So, Sharpie pens are currently my absolute favourite thing to draw or write with, so when I wanted some plant labels (because I can never remember what I planted where, even in the confines of a small planter) they were an obvious choice. Super simple project - just write on craft sticks with the Sharpie pens and then I sprayed both sides with a couple of layers of lacquer to make them more durable, and I didn't want to be brushing anything like mod podge or white glue over the writing in case it smeared.

You don't need a permit for a glue gun.

That's a great idea!  My mom gardens and has been looking for a good way to mark her plants.  She'll love this.  Thanks for sharing!
