Garden Plant Markers
Good Morning, Katie here! It might still be cold where some of you live, but here in Texas it’s been nice and warm lately, which is why I’ve started planning out my spring garden. I made these cute garden stakes to mark my plants using Design Memory Craft products, here’s how:
Draw or stamp bunnies (or other cute critter!) onto white cardstock. I freehanded mine using my small black PITT pen.
Color your bunnies. I used my Aquarelles to color them in, and then I went over them with a damp paintbrush to give them the water color look.
Cut them out, you can cut right up against your shape or leave a little bit of white cardstock like I did.Laminate them by sandwiching them between 2 pieces of transparent contact paper, and then trimming them up but leaving about a ¼ edge of contact paper. This will waterproof them.
I used wooden kabob sticks for my stakes, and colored them using some Stampers Big Brush pens. The colors of the big brush pen are still very bright and colorful on wood.
Place a dot of glue on the back of your bunnies and attach the end of your kabob. Let it dry.
