DIY Cress Filled Teacups
As you may know, if you read my recent post: Welcoming house plants to the home of a plant murderer. That I am always on the look out for ways to have plants in the house that I am not going to kill.
I remembered that growing cress as a child was really easy and with loads of teacups lying around I though it might be a good idea to put them to good use. Cress with its tiny little leaves is so pretty, really really cheap and also great for eatting! And as a massive plus Inside a teacup it looks like a birdseye view of a tiny little jungle! I choose to use curled leave cress as it looked prettier on the packet, but any cress will do!
How to make your own cress filled teacups:
You will need:
- A Teacup- The prettier the better!
- Cress- I got mine in Wilkinson for around 60p
- Kitchen roll
Fold up a piece of kitchen roll or tissue paper and pop it into your chosen teacup.
Water your kitchen roll, making sure it is well and truly soaked.
Sprinkle your cress seeds onto the tissue, make sure you get a even covering of seeds.
Place your cress on the window sill so it can get lots of light, keep an eye on it and water as needed!
Once it has grown to a sufficient height you can trim it off and eat it! Maybe have a little party and have cress in your sandwiches. Go cress crazy!
I’d love to see how your teacups are looking, let me know with a comment!
