I finally managed to put in the herb garden I've been dreaming about forever, so I figured I had to make some pretty plant stakes in to mark which herb was which.



I made these out of polymer clay and armature wire.


Here's them after they came out of the oven and then had acrylic paint rubbed into the stamped letters.


And here's one in use.

I'm pretty wild about them, but I think next time I'd try to handle them a little less. With the stamping and then bending the wire around them I'm not sure how that's possible, but there must be a way.

Thanks for looking!

Oooh! You just gave me an idea for my sister's Christmas gift! She makes pottery, so she can make a set out of stoneware, but I can make her a DIY kit with: a small set of alphabet stamps so she can stamp her own plant names, a template to cut out the shape of the marker, some seeds, and a gift certificate to a local nursery. Then, I can pack it in a flower pot! It'll be the perfect complement to the 5-gallon bucket garden caddy she's also getting.

Thanks so much for posting this- you've totally inspired me! Cheesy

Beautiful! If I saw those in a store, I'd be sorely tempted to buy them. I may have to steal your idea when I get the herb garden of MY dreams, if that's quite alright with you. Smiley
