Easy Clay Garden Markers

very spring without fail, I get the gardening bug. It’s a good kind of bug where I watch the snow melt and the earth begin to awaken after a long slumber. I scour seed catalogs, plan my gardens, and even begin potting herbs up on the windowsill that I will eventually transfer to the garden after the danger of frost has passed.

Each year, I also create new garden markers for the season. This year I thought that it would be fun to create some customizable ones out of bakeable clay. We had some left over from a school project and it was the perfect easy project for a very rainy spring day.

For this craft you will need:

  • bakeable clay
  • small metal “cookie cutter” shapes
  • rolling pin
  • dried floral stems for texturizing
  • small letter stamps
  • bamboo skewer
  • oven
  • cookie sheet
  • wire coat hanger
  • wire clippers
  • pliers
