I gently work on the blade of steel grass, flexing it between my fingers to make it more pliable.
The ends of this grass variety inserts easily into the foam. I drew down the other end to push into the foam as well, creating a large, curved loop.
Again, you do not have to have perfect placement, although the effect is very pretty if you keep the loops smoothly rounded and similar in size and shape.
I inserted a second stem of steel grass, overlapping the insertion of the first loop.
I continue moving around the perimeter of the bouquet, creating a beautiful, open look with a collar of steel grass.
You can see the more grasses inserted, the more complex the design becomes.
This bride wanted a slight cascade to her bouquet, so I lengthened the loops at the bottom, creating more of an oval shape.
