Welcome to a little DIY Garden Décor and to Decorate and Craft with us.

 I am sharing a garden vignette as well as a little tutorial on how to make a decorative Garden Label.

Today On Craft With US I am joining three other talented Makers for their spin on garden Décor.

Links to their creative garden projects will be at the end of this post. 

This time of the year it seems like everyone has gardening on their minds and what better way to embrace the garden in all of it's beautiful glory than to make some economical and useful décor.

DIY Garden Décor Replaces Plastic Gardening Labels 

I enjoyed making this DIY Garden Décor and Gardening Label and creating this vintage vignette at the edge of my cutting garden. I think both of these elements really dress up my garden! 

You can see how pretty the label looks in the Cosmos row at the end of this post in my video.

You see I typically use popsicle sticks or plastic gardening labels to mark what I have planted in each of my garden rows.

This project elevates my garden!
