I put my herb garden together this weekend (and we already raided it for Sunday dinner) and thought I’d whip up a quick set of spoon and fork garden markers to go along with it! If you read here often, you know I LOVE metal stamping. It’s a quick technique for personalizing all kinds of pieces, and once you make your initial investment it’s inexpensive to keep using it. I paid $4 for this cute set of garden markers because I only needed to buy the spoons and forks.
I LOVE how cute they turned out!
I’ve been trying to incorporate more video into my tutorials, so today’s how-to is a 10-minute video. If you prefer a photo tutorial, you can always check out my stamped spoon tutorial I shared for Valentine’s Day, and of course if you are new to metal stamping, be sure to check out my beginner’s stamping post as well.
I will leave some product links in the supply list to help you find some of these supplies. These aren’t affiliate links; I don’t benefit if you make a purchase. I always get questions asking, “where can I find that?” You guys always ask! So I’m going to make it easy and leave you some links, but buy wherever you like. :)
- Premium stamp set (one that will stamp stainless steel) – like the ImpressArt Premium set in Newsprint
- Spoons and Forks – any kind is fine if you have a premium stamp set. If you are planning to use a basic stamp set, you will need silver or silver plated spoons and forks. Stainless steel will be too hard for a regular stamp set.
- Steel Bench Block
- Hammer – I like this one that’s designed for metal stamping, but a regular 16 oz hammer from your tool box works just fine
- Permanent Marker (like a Sharpie)
- Polishing cloth
- Masking Tape
