How To Make Seed Starter Pots Out Of Newspaper

Posted Apr 08 2011 11:07pm

When I went to YouTube to see if there was a video that shared how I was taught to make these newspaper seed pots I could not find the exact version

And while I appreciate many things about YouTube, when I am learning how to make something  I have to say a video sometimes frustrates me


here is my version of how to…

Of course. I didn’t have a boo clue how to make these before a few weeks ago when I took this lovely local workshop .

I am going to help kids make these all day tomorrow at the Illinois Sustainable Living And Wellness Expo

Note: I have these images sized small because of the number of them, you can click on the image to make it larger if you care to

Here are the directions:

1. one newspaper sheet, multiple ply

2. fold in half lengthwise

3. fold to make a triangle

4. cut at bottom

5. unfold and count three ply of squares

6. fold into thirds one way and then the other

7. unfold and cut all four corners/use fold lines as a guide

8. gather corners from two sides to form a square and staple

9. complete with other sides

10. fill with seed starter soil ( seed starter soil is not expensive – it’s different from top soil or potting soil – who knew!), use a pencil to measure appropriate seed depth, plant seeds!!

11. water, place in container and cover.

Look! I have radish plant starts!!! My very own! From seed!!
