Another Use for Pampas Grass----fall Decorations

by Teri
I started to decorate my porch for fall. As I'm pulling out a few things I'm also cleaning flower beds. Some of my pampas grass was bending over, so as I was cutting it down, I thought "hey, this can be my corn-stalk!"
I got my orange and yellow spray paint and sprayed the feather like tops.
I attached the pampas grass to my porch post with a bungee cord. This will work just fine for my fall decor. As they start to fall over, I will gather more and do the same thing to the other post.
Check out the rest of my porch highlights! My girl scarecrow was boring until I added a cute face, hair essentials, and spruced up her dress. I also made her chicken friend.
This is only the beginning of my fall decorations! I am changing out my summer display to my fall.

    What is the chicken made from and is it hard to make? Kris

    How long will the grass hold up before it falls apart or dies? I'm thinking of doing this for a wreath.

    Did you make the concrete leaf yourself from an elephant ear plant? I made one last year but it didn't turn out near as good as that one.

    Yvonne, what a pretty idea that is. If I ever get one growing I am going to remember this idea. You have a typo up there (Probably another auto correct Fix!) it should be Blueing instead of Glueing! I know you said blueing before this, I seem to have these kind of "Fixes" only to often!!!

    Love it! So cool and interesting out there, not the usual boring stuff in front of a home! Very cheerful! :)
