Easter Grass – Thinking Outside Of The Basket
SUNDAY, APRIL 11, 2010 | Comments: 0
Easter grass comes in great colors and has a light-catching sparkle to it – why not give it a try outside of the Easter basket?
- LED tea lights sparkle and add a warm glow to a nest of hot pink grass. I like the Dr. Seussian look to these. I always want to add dramatic lighting to every table – the nice thing about these is they are safe for kids and interesting to look at.
To make these – wrap grass around LED light and secure with a small clear hair elastic (sold by the bag in hair supply sections of most stores), turn light on and rest on table. I formed a ball shape so these don't have a flat surface – they rest on the table as if they are floating.
Use left over grass to line a gift box.
I made a decorative flower for a gift bag – I like the Asian feel to this look.
To make gift bag flower – grab a handful of grass and pull into a thick strand. Fold over and secure with an elastic to form a loop.
Fan the loop out to spread grass into a flower shape.
Cut two leaves out of green tissue paper.
Tuck leaves into elastic.
I hot glued a yellow craft pompom into the center of my flower – but you could use anything – a button, a felt circle – whatever you like.
