Rock labels

Make your own rock labels

Are you growing your own veg or planting some flowers in the garden? Here’s a good way to remember what you’ve planted. These rock labels last for years and you can use rocks already in your garden.

Rock labels

For this craft you’ll need:

  • Medium/large rocks (try to pick ones with a smooth surface)
  • Paints
  • Paintbrushes
  • Pen

Step 1: Prepare your rocks

  • Before you start painting, clean your rocks and make sure they’re completely dry.
  • Sketch out your design to make sure it will fit.

Step 2: Painting

  • Once you’re happy with your design, start adding colour. You don’t have to stick to the veg or flower you’re labelling, pretty background designs work too. Then leave them to dry.

Step 3: Labelling

  • When the paint is completely dry, you can add any details with pen, and don’t forget to add your label. Then they’re ready to place in your garden.
