These cute little plant labels are fully customizable, and would be a great activity to involve the kids in… plus with Mother’s Day only a few days away, they’d make for an easy last-minute gift or addition to a pretty store bought plant
See the full tutorial after the jump…
You will need:
- Oven-bake clay
- Cookie cutters (mine are from Ikea)
- A stamp you can customize
- Wooden craft sticks (mine are the jumbo size)
- A hot glue gun
- Baking paper
- Rolling pin (not in the photo)
Set up your stamp to spell out the word you want on your plant label. Practice stamping it first on a spare piece of clay to make sure spacing/spelling is right, then stamp onto your cut-out clay shape.
Take a wooden craft stick, and cut the bottom of it into a point using the scissors. If yours is too hard or thick to cut, it’s not a problem.
Once the clay shape has cooled, use the glue gun to run a line of glue down on the back of it, and quickly stick the wooden craft stick to it, holding down firmly until it’s dried.
*If there are children involved, please make sure it’s an adult doing the hot gluing*
That’s it! Stick your little plant label into a pot, stamp someone’s name on it and give it as a gift.. up to you!
