Make long lasting DIY garden signs to suit your style from slate flooring tiles from the garden center. These tiles are very sturdy so they can break if dropped onto a hard surface. Take care when carrying.You don’t have to hang the tile, you can use bricks or stones to prop up tiles so they are easier to see when placed in your garden.

    I like the design, very simple. Did you freehand this or use a stencil? Did you clear coat the finished sign to protect it from the weather?
