Especially for you Nan, this is Idgy’s “How to make a Grass head”. You will need;
Grass seed (you’ll only need a handfull not the whole bag!)
Sock – this is a baby size sock from a bargain pack
Pens to decorate and any bits and bobs you could stick on
A glass or plastic cup to stand your new friend in
Put a handful (this is Rye Grass) of the grass seed into the sock and push right up to the top
Now take the cotton wool and stuff in as much as you can, but make sure you keep the grass seed to the top of the sock.
Squish it all about to that you get a sausage type shape to your sock.
Go on, get arty, make a smily face for your new pal. You could even cut a face out of a magazine and glue that on instead.
Et voila! One new grasshead person for our growing family on the kitchen shelf. Just dip the top of his head in water every couple of days to keep his ‘scalp’ damp. Very soon you (well your new friend anyway) will be rewarded with a few fine sprigs of bright green ‘hair’ and soon a luxuriant growth of verdant green grass will sprout ready to be cut and styled any way you like.
Go on Nan, try this for the kids at Halloween. At least it is something a bit different to take home after the party.
