Garden signs - old wood
Made these up for the garden fair this weekend. These are old pieces of wood given to us many years ago - I believe they are pieces of crates - they are slats nailed together with cross boards on the back and this wood is HARD, HARD, HARD! Hubby cleaned out his shop and threw them on the burn pile last summer. They laid there for a few weeks and one day I decided to rescue it. So it's laid around in MY shed for a year, and now they're finally done. I just used acrylic paint, foam stamps for the leaves and flowers, and then sealed them good with sealer. Some are for hanging, others are on spindles - found a pile of 36 treated lumber spindles at a garage sale for $5! We put a piece of 3/16" steel rod into the bottom so they would stick in the ground. I tried to go with sayings that might bring a chuckle. My favorite is the one with the butterfly - it is a wooden butterfly we nailed on so it is dimensional. I'm happy to be using up my stash of stuff.
