We made the beautiful clay pot remember what
we planted in each pot.  If you want these to last
use something more sturdy then a popsicle stick,
you might use a metal garden stake. These made
it through about one season with the sun so they
ended up more of a craft project then useful for
marking plants.
Clay Pot Garden Markers
Step 1
Gather your Clay Pot Saucers.  You can
purchase these at most Craft Supply
Stores, or even Walmart.  Clean and Dry
them.
Step 2
Use your Hot Glue Gun to attach the
Jumbo Popsicle Stick to the back of the
Saucers.
Step 3
Use your Puffy Paint to draw in pictures of the
different fruits and vegetables you'll be
growing in your garden.  This is for Tomatoes
(see other suggestions below)
Step 4
Use your colored gemstones to add some
color in to represent the different fruits and
vegetables.  (We snagged
store)
Step 5
Use a paint pen, or a garden marker to
write in the name of the plant.
All Done!
Take you're beautiful Garden Markers and
add them to your garden!  Make below for
more design ideas
Sweet Pea
Make a pea pod with the puffy paint,
then add in some green gemstones for
the little peas.  Super Cute!

Zinnia
If you're growing flowers, you can use
