If you’re starting a garden, handmade markers can add a personal touch. Use painted stones or stamped clay to mark your plantings. An easy Spring craft to make and add to your colorful garden. You’ll always know which plants are what. There’s nothing worse than pulling up a carrot for your fresh green salad and getting something entirely different. Take away the mystery with creative handmade markers.
