Wood Spoon Garden Markers
With some inexpensive spoons and acrylic paint you can create colorful wood spoon garden markers for your garden that are practical as well as pretty!
- wooden spoons
- acrylic paint
- washi or painters tape
- foam brushes
- paper plate
- Mod Podge Outdoor
- stickers or vinyl words – Cricut Maker (available at Cricut, Michaels, and HSN) and white vinyl
Wrap washi or painters tape around the base of each spoon.
Use a foam brush to paint each spoon (I chose the paint colors to “match” the vegetable/fruit).
Let dry. A tall cup easily fit six spoons at once! Paint a second coat if necessary.
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.
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.
Add a layer of outdoor Mod Podge to each spoon.
