Using Plant Markers

I was looking for a way to decorate a gift pot of basil I was giving a friend, and started playing around. Using watercolor and pen work, I made these herb markers that could be used not only for gift tags, but as indoor herb gardens markers. They are variegated green leaves with red berries in a wreath. The herb name is a font the emulates brush lettering, which I love!



You can get a free Microsoft Word download of these to print as often as you like at the link at the bottom of the page.

Printing out the Plant Markers

The plant markers come as a Word document. You can print these on a color printer, the same way you would print any Word file.

There are 2 sheets included, with 15 labeled herbs, and one left blank so you can write in your own! I used these herb markers in three ways.

  1. The herb label is glued onto a ribbon, as a gift tag, so you can write your favorite herb recipe inside
  2. Glued onto a Popsicle stick, so they can stick into any of your favorite indoor plants
  3. My favorite, the herb label can be glued onto a half of a pipe cleaner, and hanging from the rim of a flower pot.

    1. Using Herb Markers as a Gift Tag for an indoor plant

First, cut out around the herb labels. Cut around the TWO labels that read the same herb. Fold the herb label in half along the line in the center, as shown above.

Punch a hole at the top, center of the folded label. Thread a ribbon or twine through the hole.

2. Using Herb Markers on a stick for your indoor plants

First, print the downloaded sheet. For this project, printing on card stock instead of regular printer paper works the best. Cut around the TWO labels that read the same herb. Fold the herb label in half along the line. Place a Popsicle stick inside the folded piece of paper.

Using a thin layer of glue on both sides of the card stock, glue the stick inside of the folded herb label.

3. Making an Herb Label Hang Tag for your indoor garden

This is my favorite herb label project, because it is so cute – it looks like a little hanging tea bag label. Perfect for herbs to be used in teas!

First, print and cut out like detailed above. Fold the herb label in half, and punch or cut a small hole in the middle of the fold.

Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Fold this piece of pipe cleaner in half and insert about 1 inch of the cut ends into the hole. Fold the ends so they line up along the fold as shown above.
