I have been itching to make some things to put in my garden to give it a bit of Vintageness and in my typical usual hording ways I had been collecting tins …. EVERYTHING can be re purposed in my house!! LOL!!
I went onto one of my many favorite blogs Knick of Time to find these great Antique Seed printables. Using Microsoft Publisher I adjusted the labels to the size of the cans, then sent them to print. I printed them onto Kraft adhesive paper.
Once they were printed I cut them to size and using my distress ink I went around the outside of the labels to give them a nice aged look.
After removing the backing I attached them to the tins and using my thumb I burnished the labels to the tins in a circular motion.
This also got rid of any air bubbles.
I then gave them a coat of mod podge to seal against any moisture. Once the tins were dry , using a hammer and a small size nail I hammered a few holes in the bottom of the tins to allow drainage.
I then added these sweet pansies which would have to be one of my favorite flowers! Their little faces fill my heart with warmth even though it’s a chilly 3 degrees outside at the moment!
While I was waiting for the mod podge to dry, I painted up these two terracotta pots, lightly distressed the numbers and then sealed them. Then added these little sweeties!
Now I can go out and enjoy a little tiny part of my garden while the rest of the garden is a work in progress!Happy Gardening!
