fresh herbs growing in the kitchen?

There is nothing like having them directly on hand to add to your culinary dishes as you create.

That's great if you are a herb enthusiast because you will have a grasp on what herb is what.

But then again, you might have another cook or Chefs assistant in the house who doesn't!

These simple cork labels are the answer.

Just five minutes to make.

And the perfect solution to that 'What is this herb again?' question.

Currently, in my small kitchen, I have two herbs.

Because they are the ones I use the most in my savory cooking.

Parsley and thyme.

To make the labels I used Dollar Store Craft corks, and bamboo kitchen skewers.

(Total cost  - $4.50, with excess to create more 'Cork Plant Labels' if desired to put aside for other craft projects).

You will also need a fine-point black Sharpie pen.

Pot your plants using a high-quality indoor potting mix that contains added slow-release fertilizer.

Water pots and set aside.

Take your cork and write from the smaller end to the thicker end your herb name.

I find craft store corks are a lot harder than wine bottle cork, so pushing skewers into these is difficult.

So you will need a nail and a small hammer to make a pilot hole first.

Then push the wooden skewer into the hole.

And that is it.

Place into your pre-planted pots for cute and corky

'at a glance' herb labels for the inside kitchen garden.

You could even use these DIY cork plant labels in a greenhouse or glasshouse environment too.
