Totally radish labels

After getting our clay circles ready, we cut the labels out of decal vinyl to create a stencil. Then we colored in the letters with a paint marker. The exact marker we used is linked below, but you can use whatever color of marker you prefer for the lettering on your labels.

Once you have assembled your clay garden labels, you can use them over and over again. To make sure they will hold up well outside, we recommend painting them with a sealant to protect them.

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tips: We used the vinyl as a stencil for our painted letters; however you could also use the vinyl letters as labels instead of painting. You will still want to coat all surfaces of the clay with dishwasher safe Mod Podge after adding the labels to protect them from the elements.

Other projects shown: Crepe paper basil plant, crepe paper rosemary, and crepe paper silver dollar eucalyptus
