All you’ll need is something like these two signs, and a pack of garden stakes.

I began by staining my stakes using Driftwood by Minwax.

Next, I cut the points off and then cut the stakes in half. This made them 17” long.

Next I laid the stakes out on a flat surface.

I then hot glued them inside the back of the signs (to the sides and bottom of the sign).

To fully secure the stakes to the sides of the signs, I nailed them in as well. This is not required, but will help to keep your crate in tact.

It's looking like a crate!

I added a bit of twine around the edges to cover up the nail marks, it looks more finished this way.

I placed three canning jars and some green in the crate.
