UpCycled Garden Labels

I have been itching to get out into the community garden. I decided a while back I wanted to create upcycled garden labels this year. I just love the idea of of giving things a second life. Saving money also is a perk. I looked through thrift stores, antique stores, and through my craft bins. Finally, as I was making pasta and rinsing off the lid, it hit me!!

Label your fruits, veggies, and herbs with these cute upcycled garden labels.
Between pickles, marinara, salsa, and olives; we go through a lot of jars. You can easily ask your friends to set them aside for you too… Before you know it you will have plenty! I had so many left over I saved for Christmas ornaments!

What you need for your upcycled garden labels:

  • Jar Lids
  • Spray Paint
  • Paint Pens
  • Krylon Acrylic Coating
  • Hangers
  • Glue

Making your upcycled garden labels:

 
I sprayed the lids my base color. Then drew on my veggie names with paint pens.

My Man prepped the hangers for me. A quick cut with wire cutters and a few bends and they were good to go.

A quick mark on the inside of the lid helped me center the wire to glue into place.

I sprayed them with a few coats of Krylon Acrylic Coating. It protects against UVs, it is moisture-resistant, and non-yellowing.

They are going into a garden so a little wear and tear will only give them character 🙂

You can stick them straight into the ground. They will have plenty of wire below ground to hold up to the weather.

I can’t wait to get my upcycled garden labels up!! They were plowing today so it should be soon!!
