Cute Garden Sign Ideas That You Can Craft From Scratch And Customize
Apart from all the beautiful plants and flowers that make your garden look lush and magnificent, there’s plenty of decorations and accessories that can make it look even better. We really like the idea of adding signs out here, whether it’s for a practical purpose so you can identify each plant or purely decorative. We looked around and found a bunch of garden sign ideas that we think you’re really going to love. Check them out below.
A wonderful thing about gardens and outdoor areas in general is that they don’t need to look perfect in order to be beautiful and rusty shovels and old containers can always find a place here. Speaking of which, check out this lovely garden sign that was featured on organizedclutter. It’s made from a very rusty shovel and it’s super easy to customize using a decorative paint pen. Start by printing out your selected word on a piece of paper and be sure to choose a nice font. Then trace it with chalk and transfer it onto the shovel. Retrace the letter with a paint pen and you’re done.
This lovely garden sign was made using spindle legs and an old piece of wood. You only need two spindles which you might be able to get from an old table. You can have them cleaned and painted and it would be best to add a metal dowel to the bottom of each spindle so you can push it into the dirt and keep it nice and stable. As for the actual stencil and the words written on the sign, that part is entirely up to you. Check out organizedclutter for a few inspiring ideas.
This is graffiti, but made with moss instead of paint. Doesn’t it look amazing? It’s something that you can add to one of the exterior walls of your house or to a fence to create a focal point for the outdoors. It can also be a cool alternative to a more typical garden sign. The idea comes from jolenesgardening and definitely has tons of potential so take some time to come up with a unique way to incorporate into some of your own projects.
A cute garden sign can make the whole area look beautiful. This one is quite simple and consists mainly of a piece of wood with a couple of words and a bee painted on it. What really makes it stand out is the finish. It’s a mixture of light fern and chocolate stain and has a really cool jungle-inspired look. It’s also great that it look hand drawn even though a stencil was used for the actual design. More details about this project can be found on craftberrybush.
How about a garden sign that actually says “garden”? This one is nice and simple and can be easily replicated. All you need is some cheap wooden letters and a few wooden dowels. Go ahead and glue them together so each dowel ends up having a letter at the top. You can also paint the letters and the dowels if you want to. Once done, you can insert them into the ground or inside a planter or two, as shown on sewcountrychick. Feel free to pick any letter and create any word you like (or several).
Another idea is to make a garden sign out of pallet wood which you may already have from previous projects. All you need is a single pallet board to make a vintage-looking sign like the one featured on raggedy-bits. You should also have a saw nearby so you can cut the board to size once you figure out the proportions of the sign. You’ll also need a sander or some sandpaper to get the edges nice and smooth, paint, transfer paper and a printer for the letters and wax to seal the sign once it’s done.
If you can find an old, weathered piece of wood then go ahead and keep it because it would be absolutely perfect to make a garden sign. With a bit of paint you can transform it into a cool farmhouse-inspired decoration which you can attach to your garden fence or the porch. It’s a simple and inexpensive project and there are tons of ways in which you can customize it and make it your own. Check out simplychicforcheap for extra details in case you need them.
This cute garden sign is actually both decorative and practical. In addition to looking pretty on the garden fence it also has two hooks which hold garden tools. It’s a nice combo and a great way to keep track of your most used tools and have them nearby whenever you need them. The sign itself has a really nice design in this case and we love the dark green color and the font used. Also, the hooks have been distressed in order to fit the theme. For more details, head over to elegantnest.
A simple barn wood sign can also look lovely in the garden, even if it may not stand out a lot. The trick here is to find a suitable piece of wood, one that’s old and irregular but still in good shape. You can then go ahead and clean it up a little bit, maybe apply a bit of paint and use a stencil to get some letters in place as well. Something simple would fit the theme. Check out thecountrychiccottage if you seek additional inspiration.
If you’re looking to showcase a specific message that’s more than a couple of words long, a single garden wouldn’t do. Instead, consider making something like this. It’s a little project featured on maluukkonen which we find both fun and interesting. It uses several pieces of wood connected with zip ties and some rope. The message is quite fun too.
Speaking of fun garden signs, there’s a bunch of cool ideas that we found on thehauntedgardens. The signs themselves are looking quite nice too. Whether you choose the vintage and distressed design or you go with something more colorful, there are always ways to make your garden sign look original. A quirky message always helps, especially once that puts a smile on your face every time you see it.
Hand-painted garden signs always look gorgeous and they’re also unique and original. We really like these vintage-looking radish and carrot signs featured on flowerpatchfarmhouse. There’s a tutorial here which explains how you can recreate this particular design if you want to make something similar for your own beautiful garden.
This project from funkyjunkinteriors is a bit different because it’s not a garden sign per se but rather a crate, an accent piece which you hang up on a wall inside your home or outside on the porch. It could also look nice in the garage or the garden shed. It also doubles as a little storage space for a few tools, accessories or planters and you can also make use of the little workspace when the door folds down.
