May waved good-bye in the blink of an eye and June has waltzed her way in! Which means it’s time to bring out the summer decor. Sometimes that means a big change, sometimes a subtle one. Putting seed packets in the kitchen is definitely a subtle one!
This is what my spring white kitchen hutch looked like.
Honestly, I still loved everything on it, I just felt like it needed a little color added.
I found these seed packets on Etsy and knew that they would be a perfect addition to the hutch.
My plan was to hang the seed packets from some twine and make a banner.
Right off the bat that plan changed as the unsealed flap was on the bottom.
Then, I thought that I would cut a slit on both sides of the packet and run the twine through the packet.
However, as you can see, all I did was tear the seed packet! Not good. Ugh.
Then, I remembered these cute black and white paper clips that I use to hang pictures in my office.
Except when I tried to hang the seed packets with the clips, they hung funny.
The clips were too heavy!
So, I grabbed a few small clothes pins that I had in my office to try and hang them.
Ding! Ding! Winner, winner chicken dinner!
The paper clips were the perfect solution.
My only reservation with them is that I didn’t have 4 that were all the same size.
However, I’m not sweating it. I’ll keep my eye out for a pack of small clothes pins on my shopping adventures.
I love that the seed packets in the kitchen add just the perfect amount of color AND they really are the perfect representation of summer!
Until next time….
