Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In celebration of this green holiday, I made a beautiful and easy ribbon grass centerpiece. A simple glass vase that came with a floral arrangement my Dad sent me for a past birthday acted as the base for this arrangement and we all know we have a ton of those boring freebie vases hanging around. Some rocks, a little ribbon, a glittered shamrock, and four beautiful stems of ribbon grass are all I needed to pull the rest of this arrangement together. This project is so easy, that my 5 year old girls were able to do most of it themselves (all except for tying the bow).This ribbon grass centerpiece is the perfect way to decorate a table for St. Patrick’s Day.
- 2 branches or ribbon grass in light green
- 2 branches of ribbon grass in dark green
- 1 container of rocks
- Glass Vase
- 1 Spool of Green Striped Ribbon
- Shamrock Embellishment
Fill your vase most of the way with rocks. Stop a couple inches from the top of the vase.
Place all four branches of ribbon grass into the rock-filled vase. I alternated light green and dark green but you could use any colors you want.
Tie the ribbon around the neck of the vase, making a pretty bow.
Hot glue your glittered shamrock embellishment to the center of the bow and let dry.
That is all there is to it. In less than 5 minutes you have a stunning St. Patrick’s Day ribbon grass centerpiece that is perfect for any dining room table.
