DIY She Shed garden sign
Learn how to create a charming and easy DIY She Shed garden sign for your own garden shed or potting bench! Step-by-step instructions.
Back when two garden-themed stencils were developed, Grit Antiques came out with a She Shed project.
I didn’t design a stencil that said She Shed! Miss Clever Jane just got all creative with Shed and made it up.
Ever since that project, I vowed to create my own She Shed garden sign at some point!
And today was the day. This charming sign made for indoor or outdoor use was so easy to make, and would be perfect to hang up on a potting bench or right on your own garden shed! This garden sign is lightweight, easy to design it in the dimensions of choice, and is versatile to use in a number of ways!
Here’s how to spruce up your own yard or shed with this charming garden sign!

DIY She Shed garden sign
You’ve seen this little soil sifter before, as a Super Market grocery magnetic board.
But I couldn’t pass up this easy little garden supply organizing idea… garden-themed in more ways than one.
Anyone else love and collect antique soil sifters? Or is this a drying rack? I really don’t even know. But anything wood and metal cage-ish is a-ok in my book!

s-hooks for garden supply hangers
paint of choice – I like using Fusion Mineral Paint’s Coal Black (website link)
Designing the sign
This entire sign was stenciled in Fusion Mineral Paint’s Coal Black.
1. Design your sign by measuring the words and elements you wish to use.
2. Position the stencil in the appropriate place, then stencil SHED only.
3. Reposition the stencil again to stencil SHE out of SHED only.
4. Move the potted flowers to the middle of the sign between She Shed, then center it horizontally and vertically before stenciling.
5. Position and stencil the MY from Welcome to My Garden stencil on the left of She.
How to stencil without paint bleed
- Load the stencil brush with paint.
- Remove most paint onto a rag until the stencil brush feels dry.
- Tap or swirl paint through the stencil for desired effect.
How to install the sign
For installation, the soil sifter was attached to the wall first with screws through the mesh, but backwards. This is so the S hooks had some space in between the wire and the wall.
Then the sign board was attached with screws, some hitting the sifter, some hitting the wall.
The sign board was left a little longer, providing more hanging space for a roll of string, and a potted plant!
Add a potting bench for extra garden storage
And the perfect finishing touch? Adding an old storage cupboard on casters for loading up even more garden supplies to use as a potting bench or simply a way to organize your garden tools would be a wonderful addition!
And don’t forget to add a handy clipboard, so you can sketch layouts for your new flower bed designs! Or add a few clothes pins to save those plant coupons!
This She Shed sign would look equally charming attached to your own garden shed, don’t you think? This garden sign would also make a lovely birthday gift for a friend or that green thumb enthusiast in your life!
