Fork & Cork Plant Markers

Last week I reminded you of the spoon plant markers that I made last year. At the end of the post I said how I was working on some new ones. Well, here they are...

I bought the forks at the Goodwill for 25 cents each.
I used a hammer to flatten them out so my prongs would be straight.

I used a wood burner to put the names of the herbs on my corks...

Then I pressed the forks into the corks...

I wrapped twine around the top part of the fork handle securing it with E6000...
Tip: use a chip clip to hold the twine in place until it dries...

I added a bow just above the wrapped twine and there you have it... fork & cork plant markers!
