When planting seeds in the spring it’s super easy to forget what you’ve planted once the seeds are under the soil. So I created this darling pea pod to mark our seeds this year.

My essentials for clay crafts:
- We love using this Sculpey Polymer Oven Bake Clay for all of our projects.
- This clay shaping tool kit is a must have for clay crafting!
- These paint brushes are ideal for most craft surfaces and a great price!
- This rolling storage cart helps to keep our craft supplies organized.
Supplies that you will need:
- parchment paper
- baking sheet
- polymer clay in light green, dark green and black
- clay cutting and shaping tools
- black sharpie fine tip marker
- white glue
- white paint
- mod podge
- paint brush
How to make this polymer clay pea pod craft:
1. Form a 1 1/2 cm dark green ball and press it into a teardrop shape about 5cm long. Form 5 – ½ cm green balls. Roll two tiny black balls.
2. Place the balls in a line and wrap the dark green leaf behind them to form a pod.
3. Form two indents for eyes into each of the peas with the stylus. Pierce a hole in the bottom with a toothpick.
4. Bake as directed on the package. For me that’s about 20 minutes at 220 degrees.
5. Glue the black balls on for eyes, add a white dot with the paint, a smile with the marker and seal with mod podge.
6. Add a toothpick to create a little stake to press into the soil. Now you have the perfect clay plant marker!
