How To Make Your Own Holiday Seed Bombs

The holidays are quickly approaching, whether you're ready or not! We created this tutorial to show you how you can make your own Holiday themed Seed Bombs for gift giving or even for just a simple afternoon craft at home with your kids. 


Before You Get Started You'll Need A Few Things:

  • Clean Sponge
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Silicone Mold
  • Strainer
  • Construction Paper
  • Large Bowl
  • Water
  • Blender
  • and SEEDS! 

 

Lets Get Started!

1. Gather your supplies and begin by ripping apart your construction paper into small pieces and placing them into a bowl.


2. Once all of your paper is hand shredded, add enough water to cover the paper and let it sit for about 10 minutes, absorbing some of the water. 

3. Move the shredded paper & water into your blender and gently "pulse", creating a large pulp. 



4. Strain your paper/water mixture through a strainer over your bowl. Using the spatula squeeze as much moisture out of the paper as you can.



5. Grab your silicone mold and press a layer of paper pulp into the individual holes. 



6. Once your first layer of paper is down, sprinkle some of your favorite variety of seeds, such as wildflowers or herbs, into the holes of your mold on top of the layer of paper pulp you just laid.



7. Top your seeds with another layer or two of paper pulp, maybe even a different color of paper like we showed you in this tutorial. 



8. Using your sponge, press the pulp firmly into the mold. This will ensure there are no gaps in your paper as well as helping to absorb any moisture that's still in the paper. 

9. Let your seed bombs dry for at least 24 hours, and once completely dry you can remove them from the mold, wrap and then give away! (or plant!)

    Tips and Tricks:

    • Use different shaped molds, as well as different colored construction paper to make a variety of colors and shapes!
    • Allow your seed bombs to dry for at least 24 hours or more before removing them from the mold. If they are taking a long time to dry, after 24 hours carefully remove them from the mold and place on a cooling rack and allow to finish drying. Patience is key.
