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
- cookie sheet
- wire coat hanger
- wire clippers
