Make a Cattail Vase for Fall Decorating

A combination of wheat, cattails, and raffia makes this vase perfect for fall decorating -- September through Thanksgiving.

What You'll Need:

  • Cattails with reeds
  • Scissors
  • Empty container, such as large powdered lemonade or oatmeal container
  • Ruler
  • Strong glue or adhesive, such as E6000
  • Paper plate
  • Plastic knife
  • Empty container, such as large powdered lemonade or oatmeal container
  • Raffia
  • Wheat
  • Varnish
  • Paintbrush
  • Extra containers for drying cattails
  • Rice or dried beans

How to Make It:

  1. Gather similar-size cattails. Remove and separate reeds, then trim cattails to a similar length. Measure height of container and trim all reeds to fit.
  2. Place a generous amount of glue on a paper plate. Use the plastic knife to spread glue around the outside of the container, a small vertical section at a time. Press reeds onto the container; let dry.
  3. Wind a few strands of raffia around the top edge of the container and attach with glue.
  4. Using the photo as a guide, trim wheat to extend beyond the container rim. Glue wheat, evenly spaced, around the reed-covered container. Wrap and glue several strands of raffia around the bottom edge of the container.
  5. To preserve cattail heads: In a well-ventilated area, generously coat the cattail heads with varnish using the paintbrush. Place cattails upright in extra containers, keeping stems separated; let dry.
  6. Fill the decorated container halfway with rice or dried beans to support cattails. Arrange cattails in container.
