With garden season fast approaching, I am highly anticipating my first time growing my own food. I am optimistic that I can do it. But being the crafty gal I pride myself in being, I need to make it cute too. So I have been buying any gnome I can at the thrift stores (most of which appear to be having an identity crisis with ruby red lips). In addition to buying gnomes at Goodwill I pick up butter knives that speak to me. Why? To use as super thrifty and cute garden markers! How great are these?
So, you want to make your own? Here is how.
Butter knives from a thrift store- my Goodwill has them for 10 cents each
(forks and spoons can be used also)
1/8 inch metal letter stamp set- I got mine from Harbor Freight for $4.99
Next you just stamp each letter into your knife. And when I say "stamp", I mean pound the crap out of it. You need to really give it some muscle. Buy extra knives and use one or two as practice. Try doing this on a concrete surface covered with a towel or on your back patio. It is loud!
That's it! Easy, right?
