throwback thursday.. diy herb spikes from yardsale spoons..



today is throwback thursday and i thought this was a fun project i'd share again..we did this one 2 years ago on the fourth of july.. we had planned on going to the lake but pete nixed that idea that year saying it was too windy. i of course pouted and said he was over reacting.. yeah 9 boat capsized and 13 boats got stranded that weekend.. so ::shoulder shrug:: he might have been right.. anywho this is a fun project..

 i picked up  antique silver spoons at a swap meet..



i ordered from harbor freight a couple steel stamping kits.. i ordered a 1/4 " and and an 1/8 "


we pounded the spoons flat with a hammer and we put the spoons on an anvil..



then stamped the word we wanted in.. i then used a black marker colored in the words then wiped them clean..


they came out kinda crooked and i think that's what it gives it it's charm..


pete didn't understand and still doesn't get why the basil one is wrong.. i said you don't read from the bottom up he said i was crazy. ha ha


i just love how they look in the plants..


just to cute :)

 
enjoy and get diy'n!!
