DYI - Vintage Sign

How to create a Vintage Sign

I love vintage business signs but they are hard to find.  So I decided to make my own.  Since I was making one from scratch, the options were unlimited.  However, once I really thought about it, the sign I wanted may have never existed.  I've asked my brother's but they don't remember a sign.  

My dad built these three ponds and for a few years, had them open to the public for fishing.  The charge was $1.00.  

I can remember fishing there myself as a little girl, but not the people coming to fish.   As we have been bringing the property back to life, I thought the perfect sign would be the one that "could" have been there over 50 years ago.

DIY Topiaries


DIY Topiary Tutorial

 As I was planning my spring and summer porch decor, I decided that I wanted my porch to have a garden feel.   I wanted to add some fun topiaries to the design.  However, as I began to search for the perfect topiaries, I was disappointed.

Then I was walking through Hobby Lobby I spotted these cute little mini stems that I decided would make my perfect topiaries.  They were 50% off  and I also found some cute pots that were 50% off.  So this is the result of my topiary attempt.
