  • 4 plastic spoons
  • Multi Surface paint: light blue light green, light yellow, peach/melon, gray, brown
  • Tools: sandpaper paintbrush, toothpick, micron fine point black art pen


  • Sand each spoon to knock off the shine.
  • Paint each spoon with a thin coat of paint, leaving the bottom 2-inches of the handle unpainted. This is where the spoon will go into the ground.
  • When dry, paint a second coat and allow to dry completely.
  • Use micron art pen to write herb names on the spoons.
  • Use a toothpick to dot on designs using the gray and brown paints.
  • Let these dry for a full 48 hours before exposing to the outdoor elements.
