Pampas Grass Wreath: This inexpensive DIY wreath is made from foraged grasses. Perfect for fall, easy to make and full of texture.
I’ve fallen in love with pampas grass. As a child of the 70’s, I remember it from then. It’s back and I love the boho vibe it adds to any space, so I thought it would be fun to create a pampas grass wreath.
I also love that it grows wild all around here. We went out and found some in feathery white, and some darker, and I mixed it in with a few other wild grasses I found growing wild. I love to decorate for the season, by bringing the outside in. For fall I love to decorate with pumpkins, and leaves, and these grasses are perfect for the season too.
This wreath was really easy to put together. And the price is certainly right. I upcycled an old straw wreath form that I had used before. The grasses are free, you just need to go and collect some. The creamy white pampas grass is just starting to get feathery here, and not quite there yet. In another week or so it will be so soft and fluffy. This was perhaps a little easier to work with. I’m hoping that as it dries, it might become more feathery and fluffy.

How To Make A Pampas Grass Wreath
To make the grass wreath, start by collecting your grasses. I found mine growing near where I live along the side of the road. Collect more than you think you’ll need, because you don’t want to run out and have to go collect more.
To prep your grasses, cut them all to around 30 cm long, removing the green leaves, and just leaving the ends. Mix your different types together.
To make your wreath more even and help ensure you don’t run out of grass before you’re done, divide your pile into 4, and try to use one pile of grass on each quarter of the wreath.
Tie the twine tightly on the wreath, leaving the spool attached. To attach your grasses, start with a small bundle, lay them out on your wreath facing one direction. Wrap the twine tightly around it. Add another bundle of grass facing the same direction, overlapping the previous one and the twine, and wrap it tightly with twine. Continue all the way around the wreath. Tie off the twine at the end.
Because some of the feathery grasses might shed, you can spray it with a little hair spray to help prevent it.
Something Different For Fall
I love how this wreath turned out. It’s feathery and fine, and beautiful. The mix of colours is really subtle and nice -I really like the creamy white pampas grass mixed with the darker ones. It has tons of texture. And, it’s perfect for fall, but a little different from what you might typically think of as fall.
With a DIY Pampas Grass Wreath, life really is a party!
