Equipment

  • Rolling Pin
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Butter knife for cutting the clay
  • Round cookie cutters
  • Plant stakes
  • Straw or bamboo skewer for making the hole

Ingredients

  • 1 lb polymer clay, white
  • ABC stamp letters
  • Weather-proof sealer

  • Cut polymer clay into pieces using a butter knife to make it more workable Roll the polymer clay between two pieces of parchment paper until it’sa bout ¼ an inch thick. I use two pieces so I won’t get the clay on the rolling pin.
  • Roll the polymer clay between two pieces of parchment paper until it’s about ¼ an inch thick. I use two pieces so I won’t get the clay on the rolling pin.
  • Use the cookie cutters to cut it into a circle. Remove the excess dough from the outside and remove the cookie cutter before stamping.
  • Stamp beginning over on the far left side to make sure you can fit the whole word.
  • When stamped, bake the polymer clay according to package directions. This will help to harden the clay.
  • Once the DIY plant markers have cooled, spray or paint them with a sealer and let that dry 24 hours.
  • Turn the heads of the plant stakes so the markers would hang nicely and then hang and add to the beds.
