How To Make Seed Tape For Easy Spring Planting
Instead of spending money on the seed tape to buy one, make your own! With DIY SEED TAPE idea given here!
Spring planting is (finally) upon us! You may already have some plants in the ground depending on where you live, or you may be just starting to clean up and prep your garden space. Wherever you may be in your process, it’s always nice to figure out a way to streamline things a little bit. That’s why some clever person invented seed tape, a roll of perfectly spaced seeds contained in a strip of paper that you can cut to whatever length you want. But rather than spending the extra money to purchase seed tape, especially if you already have seeds at home, why not make your own instead?
This project from Jessica of Mad in Crafts for several reasons. It’s easy to make, incredibly economical, and it lets you plan out your planting beforehand, which saves time when you’re ready to plant. It also helps prevent seeds from being washed away or forced too deeply into the soil when they are first watered.
Start in the morning, and you’ll be done before lunchtime!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- White party streamers
- Measuring tape or ruler
- Prepared cornstarch “glue” (recipe below)
- A small paintbrush (optional)
