Rusty Old Shovel Flower Sign for My Junk Garden

Rusty Old Shovel Flower Sign for My Junk Garden

Last week I mentioned I had one last project that I was working on for my junk garden, which I’ve finished.  My memory card ate the photos I took while I was working on it, but photos aren’t really needed because it was an easy project.

We had this large, old shovel in our garage.  The handle had rotted and broken off, and it was totally rusty and banged up, but perfect for use as a short sign for the garden.

I used the small Fresh Flowers stencil to paint the lettering on it and turned it into a sign for the garden.

I just attached the stencil with painter’s tape and used a stencil brush with most of the paint wiped off of it.

The gladiolus plants are done blooming, so I’ll be digging them up and adding a fall plant or two in their place.

I’ll plant more out by the barn next year where their height will look better and they won’t be so scrunched up.

If you missed all the other junk garden projects I’ve shared, you can see them HERE.
