Garden label DIY with Cricut

Updated: May 24

I revealed our little gardening area the other day and mentioned that I had DIY'd some adorable little garden labels.

And today I'm back to share exactly how I did it along with a free printable for you to print your own garden labels!


Supplies:

- Cricut Joy

- black smart vinyl

- transfer tape

- Cricut Joy starter tool set

- wooden garden picks


The first thing I did was to create my SVG cut file, but I've already done that for you! You can open the exact file I used right here in the Cricut Design Space! Once you've done that you can delete any labels you don't need. Then it's time to click "make it".

I used smart vinyl which is such a game changer- no more struggling to put vinyl onto a printing mat! So I was able to select "without mat" here.

I selected my type of vinyl (black permanent smart vinyl), loaded it into my Joy, and then off it went cutting away! When it was done cutting all that was left to do was weed the text and remove all the parts I didn't need.

Then I smoothed my transfer tape over the top to pick up the vinyl.

Peeled the backing off.

And then smoothed the word onto my wooden garden pick.

And peeled it off!

And that was it! It couldn't have been simpler and I love how they turned out- so cute and super easy + fast. So much cuter than the plastic labels that came with my little plants. Or if you're planting from seeds, these are even more necessary so you remember what you put where!

Let me know what you think! Are you planting a garden this spring? And if so, would you try this project?

Now that I've tackled this project on the Cricut Joy I'm eager to try out more projects- it's perfect for labeling and I would love to re-label my pantry or maybe even our game bins with some prettier labels!
