Over the years, I have saved every plant identification tag from every plant I have used in my garden. I used them to learn and identify each plant and used them in a journal and a scrapbook. I still have many left and thought there some way I could use them.
Then I had an Idea. Just use them as Art and then I could enjoy them all year long. I first selected a few that I liked the best.
Then I painted a piece of cardboard with Rust-Oleum Hammered Finish paint, since I wanted it to look like galvanized metal.
Next I cut each tag and a piece of the cardboard and attached the tag with a piece of foam tape to add some dimension.
The last step was to arrange on a piece of card stock and attached with more foam tape.
And the last step was to place in a freshly spray painted frame.
My art was done and ready to enjoy!
