“Green Hair” Planters

This project is very easy. You can do it with your children. The only “stressing” part is that you have to wait a couple of days until the “green hair” of the plant begins to take shape. You can use birdseed or any type of grass seeds. The important thing is that the land is kept moist, watering the pot 2 or 3 times a day. Needless to say, this project was made with waste material, so practically the only money spent was for the seeds. The plastic eyes can be replaced by paper or cardboard and secure with glue stick. So just follow the next steps and at the end you will have a “green hair” planter.

Steps 1 – Cut the bottom of a plastic bottle. With a nail make 2 or 3 holes at the base of the bottle so the water can drain when you are watering the plant.


Step 2 – Glue the eyes and nose to the plastic bottle. You can use soda caps. You can also use paper or cardboard to make them.


Step 3 – Fill the containers with soil almost to the top (one cm. before edge).


Step 4 – Cover with a layer of bird seed or chia seeds and cover with more soil.


Step 5 – You have to keep the soil moist, watering the pots 2 up to 3 times per day (the land must be wet all the time). In a couple of days the plants will start to grow and you will have a “green hair” plant.
