For years I used the basic copper garden markers. They looked great at first, but over time they started to look a bit too rustic. They do hold up better than the plastic markers in my opinion. All of my plastic garden markers snapped off at the base after a few seasons.

      1. APPLY GARDEN MARKER LABELS TO CANNING LIDS

      Print a set of these FREE Printable Garden Markers onto adhesive label paper. You can use Avery Template 22817 round labels or full sheet labels that you cut out. Peel and stick the labels to some used canning jar lids. Feel free to handwrite text for specific vegetable varieties too!

      2. NAIL HOLES IN THE CANNING LIDS

      Put an old piece of wood onto your table to protect it. Gently tap a nail into the top of the canning lid to create a hole. The hole just needs to be large enough for the coat hanger wire to slide into.

      3. CUT COAT HANGER WIRE

      Make 3 cuts to your coat hanger with a wire cutter. Cut the bottom once in the center of the hanger. Then cut each side of the hanger about an inch above where it starts to curve to create a hook.

      4. BEND WIRE TO FORM HOOK

      Use needle-nose pliers to bend the end of the wire to form a hook.

      5. HOOK CANNING LIDS ONTO WIRE

      Slide the decorated canning lids into the nail hole and hang in your garden.

       

      NOTE: Since these are paper labels, they will wear off in the garden over time. You could add a sealant to help keep them more water resistant. 

      You can reuse the canning lids year after year and apply new labels too. Just soak the old lids in water for a few minutes until saturated. Then the old paper label should slide right off the lids. Apply a new label, mark the hole, then hang in your garden.
