Easy Potted Beach Grass Centerpieces

20 Jun

I’ve been asked to help put together decorations for a Caribbean themed dinner party for a youth group. This will be such a fun project! I will post each part of the project separately as it unfolds. At the bottom of this post, you will see the updated links to each part of the centerpiece. The first phase of the dinner party centerpieces is Potted Beach Grass. There will be five parts to this series of posts.

Supplies You’ll Need:
Small pots (mine are from JoAnns, set of 3 for $2.99)
Grass bunches (JoAnns, $1.99 each)
Foam balls cut in half (pack of 6 $4.99 JoAnns)
Skewers (had at home)
Moss (1 bag $4.99 JoAnns)

Potted Beach Grass Centerpieces

1. Cut foam balls in half. Place in pot
