I just finished stenciling the second directional sign I purchased last weekend at the local occasional shop sale.
Here the signs were last weekend. Base coated in brown paint but not decorated or stenciled.
Here is directional sign #1.
The first sign had a steel rod stake in the bottom so it could be poked into a flower bed, flower pot or just in the lawn. This sign is quite a bit heavier so my husband made this stand out of 2 x 4's. The sign just slips into the square hole created by the stand. Later he clipped the top corners off to make the stand look more finished. (See photo 1 in the post)
I am using an old plastic tablecloth for a painting drop cloth!
If you want to make your own Flowers Everywhere directional sign, the materials list is as follows:
1. Top sign 7" x 24" x 1" board.
2. 1" square board for signpost.
3. 8 - 13 1/2" x 2 5/16" pickets.
4. 4 - 2" x 4" x 16" boards for the base.
5. Wood screws.
I painted this sign with Painter's Touch white flat paint, and stenciled it with Old Sign Stencils Market Extensions.
Since the flower stencil didn't have an "S" at the end, I lined up the "Farmers" stencil and added the "S". The arrow is from the Getaway Collection.
Since the directional arrows were quite narrow, hardly any of my stencils worked, so I decided it may be fun to make them all arrows pointing to FLOWERS in my yard. I think it's quite fitting!
