Herb Markers

As usual I go shopping for one thing and come home with whole bag full of projects from my favorite fabric and craft store.  I was in the wood aisle looking at large letters when I saw these little wooden flower shapes and it hit me.  Herb markers!  I have been looking for something cute to add to the herb planter on the patio and I found it!  

Both sides of the flowers were painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paint in graphite.  Then I glued the flowers to the flat sticks with Elmer’s Wood Glue.  The wooden sticks were next to the dowels and I though the flat surface would be easier to glue to the flowers. After the glue dried I wrote the herb names with a white paint pen and drew some leaves on each one.

Dottie came outside to get some sun while I put the markers into place.

I will be giving the chives and the parsley a serious haircut when I finish this blog. They are looking a little wild!
