Ornate plant labels

Plant lables for all the herbs and spices in our yard!

Each label was handmade. I couldn't print them because inkjet printer ink isn't weatherproof (sun, rain, snow makes ink fade :( ) so they all had to be made by hand separately using waterproof ink and to protect them a bit more I coated them with weatherproof varnish.

I did make a really big (20 x 15cm) stamp ([link]) from lino so I could stamp on the borders though :) makes things a bit less labour intensive *phew*

Each tag measures approx. 7,5 x 5 cm

I'm still working on the stakes to hang them on and plant them next to the according herbs.
