Making the lily grass harness

Harness lily grass loops

Roll firm sections of lily grass into loops. Secure with Oasis Floral Adhesive.

Lily grass harness pieces

Connect each of the loops with three straight blades of lily grass. Do not glue the straight section to the loop but rather around the loop for movement.

Lily Grass Harness

Each loop should get three straight sections. Connect the loops. Weave the harness loops into the lily grass shape.
