DIY Wine Cork Plant Markers

Get creative with your garden by making your very own DIY wine cork plant markers! Not only will these markers add a touch of charm to your garden, but they are also a great way to repurpose those leftover wine corks. Start by collecting a variety of wine corks, making sure they are clean and dry. You can ask friends or family to save their corks for you or even visit local restaurants or wineries to see if they have any extras. These DIY wine cork plant markers are not only practical but also a fun and eco-friendly way to personalize your garden. Plus, they make for a great conversation starter when guests come over and admire your green thumb. So, gather those wine corks, let your creativity flow, and enjoy the satisfaction of having your very own custom plant markers in your garden.

To make these plant markers here is what you will need.

  • 1 Fine Tip Permanent Marker
  • Wine Corks (one for each plant/row you need to mark)
  • Bamboo, Wood or Metal Skewers or Long Nails (1 per cork)


First, you want to take your marker and write on each cork with the plants that you will be planting. Be sure to write it so you can read the cork when it is upright. Then depending on if you are using wood or bamboo skewers or nails, you will do them two different ways.

If using the wood or bamboo skewers, you will simply place one end of the skewer into the end of the cork. Be sure to have it some stuck in the end that will make the corks right side up, so you can read them. Then stick the other end of the skewer in the ground by the plant or row you are marking.

If using nails or metal skewers, you will be pushing them down through the top of the cork. Push it all the way down so that the head of the nail/skewers is flat on the top of the cork. Then stick it in the ground near the plant or row you are marking.

That is it! These are super easy to do and anyone with no crafting skill at all could make these. Plus I love the look of these. Just adds a little extra touch of special to your garden.
