  • How to make a plant marker. Plant Markers - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your spoons and paint them with your choice of colour. I used a low gloss matt finish paint.

    I painted both sides of the spoons so that I can write watering and sun conditions that the plants require on the backs.

    Step 2

    Once dry, write the plant name on them with permanent marker and put them in your planters. You can also use a normal pencil to mark them if you want it to be re-usable.

    You can put stickers on them for children that haven't learnt to read yet.

I love this idea going as I will be using it for my indoor herbs and my conservatory/green house I am going to use black board paint to I can re-label with ease...

Thank you for posting.

This is a great idea! I spent hours yesterday running to a ton of thrift stores looking for silver spoons to hammer flat to stamp to make into plant markers but this is so much easier! Thanks!
