DIY Garden Markers.

One of my most daunting items on my 30 before 30 list is this: grow something from a seed. That may seem like a fine task for the average human, but for all of my skills in the kitchen and DIY tendencies, I seem to have a black thumb (coupled with some very mischievous city squirrels that like to dig up anything I plant). I am determined this year though to make it happen, and have been growing some herbs and veggies on the porch that were just about ready to be re-potted this weekend into their homes for the summer. I decided to make a few plant markers out of popsicle sticks to keep my seedlings straight! A coat of acrylic paint on the bottom of the sticks gave them a pop of color, and I topped them with some chalkboard paint to make them easy to label — a quick and easy DIY. Now I just need to keep those plants alive! Garden Markers 1 Garden Markers 2 Garden Markers 3 Garden Markers 4 Garden Markers 5

    These are absolutely adorable! I’m seriously going to make these!! Have you ever tried DIY-ing your own beauty products? It’s super fun and completely nontoxic unlike store bought products. Here’s a super easy recipe for powder foundation! http://redlipmakeup.wordpress.com/2014/05/27/diy-natural-powder-foundation/
