Can lid plant markers

Curious project to do along the weekend:let's recycle can lids to use them as plants marks.

What do we need?

  • Forks, used or antique
  • Hammer
  • Pliers
  • Masking tape (optional)
  • Permanent marker and a baby wipe
  • Stamping set (you can buy it for example here)

Can lid plant markers

Place the lid of the can in a stable place and put a piece of masking tape to place the text perfectly in line.

With the help of hammer, stamp plant name with the metal letters and remove the tape.

If you want to add more depth to the name, use a permanent marker to color the letters and all its little nooks, and before the ink dries, clean it with the wipe. Residues marks will remain on the corners, giving more definition to the letters.

Then, with the help of pliers, bend the two middle tines back and away from the rest of the fork. Finally put the cover and it will hold stable and firm between them.
