I have a big garden and I love it. But I am a bit of a control freak and I have a hard time letting my kids "help" in the garden. If you remember my post about the rainbow garden you know that this year I decided to give them their own section. We planted things that grow a color that is not traditional, like blue potatoes. We also planted rainbow mix carrots, rainbow lettuce, purple and yellow string beans, and yellow and purple tomatoes. I was going to plant black radishes but when the seeds came that I ordered they were red. But that is okay :)
I have fun garden markers in my garden (which I will show you later...) and the kids wanted to make signs for their garden. I cut some pieces of wood with my miter saw. Then the kids sanded them smooth.
I used my Silhouette to cut some vinyl lettering out but you could always write on them with marker.
Then I cut a dowel to size. I made them each 12 inches. I got a drill bit that was about the same size as the dowel and drilled a hole in the bottom of the sign.
I squirted some wood glue in there and then pushed the dowel in the hole. After it had dried I sealed it.
And here they are in our little rainbow garden! The kids are so proud of how they turned out.
