DIY Garden Signs with 60+ Garden Sign Sayings

I have a touch of whimsy in 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.

 These boards were 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 I sanded them down and drilled holes in them.


 I used Patio Paint from Michael’s and a big fat brush to color these up. Just a few quick strokes in one or two colors. Then once dry, I gave it another sanding.

I tole painted on the flowers and 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.
