Forest Critters are BACK!

 We are currently stocked with all of our best selling Plush Toys! Limited supply on this first drop but we are committed to having them available year round as soon as we possibly can.

I want to personally thank everyone who emailed and continued to support Savage Seeds while I took maternity leave. I am so thankful Savage Seeds was able to grow with our apparel line while I took a brief hiatus from sewing. We will be adding to our apparel and our Owl Costumes and Wings will be ready and available for Halloween 2015.

Many Thanks again!

String Art Valentine's Day DIY

I made this simple Valentine's Day String Wall Art for my sweetie 

and took some pics along the way to share.  

Quick, easy and handmade from the heart. (Awe!) 

Also fun for kids, if your little one loves tools like mine does.

You only need a few items found around your house or at any craft or hardware store -

♥ Red Twine or String

♥ Wood board

♥ Stain or Acrylic Paint

♥  Nails (I used stainless Wire Brads)

♥ Hammer 

♥ Paper, Tape, Scissors

I watered down my paint so that the wood grain could still be seen. Hammer nails in about half way & spaced out evenly. (Cute little kids hammer!)

Tie off string on one nail and get started...

 And

Voilà! Easy Valentine's Day gift made with LOVE by you or your little one for that 

special someone! 

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
