Herb Garden Markers


I have been seeing so many variations
of garden markers on pinterest
that I wanted to make some
for my herb garden.


I found some little wooden dowels at Dollarama
and I bought some wine corks at our local grocery store.


I took a medium-fine marker
and labelled the corks.


I broke the dowels in half
because I wanted smaller stakes
and then inserted them in the corks.


It was so simple and quick to make.


And it gives that little extra added touch to the herbs.


Quick, simple and economical -
my favorite type of project :)

    1. After a couple of years of trying to grow Basil outside I have taken to growing it inside where it seems to do better.

  3. Cute idea! I've been looking for something like this for my herb garden. And thanks for the tip on growing basil inside. I've had a hard time with it too.

    1. Kimberly - I found the wine corks at the Real Canadian Superstore in the wine making department. I am not sure where you are but I am sure you could find some wherever they sell wine making supplies.

  8. Hi Alana, Your little markers are so cute! When I first looked at them I thought maybe they were those white spools that thread comes on. I wonder if one could find a dowel to fit snugly into those?!

  11. These are just too cute. What a clever idea. I've never seen the wine corks sold in a box before at the grocery store. I have seen some amazing projects done using lots of wine corks and wondered how someone would have so many, this coming from someone who doesn't drink wine. I have about 7-8 corks and that's after years of saving. ha,ha.
    Now I know I can find them without the bottle attached.

    1. We don't drink wine either so I thought I would check the wine making section in our grocery store and was pleasantly surprised :)
