A quick DIY and tutorial - plant markers

I finally got around trying something I've been wanting to get to for a while. I made reusable plant markers. This was a super easy and quick project, all you need is blackboard paint and some clothes pins.

The pins I got were bamboo pins, but I don't see why you couldn't use any kind you want. The only requirement is that there's a flat surface you can write on.

Line up your pins and add the paint. I used spraypaint and did 2-3 coats on each side. So the work itself is really fast, but you need adequate time in between coats to make sure it's dried. Follow the instructions on the paint can.

Once the pins are dry, use regular chalk to write the name of the plant and you're done.

So, what do you think? I'm going to use these all over the place, not just for the plants. You could use these in the pantry too, mark the date you opened a bag or something... What would you use them for?
