DIY Flower Pot Label

Summer Crafting with Unconventional Materials

Last year, for the first time, I collected seeds from various flowers in my garden.  

This year, once those seeds were planted, I needed a creative way to identify the flowers.  

Using plastic cut from a Milk Jug and Alcohol Ink, I created artsy flower pot labels.

  • Drop several drops of alcohol ink* onto the plastic.
  • Spray the alcohol inks with the alcohol-filled mini mister to make the inks run and spread.
  • Use a straw to direct the spread of the inks.

  • Once the inks have dried, spray the plastic with a matte acrylic sealer to help weatherproof the label.

I have several small pots of flowers growing.  I will eventually place some of them in the ground.  

The others I will leave in the pots.  I will harvest the seeds again in the fall.

This was a very cost-effective way to add beautiful blooms to my garden.
