I love my garden markers.
They took some time, and I realized I needed way more than I originally planned, so I have been buying them over time.
To make them, I cut the names out using my silhouette. I weeded the positive and left the negative. I then put them on the slate tags and taped the edges, and taped them down with painters tape to a flattened cardboard box. I used spray paint and very LIGHTLY and evenly sprayed them. If there is too much paint, it will bleed under the stencil.
They turned out wonderfully!!!
