What supplies do I need to make a Dried Pampas Grass Wreath DIY?
How do I make an Abstract Pampas Grass Wreath?
I have been crazy for Pampas Grass for a while and even wrote a post all about the best locations online to buy pampas grass. However, for this project I was gifted a huge bucket of Pampas Grass from a local floral shop, Floriography.
The first step for this project was to cut down the long Pampas Grass stems. I only needed to have a few inches of stem to tuck into my willow wreath form.
Next, I started tucking the ends of a few grass strands into my wreath form. I added hot glue to provide extra holding power to each stem.
As you glue in a piece of dried grass, you continue around the wreath – creating a gorgeous fan like pattern. I stopped adding the grasses a little bit before I got to the halfway point.
The next step, really added a subtle drama to my wreath and quite possibly was my favorite part!
I took all the Pampas Grass stems that I had originally cut and gathered them together in descending order of length.
I then began to slowly hot glue each stem together at a slight angle. After each stem was secured, I would hold it up to my wreath form to make sure I was following a similar circular pattern as the wreath.
After the wreath is mostly done, it’s time to head outside and give the Pampas grasses a heavy duty coat of hairspray. This will help to keep the grass intact and not blowing apart every time someone walks past it!
Once all of the grass stems were glued together, I added a line of hot glue all along the top portion and secured them to the back of my wreath.
The final product was this GORGEOUS abstract dried grass arrangement.
I decided to hang it just below the perfectly imperfect Behr Thermal paint line and I love the way it so nicely frames the space.
It perfectly pulls in the straw colors from my Spoonflower pillows and our existing window shutter colors.
I asked my husband what he saw when he looked at my Pampas Grass wreath and he said a woman with big hair. I see almost an abstract eye… which is a little creepy but I love this wreath so so much, that I’m okay with it – ha!
