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.
…And the paint stir sticks were a whopping 28 cents!
All you really need to create this craft is:
|DIY Garden Markers using paint stir sticks||
- Elmer’s Painters Markers
- Wooden paint stir sticks
- Spray paint
- Spray primer
- Masking Tape
- – Prep each wooden stick with spray primer
- – Once they are primed, spray a foundation color of your choice on each stick
- – Once that coat is dry, use the masking tape to cover the bottoms of the sticks
- – Spray the sticks again with a contrasting color of your choice
- – 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…
….I’m thinking pumpkins are next!
Here’s where my garden was before the planting begun:
And here it is now with my garden and garden markers!
I even have a couple of little green strawberries growing!
I can’t wait to finish making more of them!
