This is a guest post written by my buddy Heather from Massachusetts. It’s a good thing we don’t live next door to each other because we would never get a moments rest. We’d be too busy making arts and crafts and gardening 24/7. 😉
The great thing about garden markers is the sheer creative variety! Mavis made these sweet Chalkboard Garden Markers these clever plant markers made from Broken Pots, and these stamped popsicle stick plant markers well and the creative juices started flowing. 😉
Last summer when my daughter and I made a trip to a local beach north of Boston, which was filled with the very common Atlantic Surf Clam shell. So of course we brought a few home.
- Shell or other item you’d like to use as a marker
- Paint (I used Martha Stewart Acrylic Paint)
- Paint brush
- Mod Podge Spray (11-oz. Super High Shine Spray 1450, this stuff is saweeet)
- Gorilla Glue
- Metal (clothes) Hangers
Use a pencil to draw your design on a shell. Then paint on the final design, let it dry, use the Mod Podge spray.
Handy-Dandy-Tip: make sure you spell check yourself! “rasberries” is actually spelled “raspberries”. 😉
Finally Gorilla glue the metal hangars to the shell, and let it dry for a day. Then, very carefully, bend the wire around your garden box posts.
