How to Make the Vintage Seed Pack Wall ArtStep 1 If you have raw, new-looking edges on your pieces of wood or if you’re using unfinished wood, then I recommend applying some dark stain with a rag to “age” them nicely. Alternatively, if you’re using unfinished wood, you can paint them the color of your choice using craft paint or whatever you have on hand. Green goes quite nicely with these seed packs. Step 2 To hang my little pieces of art, I applied claw hangers to the top of the back, but you could just as easily staple gun some twine to the back, allowing it to show from the front or not. [optional] For items I plan on selling, I like to attach a business card, or in this case, just a paper scrap with my blog URL on it, in the corner. I have a small pile of these precut and ready to dab with some tacky glue and quickly adhere to the back of projects. Step 3 Lightly sand the backs of two paperclips, then clip them onto the seed pack in the appropriate locations. Center the clipped pack onto the wood and glue the clothespins into place using the Weldbond (or tacky) glue. You may remember I used this same process of hanging “art” from clothespins using a stylized definition of “farmhouse” not too long ago. You can see that project here. And your done–easy as 1-2-3! I found these seed packs in the public domain and altered them by adding “Shaker Seed Co.” to the bottom. Feel free to download them from the Member Library and make use of them however you like.
