Quick and easy DIY garden signs for your backyard vegetable garden.

So one of my favorite places this season is quickly becoming my vegetable garden in the very back of our property. I have 9 total raised garden beds fully stocked with veggies and herbs. One herb garden bed, kale, spinach/swiss chard, zucchini, watermelon, peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and beefsteak tomatoes. I’ll pretty much have a fully functioning farmers market come mid-summer so if you want to stop by, I accept payments in the form of house-cleaning, tending to the yard, and fresh baked goods. 🙂

I decided to make some cute little signs to line the edges of my garden beds. Not only to remember what I actually planted, but hey, also because they’re adorable and fun to look at when I’m out working in the garden. 

Materials you’ll need:

  • Cedar fence panels
  • 2×4 boards or any scrap wood boards
  • 2 inch wood screws
  • Black exterior paint
  • Small paint brush

To make the DIY Garden Signs:

  • Cut a cedar fence panel about 14 inches long.
  • Cut the 2×4 board to 2 feet long.
  • Put the cedar fence panel face down on a work bench then drill the board into the back. Make sure the screws do not come out the front of the sign. They shouldn’t if you’re using 2 inch screws and a 2×4. 
  • Now, using a small paint brush, paint the vegetable name on the sign. 
  • Hammer the sign into the ground using a mallet. It helps if the ground is soft so try doing this a day or so after it rains.

    Yay for upcycling! Your garden signs are super cute! We have little terracotta ones which I painted, however, now that we’re growing different veggies I’ve got to put together some new ones!
