Herb Garden Marker Craft Project
popsicle sticks, one for each marker
What you do:
Start by cutting the bottom end of each popsicle stick into a point. Then wrap the top section of the popsicle sticks with washi tape. I used complimentary patterns and colors of washi tape for my thyme herb marker, using a solid color of washi tape where I wanted to write the name of the plant. I used scissors to cut around the top edge of the popsicle stick for a cleaner look. Then I simply wrote the name of the herb onto the washi tape with a permanent marker.
Once I had the garden marker the way I wanted, I covered the washi tape decorated portion of the marker if packaging tape and then cut around the popsicle stick to seal it from rain. Alternately, should have some on hand, you could also seal the garden marker with a clear, outdoor acrylic sealer.
