You'll need an old wool sweater, empty cans and some starter plants (or seeds.)  Wash the sweater in hot water on the highest agitation setting of your wash to make it felt up.  You can run it through the dryer, too, if you want.  Then cut tubes from the arms that measure the length of the can.  Plant the seedlings and slip the tubes of felted sweater onto the cans.  These also work great as vases and pencil holders.
