3. Color in your garden marker as desired with colored pencils. The darker you color, the more vibrant your finished herb marker will be. (My favorite pencils to use are PrismaColor Pencilsfor their rich, bold and blend-able color.
4. Once you’ve colored in your garden stakes to your liking, cut them out along the outer edge. Then place on brown paper on a cookie sheet.
5. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 minutes and remove from the oven.
6. Allow your shrunk herb marker to cool for a minute or two then remove from the cookie sheet.
7. If desired, you may spray your finished piece with a clear acrylic spray for extra protection.
8. Place your completed herb marker in a pot to mark your plant or in your garden to mark your rows.
