Garden Angel Plant Sign
The angel button card from Crafty Productions, Inc.
Craft glue or hot glue and glue sticks
Water based varnish
Sheet of paper and pencil
In the project we used Forster wood slat and craft sticks. However any purchased wood sign or scrap of wood can be used to make the sign and the stakes to put it on.
To allow room for your writing a buttons draw the size and shape of your sign board on a sheet of paper. Decide what you will write and position it on the paper until you have it right. Transfer it to your board with your permanent marker. The sample sign reads:
My garden (space for angel button) helps the
We added the bunny button without comment just because it was cute.
Glue the stakes to the back and since it will be used in a flower box or flower pot it would be a good idea to place two or three coats of water based varnish over all to protect the wood sign and buttons from moisture.
Although we made our sign on a wood board these buttons lend themselves to a felt banner or wall hanging where you can sew the buttons on. It would also work on a gardening apron as embellishments.
