This project is brought to you by Latrice Murphy from Any Occasion.
Is your garden planted yet? I’m a few weeks behind on mine due to rain and cold weather here in Illinois. However, now I’ve finally got my little sprouts ready to go. This year, I want to really make my garden fun to look at and make it easy to find what I’m harvesting. The chalkboard craze has gotten to me, so I figured out how to carry its coolness into my garden this year. I created these Faux Chalkboard Garden Stakes in just a few steps. Best of all, it cost me only about $2 to create this project!
I kept it simple with black and white and didn’t get real artsy with the writing. You definitely could use a different style pen and make these really unique.
- Wooden stakes
- Black spray paint
- White sharpie paint pen with a medium tip
Lay out stakes on something protective and give each side two coats of paint. Make sure to let each layer dry before spraying the next.
Bring them inside to dry over night.
Create your writing by getting the pen started on a scratch piece of paper and doing it however you like. You can write with a pencil first for a guide if you decide to do cursive or calligraphy.
That’s it! It only takes three easy steps to add some charm to your garden this year.
