do it yourself

Today I have a nice DIY project for your garden or to make for a gardening friend. We are going to make a set of clay plant markers.
Roll out terra cotta air-dry clay to about 1/8-inch in thickness. Use a cookie cutter or the rim of a glass to cut circles about 2.5 inches in diameter.
To stamp on the plant names I used a set of alphabet letter stamps (Amazon $12)
For the longer plant names it helped to figure out where to start the 1st letter before stamping so I had enough space for the entire word.
Use a chopstick, skewer, or straw to poke a hole in the center near the top for hanging. Let clay air-dry.
To seal the clay plant markers I sprayed them with a clear glaze.
Hang on small metal plant stakes. (Amazon) and head out to your garden.
