Twig Plant Marker How-To 1. Gather small branches, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch around, in an easily worked but sturdy wood, such as maple. 2. With a vegetable peeler, strip a couple of inches of bark at one end, making a flat surface, and use permanent marker [or stamps + ink] to record the name. Note: If the wood is green and oozing sap, let it dry overnight before writing.
I have wanted to create these for over two years. It is very difficult to find silver spoons on the cheap. I have found 2 in the last two years and have already purchased the stamps to make these markers. Another DIY project that I have started and haven't finished.
