This week we've had incredible weather in Victoria. Warm, sunny weather means I'm out in the garden getting everything planted. Usually when I'm planting seeds, I simply use craft sticks to identify the veggies in each row but today I ran out of sticks right in the middle of planting. I searched around my house and garage but couldn't find anything else. As I was looking, I noticed the washi tape tags on my iphone cord (see post here) and an idea popped into my head… why not use washi tape on wooden shish kabob skewers (which I have a ton of).
It's super easy to make these garden tags. Here's a really quick run down:
- Find a few different designs of washi tape
- Cut a strip of washi tape about 4 inches long
- Place the top of wooden shish kabob skewer in the middle of the sticky side of the washi tape and then fold the tape in half so that both sides meet and stick together
- Cut into the end of the washi tape to make a little “V” and give the tape a pennant look
- Write on the tape with a permanent Sharpie marker
- Put the stick into the ground in the area you want marked and identified.
