New Wives Club #24: make rustic plant labels from bamboo canapé forks


Rustic plant markers made from bamboo canape forks

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last New Wives Club post, mainly because as I’ve said before I’m really picky about the ideas I share on this feature, and consequently I find it a challenge to find something blogworthy each Sunday.

I came across this fab idea for using bamboo canapé forks/sticks as plant markers.  By coincidence, I have rather a lot of these exact bamboo canapé forks as I bought a bulk amount for a dinner party my mum had a couple of years ago.  They seem endless, and now I know what to use them for!

With a little bit of stamping creativity (a mini alphabet stamp set is vital) you can customise your bamboo canapé forks to become seedling labels.  Wooden lolly sticks work in a similar way, but these are just a bit more pretty.  I think a homemade set of these would make a lovely gift, and if you don’t want to make them I discovered they are made by an Etsy business called Wood and Grain (who also by the way make gorgeous other items and lots for weddings).

Don’t forget, there’s lots of lovely DIY ideas that have been features in the New Wives Club so do have a look and see if there’s any other you fancy having a go at.
