Grass Head

By Nicky Kipling

A grass head can be kept indoors or outdoors and is a good starter to get your kids into gardening.


You will need:

  • Old nylon stockings or pantyhose
  • Grass seeds
  • Sawdust or potting mix for stuffing
  • Small yoghurt cup
  • Decorations
  • Water-proof glue


  1. Cut off 20cm section of stocking that includes the toe. 
  2. Stretch the stocking over a large cup or mug, and spoon in about 2 teaspoons full of grass seeds.
  3. Pack in some sawdust or potting soil, roughly tennis ball sized.
  4. Tie a knot to close the end. 
  5. You can make a bulbous nose or ears by grabbing a bit of stocking and twisting. Fasten base of the nose with some thread or a small rubber band.
  6. Decorate.

Notes: Keep moist daily.
