I realize I’m a little too late for the real grass part tutorial for you grow it in time for this Easter (sorry!), but you can “Pin” it to do next year! And you can grow some in mini pots to use as decorative grass for a window or mantel, which I’m also doing! Not to mention, I used organic wheatgrass, so if you really want to, you could run it through a juicer and drink it. 🙂 (Not my plan but you totally can).
I found the cute buckets and little black pots at Target and ordered Todd’s Seeds organic wheatgrass, from Amazon. I followed these instructions on the Todd’s Seeds website (<–open link for details on how to sprout and plants your seeds!), with minor modifications since I grew it in buckets/pots instead of a tray (see pictorial below…I used paper towels on top in place of the newspaper suggested in the instructions).
My kindergartener has been learning about the lifecycle of a seed at school so it was great timing for growing our own grass. This stuff grows FAST! I started sprouting in water it on April 2 which took two days. I planted on April 3 and by April 7 it was growing! By the 14th it looked like it does in the main pictures of this post, so it’s roughly a 2 week process.
Then I downloaded this cute bunny from the Silhouette store. I didn’t use the tail and I added my kid’s names in the design and then cut on vinyl using my Silhouette CAMEO. I used transfer paper to put it on the buckets. Then I just rolled pipe cleaners and hot glued them on the pail.
