pampas hanging cloud

Create a cloud of dried Pampas to accent a large space with a natural look and is a trendy décor addition perfect for any special event.
Step 1

Tie a long strand of floral wire to a grapevine ball and suspend from your hanging device.
TIP: Build this arrangement at the location it will be displayed as it is very fragile and delicate.

Step 2

Cut the stem off the Pampas grass as close to the feathered area as possible without separating the grass.
TIP: Use a stiff hairspray to coat the Pampas grass to reduce the dropping of fluff and seeds.

Step 3

Push the stem into the grapevine ball. Continue to add Pampas grass to the grapevine ball at various angles around the ball to build the arrangement. Allow the stems to overlap inside the ball while balancing the hanging arrangement as you build.
TIP: If needed, apply some hot glue to the end of the Pampas grass when inserting it into the grapevine ball for extra durability.

Step 4

Once you have a nice shape and the arrangement is balanced, spray the arrangement with more hairspray. Next add other dried elements, such as Lotus Pods, Wheat, Willow and Bunny Tail to create a focal point. These items will need some hot glue applied close to the middle of the cloud to keep them in place.

Step 5

Take a photo to look at the arrangement as a whole and make adjustments if needed.
