My sister-in-law & I decided to grow some wheat grass in some tea cups for the easter centerpiece this year. Super simple. Just fill your desired container with some potting soil. If you have 2 weeks or more, you may simply plant some spring or soft white wheat into the solid and keep moist until sprouted. It is also beneficial to keep covered with plastic wrap so the moisture will stay in the soil, thereby allowing the wheat to sprout faster. If you don't have 2 weeks, but only a week, you can soak the wheat over night in some water. The next morning, plant as previously described. These grasses grew like this in about 5 to 6 days. I was actually out of town and came back to them all grown. Lovely!! Can't wait to put some little eggs in them!
Our first Pinterest Club was last nite!! My lovely sister-in-law & I are co-chairing a new club that meets on the 3rd Tues. of every month at 7p. We have a Facebook page and post the pics and supplies needed for each project. Last night we did these super simple spring wreaths, as well as the cute little spring chicks! The necklaces were a hit. Alyssa made one, and my super crafty friend, Elizabeth made like 3 or 4!! She tutored Britt on how to make them. She really can do just about anything!! Love that girl! We had about 10 ladies and had a great time. We had 2 ladies bring treats off of Pinterest. Salsa & some Sopapilla Cheesecake bars. Both were delicious! Such a fun nite!! Love it!
