Spoon garden marker tutorial

This summer my pride and joy is my herb garden.  I normally hate gardening but this is a small and manageable garden so I am ok with it.  I couldn't keep which herbs were what straight in my head so I saw these and had to figure out how to make them.

spoons - I went to the second hand store and bought them for $.25
HEAVY hammer - I used a sledge hammer and anvil
spray finish

Smash your spoon flat - this will take a while and keep flipping it over to get it perfectly flat.  The heavier the hammer the easier and quicker it will be.

write you desired word with the sharpie - let dry

spray very lightly with finish.  If finish is too heavy the words will smear.

Stick the handle in the ground and no more confusion!!!
