DIY Herb Marker Stone

2 Materials
12 Minutes

Hi there, Hometalk Friends! Today I have a quick project for the garden. There are a few ways you can personalize this simple project according to your preferences--plus, it can be finished in 15 minutes or less!

If you have a good source, you may prefer to use stones you have gathered. I am using a store bought stone. I love the smooth surface and engraved leaf design. Unlike other faux stones I've seen, it isn't resin and it is the same weight as a real stone. Looking for smooth stones? Click here to find smooth stones!

I used self-adhesive herb stencils, but you may prefer to letter your stone freehand. Click here to find the stencils I use!

I like to use Sharpie markers because they weather well outdoors. For this project, I used an ultra-fine point.

Depending on how porous your stone is, be careful not to press too hard to avoid blurring. I usually fill in the letters with the stencil and then go back and touch up the letters by hand. Of course, you can personalize the stones with the names of your favorite herbs, vegetables, or flowers. You may decide to create a whole set, and this would also be a fun project to do with little ones. You could let them paint the rocks first and help them with the lettering.
