if you been reading, you may know that i'm growing my garden from seeds this year. here is a little update on the progress.
with so much growing going on around here, i needed to start thinning the new seedlings. the conundrum: what do do with the thinned sprouts??? the fix: a few modge-podged baby food jars and some old polymer clay tags.
the result: perfect little jars that will allow the seedlings to prepare for transplanting. these will make cute (and cheap) gifts and for now look adorable on my kitchen window sill.
what i did:
1) i cut strips of paper to cover the flat part of each baby food jar.
2) using matte mod podge, i adhered the strips to the surface, let each jar dry, and then sealed them with more podge.
3) i placed a rock and the bottom of each jar to aid water drainage, filled them with Miracle Grow Organic Choice potting soil and planted my seedling.
4) using a few polymer clay tags (from a craft project gone awry), i labeled them with a sharpie and tied each tag around the jars with hemp twine.
