I have atouch of whimsyin me that loves to come out in my garden. These cute DIY Garden Signs are made from some reclaimed wood I found. With just a touch of paint and a few catchy garden sign sayings, they now become garden art.
Theseboardswere found under the old pigeon coop (the previous owners hobby). To get them smaller I broke them into pieces with the heel of my boot over a concrete block. Then Isandedthem down and drilled holes in them.
I used Patio Paint fromMichael’sand a big fat brush to color these up. Just a few quick strokesin one or two colors. Then once dry, I gave it another sanding.
I tole painted on theflowersand penciled on my garden sign sayings before painting over the letters as my guide. Then I added a twisted wire to the previously drilled holes for a hanger. If you’re giving it as a gift, I like to add a paper raffia bow.
Of course these are always fun to haveinsideas well….
I’ve been collecting garden sign sayings for awhile now and every so often I come back to this post to add a few more. So far there is about 60 on on this page!
