Wildflower Seed Bombs for Earth Day

Wildflower Seed Bombs for Earth Day

Have you ever re-repurposed something? In other words, you repurposed an item…and then decided to repurpose it again as something else. Well, to celebrate Earth Day this year, I decided to re-repurpose a small muffin pan that I had upcycled for the Charlotte Region ReStore(s)’ blog. And for its second project, I wanted to make some wildflower seed bombs.

For the Charlotte Region ReStore blog, I used this mini muffin tin to create a felt succulent desktop garden. The small cups were the perfect size to hold a dozen little DIY felt succulents that I had made.

See what I mean? SO CUTE!

But since nothing I did to the muffin pan was permanent, it seemed like an ideal candidate to challenge my re-repurposing skills. Especially with Earth Day on the horizon!

And that’s when I decided to make some wildflower seed bombs using the muffin tin as a mold. And if you’re not sure what a seed bomb is, just keep reading!

DIY Seed Bombs in a Small Muffin Pan

Muffin pans (of various sizes) or other molded baking pans are pretty easy to find at thrift stores. In fact, I’ve already upcycled a standard sized muffin tin once before.

Ironically, for another plant-related project, no less!

I’m not sure why I keep associating muffin tins with growing things, but clearly I do!

Anyway, for this re-repurposing idea, I was left with this mini pan after I removed the felt succulents.

And, just as I had hoped, the small muffin pan worked like a charm for my wildflower seed bombs! They may not be pretty, but they will be after I plant them.

If you’re not familiar with what a seed bomb is, it’s simply a way to hold seeds together in a small, decomposable package. The entire thing can be planted in the ground; no extraneous packaging required.

If you are interested in the full tutorial for creating these wildflower bombs, please pop on over to the Charlotte Region ReStore’s blog post! All the details and step-by-step photos can be found on their website- thanks for understanding!

Upcycling ideas with Habitat Restore Charlotte RegionThis project is really a grand slam in terms of repurposing for Earth Day. When you read the full tutorial on their blog, you’ll see why! Hint- the muffin tin wasn’t the only thing I recycled for this project.

So, now you might be wondering, “Now what? What do I do with these things?”. The simple answer is, of course, to plant them.

But they’re also ideal to give as little thank-you or thinking-of-you gifts to friends, neighbors, teachers, and co-workers.

Or, for the eco-conscious bride, they’re an easy DIY favor to hand out to wedding guests, as well.

As for my wildflower seed bombs? Well, as it turns out, we’re building a new, energy-efficient home here in the Charlotte, NC area! So, I’ll probably bring a few to the job site right before a rain storm and plant them at the edge of what will be our new yard.

Maybe it’ll be a beacon to birds and pollinators alike that our yard will be wildlife-friendly!

I hope you enjoyed this super simple, but awfully sweet re-repurposing idea for wildflower seed bombs! And as always, I appreciate your understanding that the full tutorial is on the ReStore blog, and not mine.
