30 DIY Plant Label & Marker Ideas For Your Garden

Gardening is so much fun. Setting seeds and waiting for them to grow into full-fledged plants, flowers or even fruits is much like seeing your child develop and grow. It takes hours of research, careful planning, watering, nurturing and numerous other tasks that may be time- and effort-intensive, but feel worth it when the final result blooms to life. Taking all of this into account, it is natural for you to want to clearly identify all of your plots and species, so that you don’t mix them up and end up ruining all your hard work. Also, it makes all good sense that your plants are clearly identified when you want to show them off to your friends and family. It is for this latter reason that you markers and labels need to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing – because you don’t want to ruin the beauty of your little garden with ugly handwritten labels. Today, you will see a gallery full of label and marker ideas for your garden, from sophisticated, to sweet and fun. We hope this gets your plant-loving creative juices flowing!

Amazing Spray Paint Project Ideas to Beautify Your Home

Spray paint is a great invention. It sure has drawbacks like the smell, the fact that aerosols aren’t great for the environment and all that, but it also has great advantages that make it popular, especially among DIY fanatics. Spray paint is easy to use, and while it can be messy, it saves you from getting your hands dirty – for the most part – and doesn’t require you to have as much skill as a brush or paint roll would. There’s a lot that you can do with spray paint. It works on most surfaces, and while it may not be great for precision work, you can cover big areas easily and quickly, which means that you can do small, but most of all, big projects in no time at all. Also, you can easily control the opacity of the paint, which means you can achieve great gradients and fade effects, especially on glass surfaces. The beauty of spray paint is just that – you can transform everything – from a plain piece to a restored one – overnight with just a can of paint. Need inspiration? We have a few projects to help you. Just remember to do them outside, because this paint is as toxic as any other, if not more.
