Wine Cork Herb Markers #spdl

I actually saw these last year and thought that they were adorable and in all honesty I've just been down right too lazy to do it.This is the original pin.

Since winter has been dragging ass in these here parts, I have had no motivation to do anything outdoorsey until this past Monday! It was 65 degrees and sunny!
I also stopped by Christina's blog again, and I loved her herb garden so she also inspired me. 
Here is my version!

First, I went to home depot and bought my Herbs and pot to put them in. And just so you know, I do not pronounce herbs as "erbs", the "H" is there for a reason and I always use it.
 Plant your Herbs.

Drink your wine and gather your corks, along with shish kabob skewers and a drill. Make sure you have just as many corks as herbs. Oh and grab a sharpie.

  Use a bit and pre-drill holes into your corks for the skewers. 3/16th's was the size bit that I used.

Label your corks to match your herbs
And then stick them in the pot to ID your herbs! 

Linking up today with Katie and Steph!  



  1. I have been wanting to do the one where you flatten the spoon and tap in the letters but this looks just as adorable and way easier! Thanks for the new idea I will def. be adding this to my garden this year!
    Stop by some time

  2. H-erbs. DYING! Love that you pronounce the H hahah

    this is such a cute idea! I seriously need to buy my own little herbs...sometimes the ones at the grocery store are just naaaaaasty

    i went thru this entire post sounding out the H.


  3. What people don't pronounce the H? Say what?! This is a cute idea. My yard is way to small for a garden so this would be more manageable for me. Very cute!

  4. I totally don't pronounce the H and I laughed all the way through this post because every time I read "herbs" I pronounced the H just for you... sounds funny to me! Anyways, super cute idea!

  5. oh i love this! this is too cute!! haha erbs.

  6. oh mah gahhhhhhhh. I have a drawer full of wine corks. looooooove this idea! and I love my fellow wino!

  7. A) come buy me some herbs that won't die in the Houston heat
    B) come make me a planter thing to put the herbs in
    C) make me these cork labels
    please and thank you!

  8. Girl that is so cute, and so easy! That's my kind of craft project. I can't be doing stuff that takes hours and tons of patience and all that! Love this though. Great job! Visiting today from the SPD link-up :)

  9. Nice job! This is fun and simple. No 'H'!!! :)

  10. This is so cute, my boss has all sorts of herbs and I had to memorize what they looked like haha this would for sure help!

  11. I haven't seen this one yet! I've got a giant vase full of wine corks. Going to give this a try!

  12. If I actually planted stuff I would totally steal this idea! Turned out great!

  13. I am always looking for ideas to use up the pile of wine corks I have! This is perfect for my garden (can you call two plants a garden?) :) Thanks for sharing the idea, I am pinning it!

  14. Super adorable! My Dad and sister are in the process of planting a garden for this summer and I know they're gonna plant some {H}erbs, so I might have to get on drinking some wine to collect some corks to recreate this for them! ;) haha.

  15. I love this! It is such a cute idea..

  16. These are so adorable! We had a herb garden in the UK but had to leave it behind. Now I'm wishing we had one here so I could do this.

  17. This is SUCH a cute idea, now I just need herbs!

    Sparkles and Shoes
