I love using a mixture of greenery - I think it adds so much interest and dimension to a design. One of my favorites is Lily grass.
I start by inserting the root of the blade deep into the florist foam cage.
I'm going to have a little fun by looping the grass blades around the extension rods. I'll hold the grass blades in place with a little dot of floral clay. (I told you that stuff comes in handy!)
As I loop the grass around the rod, you can see the small dot of floral clay that I already have in place on the rod.
I position the grass the way I want it before pressing the side of the grass against the floral clay.
The result is a fun twirl of grass that adds a funky bit of interest to the design!
