I was at the Dollar General one day and saw that they had a big display of flower and vegetable seeds. I grabbed several, but then the “must recycle everything” portion of my brain kicked in and said “hey, what are you going to do with the empty packets? Hmm?” I like to decoupage clay pots, they turn out so fun, so that’s what I decided to do.
A little color coordinating with paint and the seed packets had to be done first. I started digging through my collection of Patio Paint which I LOVE. I adore how it goes on and stays there, just has such a nice feeling to it! Patio Paint is made for porous surface like clay pots and works beautifully.
This winter has been long, long, long. As you can probably tell from the pictures, I made this project last year when it was still warm and I had lovely plants in the ground and in pots!
If you keep up with me on Instagram, you probably saw plenty of flower and herb pictures last summer. Here’s a fairly new lavender plant I have. I’m hoping this year it’s much bigger!
And you probably remember this guy. I found him at the local flea market and placed him right by my kale plants…
This is what he looked like this winter!
This is something else I can’t wait for. Green grass…
And blue skies…
I cannot wait to get into my garden and plant some herbs so I can welcome my toad back! He’s come back two years in a row, so hopefully I’ll see him again this year. Do you remember this Toads Welcome Herb Sign I made?
Anyway, maybe I can bring some spring into my world with a craft project!
This is a pretty simple craft, all you do is paint the pots and let them dry, then cut the seed packets up and decoupage them onto the pots. Easy peasy! Full printable instructions are at the end of this post. I hope you have fun with this or a similar project.
