Clay Plant Markers

Spring is finally here! And that means we'll soon be planting our gardens.
 Herbs are some of the most rewarding plants to grow. They add beauty and fragrance to our garden. And, there’s nothing better than fresh picked herbs to add flavor to our food. 
I've shared some DIY plant markers in the past...

But, these may be the easiest yet to create...

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. 
Knead Sculpey oven bake clay until it is soft and easy to work with. Roll the clay out to 1/4 inch thickness.
Use cookie cutters to get the shapes you want.
Press metal skewers into the back of the clay.

Place the markers on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Press letter beads into the clay to spell out the herbs you'll be planting.
Bake the plant markers in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, leaving the skewers & beads in place. Don't worry... the beads won't melt.
Once baked, the skewers and beads are set firmly in place.

Stick the skewers into the dirt & watch your garden grow.

  1. I just love the fork and cork garden markers and I know I have an every-increasing supply of corks to use for them! Thanks for posting all of these ideas. I'm from Maine so won't need garden markers until May but right now DH and I are on a road trip through the South. We love this part of the country. In fact, just yesterday, we drove through your home state of Georgia on our way from Florida to our present campsite in the Charleston, SC area. I have a dear friend who loves in Rome, GA and, last year we took the camper over there to visit her. I enjoy following your blog and have it on my sidebar for others to see. Hugs, Cheryl

  2. Thank you for your prayers for my son. I appreciate that very much. He is at home now healing and doing better. These clay plant markers are so cool. And I love how you spelled out the words, "how does your garden grow." Very creative.

    Enjoy these Spring days.
