I Finally Crafted Something.....




I crafted this from a idea I got at this site....Here...I just loved them when I seen them and had to try them out for my garden. So this is my version.... Please leave her some love for her creation while you are there... Anyone that knows me even a little knows I love to recycle things, so this was a perfect project just for me...I will make these to mark all my garden herb and veggies.

Vegetable/ Herb Markers

Alcohol Ink
Bead Wire- Silver or Gold
News Paper
Beads to match
Shrinky Dink
Small Hole Punch

Stack of some kind- Old Silver Ware, Bamboo Stakes, and Throat Lozenges

Graphics used: In a Country Garden by Beth Logan

1.) Lay newspaper out to cover table
2.) Use alcohol inks to color stake of your choice, let dry thoroughly
3.) Print graphics onto shrink plastic, cut out, Punch wholes in areas on top and bottom.
4.) Bake according to directions.
5.) With wire beads attach labels and beads in a decorative manner to secure to stakes.
6.) Secure into dirt for your veggies and herbs.

Will need to be sealed if used in the out doors.
