Even though we are at the beginning of our Winter here in Australia I thought it would be too much fun to miss out on a fun Summer Fun Blog Hop with all my blogging pals. There is a tonne of fun things to create and keep the kiddies busy along with my Farmhouse Planter Herb Markers using wooden paint stirrers.
How to Make Easy Farmhouse Farmhouse Planter Herb Markers
- Wooden Paint Stirrers. I found these at my local Bunnings Hardware.
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Coal Black
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Champlain
- Paint Brush
- Herb Labels
- Old Store Card
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Beeswax Stick
- 120 Grit Sandpaper
Step 1 – Give your paint stirrers one coat of Coal Black. Letting each coat dry in between. Rub over the stirrers with your beeswax stick. Then apply 2 coats of Champlain, letting each coat dry in between. Grab your 120 grit sandpaper and distress to your liking.
Step 2 – Remove the backing paper from your herb labels and apply to the paint stirrers. Using an old store card rub firmly over the top of the labels. Remove transfer tape.
Step 3 – Repeat step 2 until all of your labels have been applied to your paint stirrers.
And there you have a fun easy way to mark your herbs in your garden and enjoy the outdoors!
There’s nothing better than being able to go straight out to your garden and pick fresh herbs to add to your cooking. Be sure to check out below all of the other fun Summer Projects by my blogging pals.

Love these Sam! What a great idea.
Thank you so much, Deborah!!
So cool and eco friendly too Sam. Is it getting chilly on your side of the pond too 😉 I miss Summer, but the gardens need to rest too I suppose and it hasn’t been as cold as I thought it would be. Most evenings we can still stay outside until about 7, so no complaints
It sure is Michelle!! We are all snuggled up in front of the fire as we speak! I am totally with you on Summer! I miss it too! But we desperately need rain! Oh gosh, you lucky ducky that you can stay outside until 7! As soon as the sun sets it’s freezing here! Stay warm my friend until summer is upon us once again!
Such a simple project. I desperately needs these for my garden.
It sure is Denise! Sometimes they are the best, aren’t they?!! 😉
These are super cute Sam. Every year I say I am going to create a herb garden, they are gorgeous and must smell so nice. Love it.
They sure do smell amazing Leanna! I do love to be able to pick a few fresh s[rigs to add to our meals when cooking!
These are so pretty, Sam. I love the finish. Makes me wish I had a green thumb! 😉
Thank you so much, Kim! They sure were fun to make 🙂
Tidy bit of work, looks really good!
Thank you so much, Richard! They sure were fun to make!
