Wooden Spoon Garden Stakes

With the fabulous season of gardening upon us we decided to create some sweet garden stakes!
This is a very quick, inexpensive way to mark the tender beauties growing for you.

To create you will need 

Wooden spoons
Watercolor pencil crayons
A wood burner
Outdoor modpodge or a sealant of any kind

Begin by drawing your plant pictures and words on your spoons.

Next, take your wood burning tool and trace over your picture and words. 
(With close supervision it seems to be easy and safe for little people (sevenish and up)

Color them in with your watercolors... 

Put a sealant over your spoons
and there you go!

Unique garden stakes that will always remind you of your kiddies.
Thinking these would make a great gift for grandparents!

After admiring their colorful handiwork we decided to give them a home.

First up was planting our sweet peas...

 giving them a good drink...

and marking our new babies!

Now they smile up at us, reminding us of the beautiful bounty soon to fill our table and bellies.

Celebrating the goodness of gardens
