One of my favorite things about warmer weather is that it’s time to plant flowers and herbs! It’s particularly exciting this year, since we’re in a new house that has more garden space than I’ve ever had before. I planted five herbs: basil, cilantro, rosemary, lavender, and mint, so I thought it was only appropriate to make up some garden markers to label them all.

Here’s how I did it…


ImpressArt Soft Strike Pewter Blanks {I used the flower and square shapes}
ImpressArt Juniper Lowercase Alphabet Stamps
Stamping Hammer
Steel Stamping Block
– Black enamel paint and small paintbrush
– Jewelry Polishing Cloth
– 20 gauge {or thicker} copper wire
– Needle nose pliers and wire cutters
– Painter’s tape

Step 1: Tape your blank to the stamping block and stamp the letter of your herb name, beginning in the center.

*If you’ve never tried metal stamping before, take a look at my Beginner Stamping Tutorial which has step by step instructions and photos to walk you through the whole process!*

Step 2: Paint the stamped letter areas and wipe off the excess.

Step 3: Cut a piece of wire and flatten it with your hammer. Bend it with needle nose pliers near the top and create a loop where the stamped blank can hang. Then, use your pliers to create a zig zag effect on the bottom section of the wire. You can do this as large or small and as angular or rounded as you want, it’s just for decoration.

Step 4: Attach your blanks to your wires and place them in your garden!

  1. That looks like a cute idea for a cat tag as well! I grow weird herbs, like boxwood basil, cinnamon basil, pineapple sage, and lemon thyme in addition to the pantry staples. Be careful that your mint doesn’t take over the garden!

  2. How have these held up over the last year? I am interested in making some as a gift for my mom’s new place, but wondering how they hold up to the elements.
