How to make Heart-Shaped Wooden Herb Markers

Heart shaped DIY wooden plant herb markers for indoor or outdoor garden

Aren’t those wooden herb markers super cute? I’ll be teaching you how to do them today. I’d categorize them as a super simple craft that even absolute beginners can do!

I always have a herb pot or two in my home. How about you? Sadly my current apartment doesn’t have a balcony or backyard, so the windowsill will have to make do.

A little green already adds a certain flair to my home, but I love to go even further and decorate my plants with some extras. Last year, I’ve made these gorgeous little wire dragonflies for example. Learn how to make that darling painted flower pot here.

Craft Room De-Stash Challenge

As I was decluttering my craft room this January I stumbled over a big bag of little heart-shaped wooden cut-outs and started dabbling with them. As a result, I ended up having little hearts on sticks.

I stuck them in my plants and let them sit for a day or two until I came up with the idea to write herb names on them and use them as cute herb markers for my kitchen windowsill.

    1. You could use them as decor for other plants and write words like ‘home’, ‘love’, ‘happy’ on them.

  1. These are just darling Habiba! You could use them at Valentine’s too, or anytime you want to spread a little LUV! They look so nice sticking up above your herbs, and love that this is easy!

    1. Thank you, Florence. I was thinking the same exact thing! They’d be nice to transport other messages, too.
