So I’m spicing up my pasta with pesto and my basil planter with a

DIY Seed Packet Garden Sign

This was done old school so all you need to do is:

1) print GROW letters (I printed them in Word using marker felt font at 375 size but your size will vary depending on the wood size)

2) cut out each letter

3) print seed packet stamps in color

4) trace letters onto seed packet stamps and cut out

5) mod podge letters onto an old piece of scrap wood

6) spray with a matte poly to protect from the elements

7) stick the sign in your favorite spot in the garden and watch it grow

  2. While you’re getting your craft on I’m heading out to get my score at the thrift store on. So what do you put in your pesto? We used to have a cat named Pesto.

  9. I ADORE Basil — can never have too much of it in my opinion! Love the planter sign — very clever way to do this!

  10. You win hands down for cute garden projects this week. I actually said “that is so cute” out loud, to my computer. I have my junk, literally as garden stakes. This would be the perfect addition to the junk. And easy!

  11. Kelly, this is just the cutest sign and using the vintage seed packet paper is just genius! Pinning and sharing this!

  12. This is such cute letters and sign. Will putting is a pot really make the flowers grow? … if so, I need to make a sign for a lot of pots. Love it … need to copy.

  13. Way too cute Kelly, LOVE it. Now if only I could grow something.

  14. Love this sign, Kelly. It’s so the letters!

  15. FYI Toasted sunflower seeds are a good replacement for nuts in pesto, if people allergic to nuts are okay with them.

  16. This is so pretty! I just clicked over from Mod Podge Rocks and would love to link to this if you didn’t mind!
