Easy DIY Botanical Art

Morning sunshine!! I hope you’re feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed this Monday morning. I’m actually pretty excited for the week ahead because it should be relatively quiet around here (fingers crossed), which will be a welcome sight after a couple busy weeks. And even though I like to be busy, it will be nice to have a little less on my plate. Anyway, today I’m sharing easy peasy DIY botanical art that I made using signs from the Target dollar spot. Yes, the DOLLAR SPOT. I was browsing through there the other day when I spotted the most adorable wooden herb signs, so I grabbed four of them and started brainstorming ways I could use them for a project. I’m excited to share what I came up with today!

Aren’t they cute?! And only $1 each. BOOM. I thought it would be fun to use all four of these signs together to make a larger sign I could put in our kitchen. I didn’t want to build one, so I decided to look for an inexpensive wooden sign that I could paint. I found one for ten bucks that was the perfect size.

Totally random, I know. But for $10, this was way easier than building a similar wooden frame. I simply painted over the design with one coat of chalkboard paint.

As the paint was drying I worked on the small herb signs. I started by removing the hanger on the back and then I sanded them down slightly for more of a vintage-y look. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Lastly, I hot glued all four of the small herb signs onto my larger sign. Here’s the finished look:

Not too shabby for the Target dollar spot, right?! I love how it turned out and this entire project took me less than 30 minutes from start to finish. It was SO dang easy. And even though it’s a bit random to use another sign and paint over it, it actually worked really well. Plus it saved me the time and effort of making my own frame. I’m all about shortcuts, so I’ll take it!

Thanks so much for dropping by today! I hope you enjoyed the little idea I had for these herb signs. Here are a few other easy DIY’s you might want to check out while you’re here:

    So cute, and not random at all! Makes sense to use a pre-made frame when it’s inexpensive. I know yours was new, but you can do similar things with thrifted frames, there is an abundance of them! Work smarter, not harder!

    Went to Target this weekend and was THRILLED to find this in my Dollar Spot after seeing this post. What are the dimensions of your frame? I’ll be searching Goodwill this week for a thrifted frame and was wondering what size you used.

    Thank you so much for the idea!!

    Super cute and even better, these little signs of cuteness are now on clearance at Target for $0.50 each making it an even better deal!
