Silver Spoons and Sundflowers

You've seen them before, vintage spoons turned into plant marker, but I still had to post the one I did! This spoon is part of the auction find from last month and was too corroded to use at the table. So I hammered it flat and stamped in the message. I made the sunflower seed packet to give away with the marker!
Here is the closeup of the spoon's flattened bowl. I off set the letters because I knew I wouldn't be able to get them straight anyway! The letters stand out more if you rub some permanent ink into them.This spoon is huge. I can't wait to stick it in the ground! Diana


  1. Good hint about the ink! I have some letter punches and want to try some projects, too!

  2. I love this idea and this is the first place I've seen it...I have a stupid question, though. How do you get the letters onto the spoon?
