I mentioned recently that I am on the board of my HOA and we are putting in a community garden so I volunteered to make our garden markers! It might be for selfish reasons but I just might be ready to marry my Painters Paint Pens!
- Spray paint
- Paint Sticks
- Spray sealer
I went to Home Depot for some paint sticks. Lucky for me that they kept their sticks on the counter and the paint guy was in an aisle helping a customer because I needed about 20! Once I hijacked my sticks I grabbed a .94 can of white spray paint for the base color and I recommend that you buy 2 cans if you are doing 20 or more sticks because the back of my sticks are just barely white enough.
After I covered the sticks with my spray paint I traced out my design idea with a pen. Keep in mind that if you are using a light color you will be able to see the outline. I am not the best artist nor do I have a steady hand but I think in this instance random is fitting.
I picked my colors, filled in and traced my design how I wanted them. When I was finished with that I sprayed them with a sealer just to be safe. These are really easy to make but I don’t want to remake them because of the weather!
