Garden Stakes! I love my new garden stakes. My only regret, I didn’t grab more of these when they were in stock! Just a little painters tape, spray paint and something to stencil with and we can personalize these however we want!
Supplies I Used for my Dollar Tree Garden STakes
- 4 Round Dollar Tree signs on a stake. These garden stakes measures 7″ diameter and were a dollar each!
- Outdoor Spray Paint: Rust-oleum White and Navy Blue
- Painters Tape, Dental pick
- Vinyl Decals or Stencil: My DT Garden Stakes Stencils available in the MPD Library, join here.

Prepping my Garden STakes
Before I started I made sure the signs were clean and then I taped the jute rope loops to the back of the garden stakes so they were out of the way.
Then I taped the stakes to protect them from the spray paint and took them outside.
My favorite large piece of cardboard to spray paint on was missing, thanks to my hubby, so I found an out of the way place in my backyard.
Of course, my hubby spotted the area when he got home from work.
I sprayed two coats of white paint over the round garden stakes, letting them dry in between each coat.
Once dry, I brought them back in the house and started working on making my garden stake stencils.
Stenciling my garden stakes
Did you know I have a free growing library for those who join my MPD Tribe?
I put these Garden Stake designs in the library in a new column, marked “Summertime”.

I used the PVPP method to craft these garden stakes.
Paint, Vinyl, Paint, Peel. Click here to see my other projects I used this method with!
If you don’t have your own personal cutter, you could always use vinyl decals from the scrap book section also.
Once the stencils are in place on my four garden stakes, I took them back outside.
I picked Navy Blue, because that is the color I had on hand.
A few years ago, I turned two pallets into outdoor flags, so I keep this color on hand to freshening those signs up.
This color only took one coat, I went over them just enough to cover the entire surface.
As soon as my garden stakes were dry I took them back inside.
I grabbed my favorite dental pick and started pulling the stencils off.
Since I used outdoor spray paint for my Dollar Tree Garden Stakes I didn’t seal them, just took them outside the placed them in my garden!
And that’s it!
I image I’ll need to refresh these every year or two, so I’ll keep you updated on how long they last! Make sure to check out my Short YouTube video!
