WOOD SPOON GARDEN MARKERS

These wood spoon garden markers are the perfect way to bring a little creativity to your garden! I love color - and this was a great way to use some of my "leftover" paints.

Want an inexpensive way to store those acrylic paints? We turned a cabinet door in to the perfect paint shelf. {FTC disclaimer: this post contains affiliate links which means I may make a small commission at no additional cost to you.}

HOW TO MAKE WOOD SPOON GARDEN MARKERS

1. Wrap washi or painters tape around the base of each spoon.

2. Use a foam brush to paint each spoon (I chose the paint colors to “match” the vegetable/fruit).

3. Let dry. A tall cup easily fit six spoons at once! Paint a second coat if necessary.

4. Cricut has a cartridge called Freshly Picked that has over a dozen different plant names ready to cut - so it took me less than five minutes to create these. Don't have a Cricut? Stickers would work just as well.

5. Remove tape from spoon and add plant names. PS...normally I would use transfer tape for vinyl, but these were small enough that I just peeled them right off and applied them to the spoon.

5. Add a layer of outdoor Mod Podge to each spoon.
