Embossed Garden Marker

I'm supposed to be cleaning, but I got sidetracked when I found the metal duct tape my husband picked up for me last year. A little metal tape, a plastic knife, and some fancy script work ( I wrote radish, backwards, on the opposite side) and I have a little garden marker. Sweet. Maybe if I finish this room, I can make more!! Maybe I'll use chopsticks for the rest?

(If I can find the original source for this project, I'll post it. I might have seen it on The Kitchn last year?? Anyone know?)

Check out http://doityourselfmama.wordpress.comto see why I'm cleaning today.

That is a fabulous idea! I wonder if there is a way to give a patina to that tape? Oh! I bet some alcohol ink maybe would work. But would it just wash off in the rain?

You have the cutest handwriting. And I remember when Wonder Daddy picked that up last year. haha

That's so cool. You would not believe how many different garden markers I have tried. They never seem to last. Maybe this one?
