How to Plant an Easter Garden


Easter-GardenThis is a really easy project you can do for Easter, but it does take some pre-planning. That’s why I’m telling you about it now. :)

We’ve tried the Resurrection Cookies in the past, but we really didn’t care for the taste. So this will be something fun that we won’t need to eat.

Here are the directions:

Using potting soil, a tiny buried flower pot for the tomb, shade grass seed, & crosses made from twigs. Sprinkle grass seed generously on top of dirt, keep moistened using a spray water bottle. Spritz it several times a day. Set it in a warm sunny location. Sprouts in 7-10 days so plan ahead. The tomb is EMPTY! He is Risen! He is Risen indeed! ♥
Note: This is not my own idea, but one that a friend sent to me, which we are planning to try for Easter. I believe the original idea and photo are from Melissa Holt, who shared the idea on Facebook. I thought it was an incredible craft idea, and wanted to share it with my friends. Apparently, others thought it was awesome, too, since it looks as if this picture has been shared on Facebook over 3,300 times.

  • The Easter Garden project – What size container is that in? I would like to do this and to find the containers at a reasonable price as I would need about 25. Any suggestions?

    • Leah,

      I haven’t made this project yet, but I did stop by Home Depot today to look for the containers. Home Depot has an 8 inch terra-cotta saucer for $2.98, if that’s in your price range. There’s also a 6″ one for $1.27. I may try Walmart or Lowe’s to see what’s available there, too.

      Hope that helps! I love your idea to make it a group project!

  • Thank you so much for the idea! Easter is one of the most important holidays to me and I strongly dislike the traditional Easter decorations (ie eggs, bunny, etc). My mom and I just planted grass for Easter decor for church. I pinned this so that maybe we can do this too! Thanks again! And Yes! He is risen!!!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it as much as I did,, Yvette! My kids can hardly wait to try this project for Easter. So much fun, with such an awesome way to celebrate the true reason for the season!

    Is this your photograph? If not, you should not be linking or posting photos that do not belong to you. Please re-consider.

    • Thank you for your comment. A friend sent the idea and photo to me several days ago. I thought it was such a great craft idea that my friends from church would enjoy it, as well. When I shared this on Facebook, I did mention that the idea was not my own. I thought I had put that here, as well. I have updated the post to reflect this, and have tried to locate the origin of the idea.

  • I posted a link to this on my blog’s tutorial page. If you find out the origin of the photo, let me know. I’d like to give credit where it’s due, although I do appreciate you sharing how to do this!
