Burns Daisy Co Crate DIY
A crate made from pallet wood and made to look like it was from an old sign from the Burns Daisy Co Crate. I love old signs but even if I had one, I couldn’t bring myself to cut it up and make it into something else, so I did the next best thing.
I have a friend that is as crazy about daisies as I am, and she is also a fan of weathered looking wood, so I got a bright idea for a get well gift. She recently had back surgery and I thought, what better way to say get well, than with daisies!! I brainstormed a little and came up with the idea of using a piece of wood made to look like an old sign, to use for the construction.
For the first step, I just randomly smeared on some paint… I didn’t even use a brush, I used a paper towel!!
Next, I added a little white here and there.
I used my Cricut to cut out the letters, used spray adhesive on the back to make myself a stencil. I sponged on teal to add the name.
I gave it a light sanding to make it look old.
Evidently I didn’t take pictures of the cutting of the wood or what I used to put it together, but I used the chop saw to cut the pieces and the brad nailer to put it together. I left the center divider loose so she could take it out if she wanted to and use it for something else.
After I had put the Mason Jars and flowers in it, I decided it need a daisy painted on it, so again, I used my Cricut to cut one out so I could use it as a stencil. (Little did I know, but she loves Mason jars too)!
I think it gave it just what it needed. Unfortunately, this was the VERY last of my Daisies for this year. I had to improvise and add some Blackeyed Susans, but I think they are quite cheery too.
Now it was time for delivery! We don’t live too far from each other, so I thought I’d run it over on my motorcycle. Luckily it fit nicely in the saddlebag (yes, water and all). I pulled the bags up over the top of the flowers and they made the trip perfectly fine. This wasn’t the first time I’d had flowers in my saddlebag, hahaha!!
She wasted no time finding a perfect spot for it. I was honored that she put it front and center. I hope it cheered her at least for a little while.
I think this would do the trick of cheering me up if it was presented to me. Would it you??
