First I used a hammer to flatten out the silverware.
Then I used my metal punches to spell out the name of one of the herbs I have. My punching skills aren't perfect, it's somewhat difficult (at least for me!) to hit repeatedly in the same spot to get a deep enough letter.
Then using a hint from Cut out and Keep I used a black sharpie to fill in the letters.
I then used my homemade vinegar spray cleanser to wipe the sharpie ink from the non-punched surface. This took quite a bit of buffing. (You can also use sand paper or fine steel wool but it will leave fine scratches on the surface of the utensil.)
And here is the finished product!
And a few more I made:
You can even use the handle of a fork as I did for my mint.
Adding a bit of whimsy to the herb garden!
