This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

If you are ready to add a spruce if gorgeous-ness (because that’s totally a word) to your yard, these seed bombs take the cake! They are a super fun and easy craft to make and it’s so fun and exciting to see what pops up out of the ground after you plant them!

Supplies needed:
– Tissue paper, newspaper, recycled packing paper, or other paper of choice
– Wildflower seed mix of your choice (you can find it by the box at most dollar stores)
– Mixing bowl
– Water

When deciding what type of paper you wish to use, you have many options. This craft is a great way to recycle newspaper, packing paper, tissue paper, or any extra paper you have. It will help if the paper is thin and NOT cardstock.

Directions:
1. Begin by tearing the paper into strips. Size doesn’t matter much, just so the pieces are a good 2 by 2 inches in size at least and not small confetti sized pieces.

2. In the mixing bowl, add a tablespoon of water.
3. Add in the strips of paper and sprinkle the top with a tablespoon of seeds.


4. Start mixing the paper and seeds with your hands. Continue to squish the paper and seeds together and roll them into a ball. If the mixture is too wet and won’t stick, add more paper strips to help absorb some of the liquid.
5. Continue rolling the paper and seed mixture into a ball. If you wish to really keep the ball tight, take an additional strip of paper and wrap it around the finished ball. Dab at it with wet fingers to help it all stick in place.


6. Place the seed bombs on a tray or plate and allow them to dry. It will take about 24 hours for them to fully dry.

To plant your seed bombs, simply dig a hole about 4 inches deep and drop the entire bomb into your soil. Allow it plenty of light and water, and within a few weeks you should see it start to sprout!
