Grandma's Garden Signs


This weekend my sister and I gave my mom her birthday gift.
We gave her some garden signs.
We wandered the isles of Hobby Lobby looking for inspiration. (Always one of my favorite parts of starting a project.)
We settled on some unfinished wood blocks.

Hubby went to Home Depot to buy the wood for the stakes and hardware. (There is no way that Grandma’s Garden sign will blow away!)

After we painted the wood blocks with some acrylic paint, we printed the words on some Grafix Rub-onz Film. (I still need to buy a new blade for my Silhouette.)

Hubby and my sister sprayed them down with several coats of Krylon Polyurethane Satin Finish.
