I was going to make something else for day 8 of Crafty October, but as we are decorating at home, everything is everywhere, and I just couldn’t find what I needed in the stacks of boxes! What I did find, however, was some wooden ice-lolly sticks, so I took out some rubber stamps and ink, grabbed some raffia and created some plant markers for when I grow my own veggies next spring!
I tied a length of raffia about half way down the ice-lolly stick, just to add a bit of interest really. I then stamped a variety of different veggie names onto the end of the stick (I worked backwards from the end!)
They seem to take forever to dry! I’m not a rubber stamp aficionado, so maybe I need a special ink to stamp onto wood?! But any way, several hours later, and I’ve carefully painted some varnish over the top to help seal them from the elements.
I didn’t grow pumpkins this year *sad face* but I thought it would be fun to show a plant marker in action!
Have fun creating your own plant markers :)
