Use old keys to make these recycled key garden markers for your herb, vegetable, or flower garden this spring. This is a wonderful springtime recycling project to keep old keys out of the landfill.

White indoor/outdoor spray paint
Colorful Sharpie permanent markers
Outdoor sealer spray or brush-onsuch as Outdoor Mod Podge
Spray paint the keys and allow to dry. Give them a second coat and let them dry again before turning them all over and painting the other side.
Write herb names with colorful Sharpies. Then trace over the words, offset just a little, with a black fine point Sharpie. You want to make sure the color shows through.
Use shades of green to draw leaves in different sizes on the keys. I also used pinks, oranges and reds to add a few dots here and there just for colorful accent.
Allow the marker to dry for two hours before applying sealer. Apply two coats to each side.
