Name of herb, fruit, or vegetable

These plant labels made from aluminum cans are super cute! source
Be careful with aluminum cans! Here are some tips from the gardener who made these:
“I’ve been cutting and engraving (in reverse) a few with coat hanger stakes. If anyone tries this, please wear gloves to avoid cuts when handling the aluminum. The biggest problem I had was over-handling the thin aluminum and having the folds brake. Fold once after engraving and you’re good to go.”

Using a wood burning tool, you can add text and drawings to any sticks or wood you already have. We cut fallen cedar trees from our farm into small slices, drilled a hole in the top, and then I just hand drew pictures and words on the slices with a
tool like this. I used craft wire we already had to make the supports. I think they turned out pretty cute!
