Bring the beauty of nature into your holiday decorating by creating this beautiful arrangement made from painted cattails and fresh greens. Choose a container that complements your color scheme and display the arrangement as a centerpiece or as an entry bouquet.What You Need:
- Decoupage medium
- Small paintbrush
- Glitter in desired color
- Large vase or pail
- Christmas ornament
1. To make the cattails glitter, paint a coat of decoupage medium on the cattail head.
2. Sprinkle glitter on the head and let it dry. The decoupage medium will also act as a sealant and prevent the heads from popping.
3. Arrange the cattails with greens in a large vase or pail.
4. Tie a ribbon and an ornament around the container. You can add water to the container to keep the greens fresher, but the cattails require no water.
