Spring finally arrived here in Minnesota this weekend, outside and in my house. On Saturday morning I brought the dirt inside and made one big mess.
I have always seen seed bombs at the green house in candy machines and wanted to try make them. Seed bombs are little balls of dirt, dry clay and flower seeds. They are intended to be placed in area’s where gardening in unavailable, but can be placed anywhere.
I found they were a lot easier to make then I thought. Please note: I read many different directions and worked with supplies I had on had.
SUPPLIES: Dirt, dry clay ( found at walmart for $5 in crafting section) wild flower / flower seeds
STEP 1: Mix in small batches, adding dirt and clay together.
STEP 2: Roll into small balls
STEP 3: Add a few flower seeds. The clay will hold the seeds in place. ( don’t add to many)
STEP 4: Set balls out in sun for clay to harden. ( about 24 hours)
STEP 5: Enjoy + Share
TO MAKE THE BAG:
I placed sticker letters in the middle of a small canvas bag. Using distress ink (for scrapbooking) mix with water in a small spray bottle. Spray over the stickers. I added more ink as I went to get a darker ombre look. Once the bag is dry, remove letters ( ok, I removed them right away, but best if you wait till it’s dry)
Crossing my fingers those little seeds grow, and make beautiful wildflower bouquets.
