I found this kit called "Marker Stones" several years ago in a garden catalog and thought I would share the idea with my readers. Maybe someone will get inspired and start making some marker stones for gifts for Christmas (which is right around the corner!). I loved the look of bricks with stamped words in them so I bought the kit. Since then I have made several marker stones for my garden and for many more for friends and neighbors. My friend Tina loved hers so much she went out and bought herself a kit. I also bought an extra kit for my daughter so she could make her own.
These stones are not difficult to make and are very easy to customize. You can color them or add small stones and rocks-let your imagination be your guide. I tell you, these vegetable tags will last forever in my garden. I like to arrange them in my beds the season before planting and I also use them to identify my various gardens. Marker stones are also great pet grave markers. The kit comes with many different shapes and styles of letters.
It is never too early to start on Christmas gifts for your favorite gardener or even for yourself-so get to mixing!
