Cress-Bunnies DIY

Upcycling in spring: We have brought you a cute DIY craft idea.
The cress bunnies made of old tetrapacks are an eye-catcher on the windowsill and provide the extra topping on your bread.

This is what you need for the cress bunnies:

  • Soil
  • Cress seed
  • An empty milk or juice carton
  • Scissors to cut out the desired shape
  • Colorful pens to decorate the bunnies


Here's how it works:

Step 1: Cut your well-washed empty packaging just below the top edge of the tetrapack.


Step 2: Remove the printed layer of your packaging.


Step 3: Use a dark crayon to draw your desired bunny and then carefully cut it out with scissors.


Step 4: Customize your bunny. For example give him a cute facial expression with different colors.


Step 5: Fill the soil into the designed patch and add the cress seeds

Step 6: Pour the soil with a little water and you're done!


Make sure that your cress gets enough sunlight. After 2 to 3 days it already germinates and after a week it is ready for harvest. 

We wish you a lot of fun with re-crafting!
