Materials List

  • 4 plastic spoons
  • Americana Multi-Surface Satin paint: Sky Blue, Melonball, Chick, Peach Silk, Overcast, and Bittersweet
  • Sandpaper
  • Paintbrush
  • Toothpick
  • Fine point black art pen


  1. Sand each spoon to knock off the shine.

  2. Paint each spoon with a thin coat of paint, leaving the bottom 2-inches of the handle unpainted. This is where the spoon will go into the ground.

  3. When dry, paint a second coat and allow to dry completely.

  4. Use micron art pen to write herb names on the spoons.

  5. Use a toothpick to dot on designs using the gray and brown paints.

  6. Let these dry for a full 48 hours before exposing to the outdoor elements.

Talk about an easy project! This is it! I can't believe how easy and the best part is how cheap it would be to make. There are instructions with pictures but you hardly need them. This is so cute. I have a little porch garden that I stuck Popsicle sticks in. These would look much nicer.
