Botanical Interest has some of the prettiest seed packets. They look like artwork and it’s hard to throw them away once the seeds are planted. I had purchased several packets at my local garden center with plans to tuck them into Christmas cards. I also needed to purchase a gift for my work’s gift exchange and picked up a couple for my own spring garden. While shopping I took a minute to look at all the pretty garden themed Christmas ornaments. But they were definitely more than I was willing to pay. These packets were pretty enough to be ornaments.
They would not only look pretty on my tree but when given as a gift, at the end of the Holiday Season they could be saved and planted in the spring.
How do you make seed packet ornaments?
These are so easy to make. Just punch a hole in each corner and add garden twine, ribbon or yarn to hang on the tree. I used hole reinforcers over the holes just to give them a little more stability, but it’s not necessary. Invite family and guests to choose their favorite to take home for their tree then plant in the spring.
I found an empty vintage seed packet in my craft supplies and created one for me. What a difference in the price of seeds!
When you can’t be IN your garden during the winter, you can bring the garden in to you.
Happy Holiday Gardening
