Inspired by mom’s Make Your Own Buttons post, I decided to try my hand at making her some garden markers for Mother’s Day. It was a success! They turned out great and now I must make myself a set. I used the same premo clay in ecru.
Just as mom did when she made her buttons, I used a cookie cutter and cake decorating tip to cut the hole in the top. I purchased some fancy stamps to letter the names of herbs. I love these stamps! I’m sure I’ll find lots of uses for them in the future!
Using the color Raw Sienna acrylic paint mixed with a little bit of water, we lightly brushed each marker then baked them according to the package directions. I think when I make my set of garden markers I will try a different color. I thought a teal wash would look awesome as well!
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
