This simple centerpiece shows off the many textures and colors of grass. Vintage glass tubes in a brick hold an assortment of ornamental grass leaves and seed heads.
Braided blades of grass make naturally pretty napkin rings. For each ring, cut six 1-foot-long blades of grass. Fill a 2.5-quart container with water and add a tablespoon of vinegar. Soak the grass in the solution for 24 hours to disinfect the grass and make it easier to work with. Braid the grass in three groups of two blades, leaving room on the end to tie a knot. Dry thoroughly and wrap around napkins. Add a sprig of fresh grass.

Refresh an old wooden crate or window box with new paint and a simple grass stencil. Bunches of cut grass make stunning arrangements.
Turn a mini pumpkin into a vase by carving a circle in the top and scooping out the insides. Fill with floral foam that's been soaked in water, and arrange a mix of grasses. To prevent shedding, give the arrangement a light dusting of inexpensive aerosol hairspray.
