I made this for my sister & she always grows catnip for her cat Oreo. I thought it’d be a nice touch to add a pic of a kitty that looked like him on the marker of the plant that’s just for him : )
You’ll need chalk board paint, paint brush, tape, Mod podge, printed pictures or words, and a few skinny tiles from the hardware store.
First find pictures you might like to use & shrink them down to the size of the tile your using. I searched google photos & also printed the names of plants.
After cutting them to size apply the Mod podge to the back. Then place on to the top of the tile. Apply more Mod podge over the top. Wipe away any excess & allow to dry .
While waiting for the glue to dry, use the tape to mark off the top of one of your other tiles. This space will need to be big enough to be able to write the plant name with your chalk. Now apply chalk board paint. You’ll probably only need 2 coats, but let the first dry completely before adding the next.
That’s it! Stick them right in to your potted plants. The nice thing about these markers are you can use them right now for the plants your starting inside , or the ones that maybe sitting on your windowsill.
Now I just have to keep my cats from eating the plants before I get a chance to plant them outside!
She looks pretty guilty don’t you think?
