National Gardening Week ~ How To Make Garden Sign Posts

Not all work in the garden needs to be about planting and sowing, some times it’s nice to throw a little crafting in too, especially if the kids can get involved.

We decided to make some sign posts using scraps of wood and a few craft items, this was a fun craft for the boys and I to work on together.

How to Make Garden Sign Posts


Step 1. Make the arrows, we used scraps of wood. Make sure a responsible adult does any sawing!

I decided to use driftwood as the posts, rather than regular ol’ wooden sticks.

Step 2. Paint the arrows, and allow to dry.

Step 3. Use decorations or pens to add labels to the arrows.

Step 4. Use hot glue to attach the arrows to the driftwood. Again, make sure this is done by someone responsible! Allow to dry.

Step 5. Plonk the sign posts in the garden!

We created a little ‘woodland’ haven for bugs, using lumps of driftwood and pinecones, this is situated between two Belfast sinks.
