I talked about my garden a little while ago, and I thought I’d share yet another update I have made recently. Now that I got everything planted, fertilized and thriving – I realized I needed some garden markers to know what was what because the little plastic printed ones that came with the plant wasn’t cutting it.

I decided it would be the perfect project for none other than the brand new Painters Paint Markers by Elmer’s.

I found these Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers in the craft department for a bargain 1.97$ when I was out shopping, they had a bunch of different colors!

…And the paint stir sticks were a whopping 28 cents!

DIY Garden Markers using paint stir sticks
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • Elmer's Painters Markers
  • Wooden paint stir sticks
  • Spray paint
  • Spray primer
  • Masking Tape
Instructions
  1. - Prep each wooden stick with spray primer
  2. - Once they are primed, spray a foundation color of your choice on each stick
  3. - Once that coat is dry, use the masking tape to cover the bottoms of the sticks
  4. - Spray the sticks again with a contrasting color of your choice
  5. - Once they are dry, get creative with the painters makers and doodle away!

 

Here’s my spray paint setup – a plastic drop cloth held into the ground with garden lights and bounce house stakes!

Then I masked off the bottom of each one so I could add another color.

I had such fun painting these, i did it all while JP was at preschool during the day while I sat on the back patio listening to birds chirping. It was pure therapy, I tell you!!

I wanted a fun, whimsical touch with lots of color for these markers – I am so in love with how they turned out!! Now it’s time to add to the collection becauseI still have a little bit of garden space left…

Here’s where my garden was before the planting begun:
