Recycling Seed Catalogs Into Whimsy Art!

January 7, 2011

Ahh seed catalog season! I love it. It’s the promise of spring all wrapped up in a catalog. The planning, the day dreaming, the anticipation of garden fresh produce.

I have kept many of these catalogs year to year because I hate to just flip through pages and toss – such a waste so I have been working on projects that will reuse these fabulous catalogs.

The photos in these are of professional quality and are meant to lure you into spending your money on their seeds and plants. Why not reuse these photos in a project or two?

Here is one I did:

Recycle Garden Seed Catalogs into crafts

All that I did here was cut out some photos from a seed catalog and put them in a collage frame I had on hand. I got that frame at a Black Friday sale not having a use for it in mind when I got it so this was the perfect solution.

This large piece of food “art” now hangs in my dining area and is a great compliment to the purpose of the room….eating!

Until next time!
