A local urban farm has an annual plant sale and craft show every April, and I will be having a booth. I’ve seen the painted rocks used as garden markers on Pinterest and have wanted to make some. I think they will be great for my garden show booth. I found a few beside an old shed, but will need to buy some more before the show. I can always practice with these.
Gather all your supplies. I am using the patio paint since these will be used outdoors. The glass marker will also hold up outside. You can also paint the words on, but I am better at using a pen, it’s easier to control.
You don’t have to paint your rocks according to the color of the plant or vegetable you are going to identify. But, when I was thinking about what was to planted in my garden in April, I chose purple for eggplant, green for bell peppers, red for tomatoes, and the yellow will be in a bucket with my thyme. Red could have geraniums painted on it, lavender on purple etc .
Once dry, I wrote the names on. With the end of the paint brush, I made little dots in the shape of a flower to dress them up a bit.
