New garden signs

excessfroufrou(7)March 17, 2011

I just finished making these 2 garden signs, plus one more that's not pictured. I sold these 2 to a girl at work and barely remembered to take a pic, hence the black-top background. The other one I made says "Pick Me!". I've got some more plates and need to get busy on them.

Oh I love them!
They would look perfect on my fence .. LoL
I like how you put them on wood to enable easier mounting.

Those are cool, frou...did you use "vinyl" cricut lettering? or paint? Either way, looks great! Love the colors! Jeanne S.

How pretty and clever! You will have to share your lettering secret. I suck at painting so I'm hoping you do something easier.

I swear I posted how I painted these, but it seems to have gotten lost in outer space, oh well.... I printed the letters on my computer and then used tracing paper from the fabric store to transfer them to the plates. Then I painted them with outdoor paint, I was always good at coloring in the lines. I then sprayed with a sealer. Thanks for all the sweet comments.

lucylou, I used a washer that is about an inch and half wide and a bolt with a flat head that fits flush with the washer, then I used GEII to glue the whole thing to the back of the plate. I drilled a hole in the board and stuck the bolt through and put on a nut. I put little pieces of board on the ends of the sign to keep the nuts from scraping or banging whatever it is hangin on. I think this will hold because the plates are not very heavy.
