Herb Garden for Mom!

 Herb Garden for Mom

Every year for Mother's Day my mom asks for an herb garden.

Plant an herb garden for mom

She brings me her empty, old planter and I fill it up with herbs that she loves. 

This year I made name markers for the herbs, with my Cricut machine.  I cut out each name using vinyl and the Cuttin' Up cartridge.
I didn't have any laminate sheets, so I cut up this laminated/plastic folder that I found for $1.

I placed each of the vinyl names on a plastic rectangle.  I threaded the rectangles through forks that I purchased at Goodwill for .20 a piece.

I also added a bit of ribbon to each fork.  I can never do a project without ribbon!

I then stuck the forks into the soil.

Now, there's no mistake about which herb is which!

Target clearance-- always take a look!

In the after Easter clearance section at Target, I found hot pink and lime green fencing! Perfect for the garden!
(Yes, I took a picture...don't you carry your camera with you at all times?)

 I used wire cutters to cut one fencing section apart from the group of three.

I stuck the section right into the middle of the planter.

I made one for my Mother-in-Law too!
