Day 115 – Cork Herb Labels


After I made my sweet herb garden, I wanted a way to label my herbs so I could keep track of what was what. I dove into my collection of wine cork crafts and found this gem; Labeling Herbs with Corks! I absolutely love collecting wine corks. I also love wine, so it’s been rather easy for me to build up a nice collection.

All you need is a few wine corks, some skewers, and of course an herb garden. The sharp end of the skewer goes into the cork and you can place the other end right in the soil.

Aren’t they fun? I’m pretty pumped about my new herb garden!

  1. I just stumbled upon your blog, and I’m so glad I did! What did you use to write on the corks? Is a Sharpie strong enough to withstand the elements?

  2. Great idea. How do you get the corks so clean looking…especially the ones used with red wine? Thanks.

  3. I love this idea. It would be perfect for gift giving!

  4. I also found this on Pinterest a while back and already did it. Sad to say my Sharpie marker ran… no more labels. Plus the wooden skewers kind of rotted and broke off in a few of the plants. Not to be a Debbie Downer – here’s my fix. I used a thicker and darker marker the second time (plus real corks – I used those fake corks that come in my favorite $4 bottles of wine the first time – I’m classy – I know). I went back to same skewers, just because that’s all I had. But I’m on the look out for a new idea…Maybe old forks with the cork stuck on the tines???

    By the way, love your blog. You get to so many more pins that I do!

  5. I have these set up in my garden right now too! I love how they look and a good use for my bag of corks just waiting for a project.

  6. Very cute… now can you teach me how to grow my own herbs?
