Materials List for Garden Art Poles
Art poles come in all sizes and have been made of wood, metal and PVC. The materials may vary depending on which type of pole you start with. Prices will also vary according to your geographic location and the store you purchase from.
(1) 36”, white, 4x4 PVC pole - $20
(2) Cap for pole – $2
(3) Artist acrylic paints – 4-oz tubes (for every color in your design) - $5 per tube. You may need multiple tubes of the colors you use for your base. If you have 10 colors and 4 of the colors require 2 tubes each, the paint will cost around $70.
(4) 1- and 2-inch paint brushes. You can get inexpensive ones online, but be careful of cheap quality brushes that shed. You can find 1-inch
round brushes on Amazon for between $7 and $20 each. We’ll estimate a total of $20 for both brushes.
(5) PVC primer - $10.
(7) Drop cloth, old newspaper, old sheet (you probably have at home).
