Jar Seed Sprouting DIY

This is a great project for all of those extra jars you have around your house. Join us on April 22nd (earth day) at Luna's Living Kitchen  from 11:30-2:00pm where will be making these little seed sprouters. Just bring a jar and we will provide the rest.

  • Jars with lids (these are from Luna's) 
  • Organic potting soil 
  • Rocks 
  • Organic herb seeds (we used basil and cilantro 
1. Gently place the rocks in the bottom of the jar.
2. Fill the jar 3/4 of the way with soil.
3. Place 5-6 seeds on top of soil, lightly cover with soil; water and place lid on top.
4. Seeds should sprout within 5-7 days and can be transplanted once they mature a bit.

DIY // Feathers in a Hat

Yes. Pretty much everyone has these kind of wide-brimmed fedora hats at this point. They are cute, they make you look interesting.  While you may have purchased the hat from Urban Outfitters, the feathery little addition will say "Maybe this hat was passed down from my grandpa!". In the spirit of personal style, make this thing for yourself. It's easy, anyway.


  • 3 -5 Feathers (any type of your choosing, smallish being more preferable) 
  • Leather strap, long enough to fit the circumference of your head + some 
  • Needle 
  • Thread 
  • Scissors 
  • Hat (lol) 
1. Using the needle and thread, pierce the ends of the feathers and thread the string right through them. You may need a thimble for this, depending on how tough your fingers are / how strong your resolve is. 2. Tie the trio of feathers to the leather strap at the point of which the two pieces meet and a knot is created. 3. Slip the entire piece around the hat.
