Words and Numbers in the Garden – Easy DIY Projects

DIY Garden Words and Numbers

Words and Numbers can do so many things.  They can set a mood, or showcase a location. They can tell a time or label something so it is noted.

These wonderful DIY garden decorations all use words and numbers in some creative way. They are all easy to do and yet very effective.  I love cottage gardening and they would all fit into my garden scheme nicely.
