First I need to say that I hate these.
In all my years of crafting I’ve never used Sculpey clay. Now I know why.
There are pins all over Pinterest that are so cute and I really thought this would be easy.
Turns out, I’m not good with clay.
I thought I’d just form them into cute little stakes, write the plant names on them and then bake them. I mean, I did do that, they just weren’t cute.
Once they were baked I brushed on some paint, making sure it got into the letters, and then wiped it off. Once the paint was dry I sealed them so they would stand up to the elements.
I really don’t know why I spent this much time on them, I knew I wasn’t going to like them.
They work, I know which plants are where, but I don’t like how they look.
I found the clay at Wal-Mart for 97¢ each and I had everything else on hand so I’m out less than $2.00 for this failed project, thankfully!
