Yard Art ~ Spoon Plant Markers


Yard art is like jewelry for the garden!

What a fun idea for those yard sale, thrift store and flea market finds that you can pick up for almost nothing, but can make such an awesome impact in your garden.  I've seen some really cute yard art projects using old spoons . . . guess I won't be passing these up at future thrift sales anymore!

Want to make these for your garden?
