It was a whopping 3 degrees outside the other day which, if you ask anyone who experienced this brutal winter, is a huge, mega, massive win. I swear I saw people roaming the streets in shorts! What I’m getting at you ask? Spring is on it’s way. I can feel it. It’s in the air. Which means that it’s now time to get started on those gardens. And step one on that garden to-do list? These DIY gilded garden markers, of course!
Roll out a ball of clay on a flat surface, into a smooth, flat layer about ¼” thick. Use a knife to cut out 1 1/2” x 1 3/4” rectangles and place these on a cookie sheet. Poke a hole in the center of one end of each rectangle with a chopstick or pencil.
