How to make rock garden markers

If you are planting a fruit or vegetable garden, garden markers are a requirement. They help you remember what plants are growing where so you can make sure to give all the different plants the right type of care.
Although you can simply staple seed packets onto wooden stakes and shove them into the ground, why not make something much cuter? With these markers, the garden beds will be looking adorable in no time.
