Pampas Grass Hoop Wreath Instructions:
Making a pampas grass wreath is a pretty simple process. The key to creating a great wreath with this dried grass is having a sturdy wreath form. The base of my wreath was a metal wreath hoop. It worked perfectly to hold the stems of the grass in place.
Before you start creating your pampas grass wreath, it’s a good idea to take a few steps to prepare your grass for crafting:
- Let the stems rest in the sun. If your pampas grass was shipped to you, it will need a few minutes to acclimate to your environment. After unpacking your grass from the shipping box, place it in a sunny spot for around an hour. The sun will help fluff up the branches.
- Treat the pampas grass. Since you’ll be moving the grass around as you make your wreath, you may want to take a second to treat the grass with floral protectant spray or hairspray. Simply spray the grass and allow it to dry to keep the leaves from falling off as you build your wreath.
Once your pampas grass is ready to go, you can start building your wreath. First, cut the stem off the pampas grass up to the section of the stem where the leaves start. Secure the end of the stem to the wreath form with floral wire.
Continue adding stems to the wreath form until you’re satisfied with the amount of grass you have on your wreath. You can cover the whole wreath form with pampas grass or half the wreath.
When you have your stems secured to the form, start from the bottom and carefully bend the grass stems along the wreath form. Place a short piece of floral wire under the leaves of the grass, along the stem, and secure it in place by twisting the wire in the back of the wreath form. Continue this process with each of the grass stems.
After all your stems are secured in place, lightly shake the wreath to knock loose any leaves that have come off the stems as you were working. Use a piece of twine to cover the end of the bottom stem by tightly wrapping the twine around the stem.
Hang your pampas grass hoop wreath on display.
