Pew Decorations

Adding Lily Grass

Your fresh pew decoration is really beginning to take shape!  Note how the greens (while still being kept fairly short and close to the pew) are still very dimensional.

A side view shows that you have a lot of interest going on and you really only need a few more finishing touches to be able to add fresh flowers.

I adore lily grass.  It has broad, glossy green blades and adds so much to every single design.

The blade of lily grass is firm enough that I can slide it into the foam without having to wire or use a wooden pick like I would if I used Bear grass.  A single blade gives a long clean line and draws the eye down the length of the design.

I cut a second piece much shorter and insert it on the left side, under the Israeli Ruscus piece.

Then to jazz it up a bit I cut both ends off to a sharp point and insert both ends into the foam, creating a loop of the grass.

I insert a second loop directly under the first one.

Here's a closer view so you can see what they look like.

Don't feel that you have to use the same exact greens I did.  There are other great choices out there including trailing ivy, Italian Ruscus, Salal tips and more.
