It's Craftastic! Seed Bombs

Posted: Updated:

Seeds

Recyclable paper (with no colored inks), shredded into small pieces

Screen

Food coloring or colored tissue paper

Hand towel

Blender

Mixing bowl

  • Tear or cut the recycled paper into tiny bits. Soak the paper bits in warm water for 30 minutes.
  • While the paper is soaking, prepare a work station by laying a rag or towel on a flat surface.
  • Place the soaked paper in the blender with enough water to cover it. Add food coloring or strips of colored tissue paper. Blend until the paper pieces become a fine pulp.
  • Pour the paper pulp into a mixing bowl. Add seeds and mix gently.
  • Use a small piece of screen to dip out a portion of paper pulp. Squeeze the pulp in your hand to drain excess water.
  • Continue squeezing out the paper pulp until it is drained of all excess water.
  • Once the pulp is squeezed fairly dry, roll it into a ball in your palms.
  • Lay the completed seed bombs on the towel to dry. Allow to dry for 1-2 days before handling. Store them in a dry place until you’re ready to use them.

Planting & Care

  • Place seed paper under a thin layer of loose soil.
  • Water daily until seedlings appear.
  • Water as needed once plants are established.
