Make Your Marker

No green thumb? No worries! You won't need it for this particular garden project. Spice up your flower beds—thriving or otherwise—with one-of-a-kind garden markers. Just check out these reader-submitted projects for creative inspiration. They're made from materials you likely have lying around the garage, and look just as good as the blooms they label.

TOH reader Linda Crosser of Walnut, California, turned old license plates into the garden ornaments shown here by cutting out letters to spell her favorite plant names, and fastening them to scrap wood.

Got some ideas of your own? Post photos of your creative garden markers at our Facebook page, and they could be added to this gallery for all to see.
