DIY Vegetable Garden Stakes

It's spring and that means it's time to get outside and get working in the garden. I love that my boys love to help me work in the garden and take care of the plants. We do not have the greenest thumb but it's fun to see the plants grow and our hard work pay off.

Last spring we planted a lot of vegeables in our garden but after awhile, I forgot what we planted and we had a lot of questions as to how to feed and care for them. So, this year I create these simple DIY vegetable garden stakes to help us remember where and what we planted.

Now, when we head outside to water and feed our plants, I know exactly what we have growing and what is not fairing as well. Plus, we planted some seeds as well and now we know exactly where those seeds are. This is a great craft for the kids to help with as well.

What you need:

  • Craft paint in your choice of colors
  • Flat wood craft stakes from craft store
  • Scissors
  • Paint brushes
  • Vegetable pictures and/or words printed off from computer
  • Mog podge sealant

How to make:
1. Paint wood stakes with desired colors and let dry.

2. Cut out printed words and vegetables.

3. Using Mog Podge, glue paper onto wood stakes and let sit to dry.
4. Once dried, apply another coat of mod podge over front, back and all sides of stakes to create a waterproof seal.

5. Once dried completely, place in garden to identify your vegetables.

I was able to complete this simple craft in just a few hours while the boys were at school. I love how they came out. This would also be a great craft to have the kids help with.
