Decoupaged Seed Packet Clay Pots

By:

(2 Votes)

2 Comments

Summer is the perfect time to decorate your garden with flower pot crafts. Use discarded seed packets to create decorative additions for your porch or backyard. Decoupaged Seed Packet Clay Pots are easy to make and will help you cut down your trash haul.


 

Materials:

  • 4-inch clay pot
  • 3-4 seed packets
  • Craft paint in a color that coordinates with your seed packets
  • Decoupage medium (Mod Podge)
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Paint the outside, the rim and about an inch or so of the inside of your clay pot. 2 coats may be needed.


     
  2. Allow to dry for 2 hours.
     
  3. Because seed packets are made of thick shiny paper, it's a good idea to dip them in water first.
     
  4. Remove them from the water and gently dab water off both sides with a clean towel. This softens the paper a bit, making it easier to decoupage.
     
  5. Cut seed packet into small squares, approximately 3/4".
     
  6. Apply a coat of decoupage medium to the pot. Place seed packet squares onto the pot and press gently into the decoupage medium. Continue until entire pot is covered, except for the rim, overlapping squares a little to cover pot surface.
     
  7. Apply more medium as needed.
     
  8. When pot is covered, apply a generous (but not dripping) coat of decoupage medium over the top of all the seed packet squares.
     
  9. Allow pots to dry overnight before using.


Note:

  1. If you want these for use outdoors, we suggest an outdoor craft paint and outdoor safe sealer or decoupage medium.

These little pots are adorable - thanks for the inspiration. I believe I will find some pots and decoupage them with herbs and spice packets. How fun to have a row of fresh basil, oregano and thyme in pretty matching pots. Do you seal your pots before painting so the water will not seep through?

very sweet - earlier this summer when looking for seeds, I saw that a company had printed their vintage seed packets - this would look lovely with vintage seed pack pics
