Make Your Own Handmade Seed Bombs

This is the easiest handmade seed bombs tutorial I’ve come across so I wanted to share with you. They make the cutest gifts for flower lovers.

I wanted to make something for Valentine’s Day to give to a few family members and childminder handmade by my toddler (with maybe a little assistance!)

I have seen lots of seed bomb recipes with tricky ingredients or lots of steps. This one just required a few things and was easy to do with a 2 year old.

All you need is:

  • Flour
  • Compost
  • A packet of seeds (we chose wildflower seeds to create a meadow like effect)
  • A cup of water

What do you do:

1. Mix in a bowl, 3 cups of compost, 1 cup of flour and your packets of seeds.

2. Add a little water until you get a firm playdough sort of texture.

3. Using your hands mould small shaped handmade seed bombs, about the size of a ping pong ball. We created heart shapes for valentines day. Place them on a tray to dry for 24 hours. We used our airing cupboard.

I laughed coz they don’t look too great on the eye while they’re still wet! They look better once dried!

4. Once dry, pop in a little gift bag and add a tag with instructions. ‘Pop in a plant pot or the ground and water every so often.’

5. We made a heart stamped card to go with ours and popped in a gift bag.

These handmade seed bombs make a fab little gift for lots of occasions. Or why not favours for a party or wedding!
