Personalized Garden Decor ~ Father’s Day is coming up and I wanted to put something together extra special for my Dad. My Father is always available to help us out whenever we need him. Whenever we work on a project around the house, he’s always willing to help us out. He’s also a wonderful grandfather who LOVES to play with my daughters. We are so lucky to have him close by.
My Dad has had a rose garden for as long as I can remember. It started off by being a small rose bed with a few rose bushes and slowly grew to a huge rose garden. I believe he has about 30 rose bushes. He cares so much for his roses. He even has a cemetery for them (he hangs their name tags on a special hook when they don’t make it through the winter).
For Father’s Day I made him something to decorate his rose garden, a personalized metal trellis. I love that it’s personalized, inexpensive and handmade just for him.
I picked up the supplies to make this gift at Walmart. It cost me in total about $15.75 to put together (including what I already had at home). Didn’t it turn out great? I can’t wait to surprise him with it!
Personalized Garden Decor
(Inexpensive Handmade Father’s Day Gift)
Metal Trellis ($10 at Walmart)
2 Wooden Signs ($1 each at Walmart)
Chalkboard Paint ($22.48 at Walmart. I used about $0.75 worth of the chalkboard paint)
Foam Brush (in stock)
Wire – Black 19 Gauge (in stock)
Wire Cutter (in stock)
Decorative Beads (in stock)
White Chalk (in stock)
Step 1: Put two coats of chalkboard paint on the wooden plaques (front and back).
Step 2: Attach the wooden signs with the help of the black wire onto the metal trellis. Loop the wire through the hooks on the back of the signs and wrap the wire tightly around the trellis.
Step 3: Cut small pieces of wire and thread it through the beads that you would like to use to decorate the metal trellis. Loop the wire around the trellis tightly. (I only put one bead because my father isn’t much into ”bling”.)
Step 4: Use white (or another color) chalk to write a personal note onto the wooden signs. And voilà, you’re done!
I sure hope my Dad will LOVE the Father’s Day Gift I made him. It’s going to look GREAT in his rose garden. I’ll make sure to show you some photos of the metal trellis in it’s real home when I give it to my father.
Are you making a handmade gift for your father this year? I would love to hear about it!
Gabrielle has informed me that she’s making Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for her Dad for Father’s Day. Hopefully, she’ll let me eat one too! hehe
Have a FABULOUS day!
P.S. I’ll be linking to these Parties.
