DIY – Cress cups with a face

cute cress cups with a face diy

Cress is a lovely herb that tastes great on a sandwich with cheese or cream cheese. It’s also a herb that is really easy to grow at home. Within days you can harvest from your own little window garden. When I found these little sake cups at the thrift store I immediately saw some great looking cress planters in them. Because what looks better then a cute little face with some green hair? This is also a great little project to do with kids. The growing of the seeds doesn’t take much patients!

Learn how to make these cute little cress cups with a face after the jump. . .

What you need for cress cups with a face

– white sake cups (a small bowl or teacup will work too)
– black ceramic marker
– oven
– cotton pads
– cress seeds

How to make these cute cress cups with a face

1. Clean your cups very well.
2. Draw cute faces on your sake cups with your black ceramic marker. Bake in the oven according to the instructions on your ceramic marker.
3. Place a few layers of cotton pads in your cups. If your cups are bigger than mine you can also use regular wadding. Water it well. Make sure it’s completely soaked in water.
4. Put cress seeds on top of the cotton pads. Place the your cress cups in a light area but not in full sunlight.
5. In the next couple of days your cress will grow very fast. Don’t forget to water your little plants!

Aren’t they cute? XO Wilma

    Your little planter cups are so cute!! I grew bean sprouts in the same way back then, but only in a boring plastic container. Recently I’m into mini gardening. Thanks for the inspiration! 😀

Vill en göra det ännu roligare kan en göra små figurer av krukorna med den växande krassen. Se hur Wilma på By Wilma har gjort sina krukor med hjälp av porslinsfärg. […]

    I put lemon seeds in a pretty green tall coffee cup, put pea gravel on top of seeds in the dirt. They are growing and are making a pretty plant. Don’t expect any lemons but it’s fun.
    Also, I cut the bottom off a bunch of celery and put it in very little water for about a week and when it started sprouting, I put it in the dirt and it’s also growing. A very pretty plant also.
