The fall is the best time for nature crafts.  To make this Striking Tiger Grass Wreath, all you need to do is gather as much tiger grass as you can!  Tiger grass wreaths make beautiful autumn door decorations or hang it inside over your fireplace.

Striking Tiger Grass Wreath

Materials:

  • Plumes from 1 mature tiger grass plant
  • 8 Blades from tiger grass
  • Small Styrofoam wreath
  • Glue gun
     

Instructions:

  1. Cut down as many plumes as you can. Depending on your wreath size, you may need more or less. Leave 5 inches of stalk from the plume.

  2. Holding the plume stalks on an angle, push them through the Styrofoam. You will want to stagger the plumes so that you avoid having any bare spots in your finished wreath. To do this, create a triangular pattern using 3 plumes for each triangle. Trim the stalks that are sticking through the back with a scissor.

  3. Using a glue gun, glue the blades of grass to the inside of the wreath. This will cover any white showing through from where the plumes don't reach.

  4. Trim remainding grass blades to 3 inches and glue around the back of the wreath (f you are hanging it on a door with glass windows, this will keep you from looking at a foam back).

  5. Gently shake it to fill it out. Hang with twine or a wreath hanger.

This is a very beautiful wreath and the instructions are easy to understand. I can't wait to get my grass to start my own.
