The process of making spoon markers start with hammering the spoons flat. This sounds like a lot of fun! Then you mark where the letters go.

Then what you'll need are letter stamps -not too small, and with long enough handles. Some practice may be needed to get the letter impressions just right -it's an art form after all! Want to try? Head over to Lindsay's Blog for a step by step tutorial!

Hopefully your spoon garden/plant markers turn out like Rita's masterpieces here!

I'm in the process of trying to learn this art. I have to say it's not as easy as it looks. Anyone who has mastered it keeps telling me "practice make perfect". I've ruined a lot of stainless!!!
