DIY herb sticks made from FIMO
Is gardening your hobby? Then this FIMO DIY idea is just right for you. With this simple tutorial, you can quickly create plant sticks for herbs in your home. With their natural design, they are the perfect decoration for your green herb pots. Whether thyme, dill or basil – each herb gets its own unique stick.
For a herb stick with colour gradient, take a block of FIMO soft in white and in sahara, roll it into a ball in your hand and shape it into a cone. Place the cones next to each other and roll them flat with the acrylic roller.
Now fold the sheet, white on white and sahara on sahara. Roll the FIMO soft flat again with the acrylic roller and fold it again as described. It is important that you always fold the FIMO sheet in the same direction. Repeat until you are satisfied with the colour gradient. Roll out the FIMO sheet with the colour gradient about 5 mm thick. The sheet should be sufficiently wide and long so that the template for the herb sticks will fit well on it later.
You can create up to 12 herb sticks from the two blocks.
Tip: If you only want a smaller portion of one of the two colours, then take only half a block of the respective colour.
From this step onwards, work on baking paper. Now stamp the name of your herbs with the stamp set on the rolled out FIMO sheet.
Tip: Do not press the stamp set too deeply, as this can cause it to press through and create holes.
Take a piece of checked paper and draw an approx. 10 cm long and 1.5 cm wide strip. Draw a tip at one end. Now cut out your herb stick stencil and place it on the FIMO sheet so that the stamped lettering is centered on the stencil. Now cut out the herb sticks with the blade set. Afterwards, all you have to do is harden the herb sticks in the oven at 110°C/230°F and let them cool down.
Use these unique herb sticks to decorate your herb pots in the kitchen or on the balcony.
