My yard and garden are in full bloom! I love walking out in the soft green grass and looking at all the colors! As I’ve mentioned in previous posts I love to garden and I’m going to show you a cute idea for a Garden Stake. There is something therapeutic about getting down into the dirt and digging out the weeds. My favorite time to be out in my yard is in the early morning when it is still cool. Everything is still damp from the sprinklers the night before, the air is perfect and it is so quiet because everything is just waking up for the day.

 

Every now and again I like to add a fun garden stake, colorful pots or some cute garden décor so when Krystal showed me some cute garden quotes I knew I had to put them on a garden stake and add it to my yard!

Garden Stake
First off we narrowed it down to three different sayings. For our garden stake you’ll want to round up three rectangle boards. Wanting the garden stake to be fun and different. We did not use the same sizes of boards on the stake. As you can see in the picture they vary in size.  Picking out colors is always fun.

While the paint was drying we picked out some coordinating vinyl colors. Cutting the vinyl onto my personal cutting machine makes it easy. We chose what size of font to use for each saying and then measured our boards to determine the size our lettering needed to be. (This can easily be done by just measuring your board)

Once our boards were dry we applied the vinyl lettering to each board then sealed the boards (overtop of the vinyl and paint) to help prevent weathering of the stakes where they were going to be used out in our flower beds / gardens.

Gardeners know the best dirt

I had my husband pick me up some 1″ x 2″ Furring strips of Wood. To use as our actual stake to put into the ground. We cut each stake to 4 ft. then cut off the bottom of the stake to a point. We do this to make it easier to push into the ground. Once the stake was cut we put each wood board into place. Spacing them evenly you’ll want to use a Nailer to nail the boards to the stake. Once this is done it is ready to put out in the garden! I also knew my mother would love something like this so I ended up making her one for mother’ day.

It has made a fun conversation piece at my home!
