HOW TO MAKE WOODEN SPOON PLANT MARKERS
- Wrap washi 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.
- Remove washi tape from spoon and add names of fruit/vegetable using stickers, vinyl, a sharpie, etc.
- Add a layer of outdoor Mod Podge to each spoon.
These colorful wooden spoon plant markers will help you identify the plants in your garden and get you ready for the riot of color that your fruits and vegetables will bring!
