Gettin' Crafty: Oil cloth garden markers
Oil cloth (a small piece will work just fine) Scissors Hot glue, fabric glue, or strong, all-purpose glue Chopsticks Chip clips Permanent marker
1. Lay out the oil cloth. On the backside, draw a large triangle. Each side of the triangle should be about 2 1/2 inches long.
2. Cut out the triangle.
3. Break a chopstick in half. Position the chopsick on one end of the fabric triangle with about a ¼ inch border on the end.
4. Liberally apply the glue to either side of the chopstick. Roll the fabric border around the chopstick.
5. Now, you should have wrapped the chopstick with gluey fabric. Put the chip clips on the chopstick, holding the fabric in place.
6. Let in dry for thirty minutes, or until you believe the glue is secure.
7. Write the names of the herbs/flowers/vegetables you have sown on the fabric flag, and mark your territory.
You're sure to be the envy of all the plots at the community garden.
