Recycled Key Garden Markers

Key Garden Markers
  • Old, unusable keys
  • Outdoor paint
  • Colorful sharpies
  • Outdoor sealer
Step 1: Layout your old keys on a piece of cardboard or other surface you don't mind getting paint on. 

Step 2: Spray the keys with paint and allow them to dry before adding a second coat. Once the second coat is dry, flip the keys over and repeat the process. 

Step 3: Write the names of the herbs with colorful sharpies, and decorate. 

Step 4: Allow the marker to dry for 2 hours before spraying the keys with outdoor sealer. Apply two coats of sealer to each side. Allow to fully dry before putting them in the ground.
