Ripped Grass Frame
Create a sheltered or veiled design by framing the outer edge of your armature (in this case thick cardboard) with long strands of grass
Cut a thick cardboard rectangle and start to glue strips of ripped typha, flax or grass to the outer edge of the rectangle. See the Tutorial below on how to rip foliage
Gather clumps of grass and glue it to the cardboard.
Add more grass...
Rest the glued grass on a flat surface so that all the grass stands straight upright.
Continue all the way around.
Glue the strips to stick to the side of the cardboard. This way the grass sections have about 1cm of surface to stick to.
Almost done. Just add a few more strips of ripped grass
Cut 4 sections of clear pipe (you can also use dowels) for invisible feet
Grass armature for a sheltered or veiled design
An easy going design of ripped grass and calla lilies. But look a bit closer. See if you can find Mr. Stalk relaxing somewhere between the blades of grass.
A fun design... with a hula skirt (...for the cool summer breeze to arrange and rearrange)
A simple placement of bud vases... with the tiniest of lemon coloured twist that makes them unusual.
