The Garden Pole

This was one of those really enjoyable projects. It did take me almost a month to complete, but it was well worth it.
When I first thought to make a garden pole, I looked on Pinterest and searched the internet for different poles and how they were used.  What I saw was that basically,  anything goes.  Some had wrap around designs while others had simple stripes and polka dots.  I also saw some with lots of different bird houses attached all over the pole.  I immediately fell in love with the garden pole.  I found the idea of painting freehand very intimidating at first, but once I got started, and I realized that it didn’t have to be perfect, the creativity started to flow.  What I quickly learned is that, if I painted something that I really hated, I could wipe it off or just paint over it.  The paint over did happen several times, but I ended up with something I really love and looks great in the garden.      I have bird feeders on it now, but I do alternate between hanging plants and lanterns.
