How To Make Your Own Garden Label Stakes For Mother’s Day:

  1. Using your pliers and floral wire, gently bend the wire and write the word “Mom” in cursive. The overall size and shape will vary due to preference, but ours was 11-1/2”.
    Note: If it helps to have a stencil to use as a guide while bending the wire, we recommend writing the word “Mom” on a piece of paper, then tracing over it with your wire as you bend. 
  2. Once your wire label has been shaped, strengthen its body by twisting additional strands of green wire around the lettering. Repeat 2x.
  3. After your label body has been formed, arrange your mini paper roses throughout the wire lettering and use their wire stems to secure them.
  4. Create anchor points to help hold your label in place and upright by gluing your wood sticks onto the first and last letters of your sign. 
  5. Finally, insert your sign into your floral arrangement and enjoy!
