After cutting myself numerous times trying to make plant markers out of pie plates and cans, I finally said to heck with it. So I grabbed my aluminum foil and started playing. After fashioning an aluminum marker that was heavy duty and I could actually write on I started perfecting my technique. Astonishingly enough, they really do work! So here goes.

What you need:

Heavy duty aluminum foil
A smooth something for smoothing out folds
Hole punch
Table in front of the tv
Really boring tv show you can listen to and not pay too much attention whilst working.

Step 1

Pull off a sheet of aluminum about 8 to 10 inches long, the length really doesn’t matter.

Step 2

Fold that in half and make a crease

Step 3

Open it up and tear it in half along the crease.
