Grass head men

Grass hair men

These little guys will be looking cute with grass for hair in a short couple of weeks.  What a fun project Рand it will be just as much fun to check your little guy each day for progress!

Things you will need:

  • Stockings, preferably not too thick
  • Soil
  • Grass seed or mustard seed
  • Felt, buttons, string etc to decorate
  • Craft glue

What to do:

1. Cut off a foot off the stockings, approximately 20cm long.  The toe part will form the top of the head.

2. Stretch this over a mug and sprinkle some seeds in first then the soil, about enough to fill the mug. Tie a knot in the stocking and this is the head

3. Decorate the face however you like, I made a nose by pinching a bit of soil and tying some string around it.

4. Name your little guy and sit him in a saucer somewhere inside with plenty of sun – and don’t forget to give him a little drink of water each day.¬† Within a couple of weeks your new friend should have a head of bright green hair!
