Diy garden markers anyone can do – check out how to make easy painted rocks for garden markers you can use in your garden as cute diy garden decor, or as backyard decoration.
I love gardens but currently, we have none. Apart from the many avocado plants (yes, I kind of like avocado – here 🙂 on the balcony, and some lemon balm (see? we used some to make ice tea), and a beautiful lemon tree (with two unintentional but lovely and tiny pine trees sprouting from the lemon tree pot). In fact, we have quite a lot of greenery, when I put all these together. But I digress.
Meet our … plant buddies.
What I meant to say was that while there is no (edible) garden we could make the garden markers for, there is no reason for not doing just that. We just needed to come up with a different name for the painted rocks, and ‘plant buddies’ sounded just perfect.
And just in case you were wondering – the two green rocks above are peas.
Let me add here that we were making these diy garden markers as a family craft activity, hence adapting the paint type to our (then) toddler. We used watercolors, so these painted rocks for the garden won’t hold a long time. But painting rocks into these cute plant markers was so much fun! If you want to make your rock painting crafts permanent, use acrylic paint.
These painted rocks for garden are such a fun and easy thing to make as a family: collect several rocks, paint them in different colors and you’ve got yourself simple DIY garden markers. They are fun to make – even when you don’t need them 🙂
From now on, our balcony plants will always have company. Well, not always. They will probably hold only through the next few watering of plants. I avoided it as the paint always ends up all over M’s body when painting, so I used what I think is safest – watercolors. If you want to make them permanent, use acrylic paint.
