Vintage French Seed Packets Wall Decor & Free Printables!
Do you drool over vintage French seed packets? Yes? I got presents you are going to love :
Some free printable vintage French seed packets of vegetables and flowers for you to download!
Of course we can’t hide such beauties, so let’s take some scrap wood, and make these really easy wall hanging art / decor out of them!
Wouldn’t this be a great gift for some one who loves garden and vintage?
To start, print out the seed packets ( download links at the end), size them to slightly smaller than you scrap pieces of wood.
Stain the wood to a darker old wood color. We used 1″x 6″ pieces left over from our pallet crates project –
The wood is from reclaimed fence boards, and some have chippy paint on them, which is so charming! ( Some of the helpful resources are affiliate links. Full disclosure here. )
Brush some Mod Podge on the back side of the prints, press them onto the wood.
After they dried, brush some more Mod Podge onto the surface of the paper to form a protective film against dirt and stain. Like how we made our designer outlet covers (free printable too)!
To hang our wall art, just cut some brown Jute Rope , take a hot glue gun and glue the rope onto the back, like in the photos below.
You can create individual ones,or several stringed together!
Isn’t this fun? You can also make a piece of art, photo copy it, then attach it to a piece of wood!
Now the free printable downloads!
Have fun!!! =)
There’s no download button for THESE graphics and all your other links just take me to the main craft page! Even in the comment section! I’d love to use these but when I finally FOUND them and clicked on set one- NOTHING happens.
hi! some browsers may block a file from opening. try firefox or chrome, they should work!
I’ve been scrolling up and down for 15 minutes, and I can NOT find the “big button” for downloading the seed packet art! I am already a subscriber, so why am I having this problem??
hi Rose! the red button takes you to a library with ALL the downloads. just follow instructions on top of that page. 🙂
I don’t SEE any red button! As I told you, I scrolled up and down the page many times, and can NOT find any red button. Please be more helpful!
I am sorry to bother you. I need some help as I clicked the big rectangle button to get to the free printable’s page and it brings me to the page explaining how to get to the printable page and doesn’t take me to the actual page. I think I may be doing something wrong, however I don’t know what. Will you please help me? Thank you so much!
hi darlene, A button at the bottom of each newsletter takes you to all downloads, And here- enjoy the dowload page https://www.apieceofrainbow.com/creative-fun/ 🙂
I keep getting the message that “the file has been moved or renamed” when I try to download. I only get this message on a few downloads – not on all of them. Any suggestions?
hi stormee, did you try our subscribers download page here? http://www.apieceofrainbow.com/creative-fun/ it seems to be working fine. =)
I’d love to do something with these but for some reason they aren’t downloading. Got any ideas how I can fix this. Thanks, Mina
hi mina! check your junk folder, the download link should be emailed to you and just right click save when the pdf opens!
Did you use ordinary white print paper? And what kind of printer? Laser or jet?
i linked the paper i used in article, it’s cardstock, & inkjet
I totally made a Spring garland out of these seed packets last year. I can’t remember where I found the download, some public domain site, I think? Anyhow, I adore your blog (this is my first visit!) and have seen so many little bits of inspiration we have in common. (And I use Foodie Pro as well!) It’s so fun to come across a kindred spirit on the internet. Your site, your style and your spirit is beautiful!
very nice, I love vintage things and love crafting
Thank you, will definitely use them!
Love, love, love.
thank you barbara!! =)
Thank you so much for your time and generosity in taking the time to write up tutorials for us and especially for the free downloads. Sure makes life a lot easier for those of us that are not so artistic but love to try!!!

Oh I just love these! Want to do some with some photos I took out in CA. Thanks for the great ideas.
I absolutely love this project Ananda:) We don’t get Mod Podge in Doha-is there an alternative I could use? I think your idea can be used to create chunky coasters or vintage trays- what say? Love and hugs . xx
