Vintage Spoon Plant Tags

planttag_herbs

Lately I’ve been thinking of how to use more recycled materials in the vegetable garden, so when I stumbled across these plant tags made from silver spoons, I was completely smitten. The vegetable, herb, and insect drawings are done by hand using archival ink and sealed onto vintage silver-plated flatware with a moisture and UV-resistant finish. A super cute way to mark herbs in the kitchen garden, don’t you think?

Each individual plant marker runs between $6.00 and $13.00 depending on the size of the spoon, knife, or fork used.

If you want to butter someone up, these butter knives would make a fun last-minute valentine.

    Timely Advice! I was just thinking that I don’t really care for ugly plastic tags in the garden but popsicle sticks have their shortcomings. Love this, decorative and eath friendly. Sometimes spoons end up in my compost pile anyway :p

    Ooooh, I love these! I keep meaning to search up some crafty ways to label my plants. I’ve tried the copper tags but they don’t seem to last. Maybe I’ll give these a try-to-recreate! Thanks for sharing!

    Willi, I saw these on Etsy today and was just thinking about buying them. I did buy the Victory art posters you suggested earlier. I’m going to frame them and place them on a wall in my dining room. I can see them now in simple dark, wooden frames.~~Dee
