Our poor garden is struggling this year. I don't know if it was our crazy spring weather or if we got a bad batch of seeds (or, ahem, my insufficient weeding), but things aren't looking as good as they normally do.
So the girls and I did our part to beautify things with some garden art this weekend.
I cut out rectangles of cream-colored fabric (about 20 inches by 8 inches) and then traced garden-related pictures I found on the Internet using a black Sharpie.
Then the girls painted the pictures using "patio paint," which can withstand some moisture. I'm also planning on brushing on a thin layer of varnish, just on top of where the paintings are, to hopefully protect the pictures a bit more.
We wrapped the flags around twine and glued inside the fold, so the resulting banners are actually double sided and about 10 inches tall by 8 inches wide.
I'm not sure what to call it. A garden flag banner. Garden pennants. Garden prayer banner. A what-the-hell-happened-to-the-herbs sign.
That rainbow outline came from here.
Butterfly drawing came from Let Me Color:
These are/were bunnies (original drawing here):
The illustration for this raised bed drawing came from Lovely Bud:
As did these carrots:
Aw, sweet, huh? Sisterhood is all fun and games until someone says, "I'm not inviting you to my birthday party."
