Mark your gardens with these hand lettered vegetable plant labels and never forget what you planted.
I’ve been out of a normal working routine ever since getting back from my Ireland/Italy vacation. Sure I’ve been home for 3 weeks now, but those 3 weeks have been non stop! It even included a quick trip to visit family a few hours again over Memorial Day.
I’ll be honest, I’ve also just been in a bit of a creative rut. It happens to the best of us from time to time, and eventually, I can shake it. To help get me out of my funk I’ve been working in my yard a lot! In fact, the first thing I did when I got back from vacation (besides loads of laundry and sleep) was build a few raised garden beds for vegetables. It’s been several seasons since I’ve had my own veggie garden that wasn’t just a pepper plant or two in a pot.
On one of my frequent trips to Target I happened to find these metal plant tags in the Dollar Spot and was immediately inspired to create some hand lettered vegetable plant labels to mark my new plants! Do you ever forget what you planted and where?
I’ve made the SVG and PNG files into free downloads just for signing up for my weekly newsletters.

How to create Hand Lettered Plant Tags
These hand lettered labels were created using the iPad pro 10.5″, Apple Pencil and Procreate app, and then turned into SVG files using Adobe Illustrator. Make sure you check out the tutorial on how to turn lettering into SVG files!
After turning them into SVG files, I cut them with a Silhouette Cameo on permanent outdoor vinyl. You’ll want to use an outdoor vinyl if this is the route you choose to go. You could also cut them onto stencil vinyl, and use a permanent oil base paint marker to fill in the plant tags.
Seriously, how cute are these plant markers?!
