Create your own mini wild flower garden using these simple DIY seed bombs!
You will need:
Blender or food processor
Wildflower seeds (small seeds work best)
Step 1. Tear scrap paper into small pieces. You can use any paper as long as it isn’t shiny, coated or glittery. Newspaper, tissue paper, old drawings, homework and bank statements work really well!
You will need around half a sheet of A4 per bomb.
Step 3. Put your soggy paper porridge into a blender or food processor. If you’re creating different colours remember to blend them separately. Give it a whizz until it’s nice and pulpy! (You might need to pour a little water in with the paper to help your blender)
Step 4. Pour the pulp back into its bowl. Squeeze it in your hands – what does it feel like? It is cold? Squeeze out the excess water. You may need to drain it through a sieve if it’s too sloppy to handle.
- If you’re using a mould or icecube tray, half fill each section and then sprinkle some of your chosen wildflower seeds on top. Then simply pop some more paper pulp on top and leave to dry overnight.
- If you are rolling little balls, sprinkle some seeds in to your bowl of paper pulp and then just grab and little handful and roll! Then pop them on a baking tray to dry overnight.
