Spring is budding, and we gardeners are eager to get our seeds started! Mark your vegetable babies with these charming watercolour and calligraphy signs, that are the perfect combination of classy and country.

Here’s What You Need:

Cut rectangles out of the paper. I recommend testing your pen on the paper first, as pens or calligraphy ink can bleed on some watercolour papers. Paint a vegetable on each card. These can be as simple as smudges of green, orange, red, etc. that you add pen detail to later.


With the calligraphy pen, write the name of the vegetable on the card. You can also add pen details to the vegetables.

To make them waterproof, laminate the cards.

Glue a popsicle stick, dowels or chopstick onto the back of each card.

Now your spring scene is complete, with delightful touches of delicate watercolour!

    My favourite thing about Spring is the anticipation of what is to come. It is a time of new beginnings and hopefulness. Flower beds start to revive, with daffodils at the forefront, trumpeting the way ahead! Trees bud and birds make themselves heard. New life abounds. Spring is in the air, everywhere.
