Clay Garden Markers

Being that I have been home, as we all are right now, I have been spending a lot of time in my garden. I needed to make some new garden markers for my garden beds so I thought, what a fun activity for the kids to do with me. Its super easy and a great way to spend time together as a family.


What you will need:

  • Oven baked clay
  • Rolling pin
  • Butter knife
  • Rubber letter stamps


  • Break piece of clay and form into a 1 – 1.5 inch ball (each piece is one marker)
  • Then with your hand, gently roll the clay into a coil till it becomes long and slender (see picture below). About 5 inches long.
  • Next take your rolling pin and carefully flatten the coil to about .25 inch thick.
  • With your stamp, gently press down, being careful not to press to hard to thin or weaken out the clay too much.
  • Take your butter knife and cut the top off at an angle.
  • Carefully place markers on baking sheet.
  • Place in oven and bake per the instructions on the package of the clay.
  • Let it cool completley before placing in your garden.
  • Remember to be gentle as the clay isn’t the most sturdy but def does the job and looks quite cute in your garden.
