Clothespin Plant Markers

There are so many plant marker ideas but I am all about easy and frugal gardening tips. You don't need to buy fancy plant markers from Home Depot or Lowes. Head to the dollar stores or your laundry room for these frugal DIY clothespin plant markers.

Supplies needed:
Wood clothespins
Sharpie marker
And that's it!!

Just abbreviate if needed and write your plant description on one side and the planting date on the other side and done! What could be easier?

You can place your cheap plant markers on the sides of pots, seed starting  containers, plastic plant packs and like me right on the fencing or trellis.

So there you have it. The easiest frugal plant marker homemade tool.
