I’m clearly on a major metal stamping kick right now, but I’ve still got projects, so why stop now? This is a cute and unique way to label your plants, using old silverware that you could easily get from a thrift store.
- Antique spoon (Modern stainless versions don’t stamp well at all.)
- Metal stamps (Mine are from Evie’s Tool Emporium on Etsy!)
- Nail file, steel wool, or fine grit sandpaper
- Permanent marker
- Heavy rubber mallet
1. Place the spoon face-down against a very firm surface. Using a heavy rubber mallet, pound the back of the spoon until it is completely flattened. I found that setting the spoon atop a towel on the concrete worked better than a countertop or table.
