My ivy is a little out of control but it filled in the spot nicely.
I have a bunch of old seed packets somewhere that I wanted to use and I see them all the time (except when I want to photograph them, and I bet they turn up tomorrow), but in a pinch I used some of my vintage postcards to illustrate the use of the rake.
Old photos would work nicely too.
After I took this photo and the glue had set up, I took more wire and laced it over the rake handle to make sure the handle stayed flush with the back. The wire around the rake as you see it here can work as a place to hang this project if you so desire. Of course, once the glue dried I removed my tape. I'll just let this set in my yard for a while and let the wire rust a bit so it blends with the rest of the materials. Then it will be ready to sell. In the meantime, I think it's kind of cool. Thanks for stopping by.
