Ladies. Let me introduce you to one of my best friends. She’s a beauty. Meet Pampas Grass. Y’all need to get acquainted while I show you this DIY Pampas Grass wreath tutorial. I just know you’ll be besties.
When I was a little girl there was a giant Pampas Grass Shrub next to our house. The big fluffy plumes always whispered to me and the big bold grass was so attractive to me. Even though those slender blades of grass where like tiny razors I was drawn to it. Little did I know how fast of friends we would become later in life.
Something about the the soft feathery plumes blowing in the breeze is mesmerizing to me and having Pampas Grass in my fall home decor is a treat I look forward to each year. Big, bold statement pieces. That’s what these ladies are.
And I love a bold girlfriend who isn’t afraid to be herself.
Watch the video in this post and get a quick tutorial on how you can create a Pampas Grass Plume wreath for yourself. Truthfully any grass shrub plume will do – they are all showing off their magnificent flowers this time of year. You can find these while out on a walk, in your yard, your neighbors yard or even business parking lots! Don’t be shy – go ask if you can clip a few pieces to take home. These shrubs are so prolific I don’t think anyone will mind or miss a few clippings.
This beloved Papas Grass wreath is front and center in our living room, sitting quietly by, taking it all in. She is a perfect little lady and welcome to return year after year. I know you’ll feel the same. 😉

Supplies for Pampas Grass Wreath
Learn how to make your own Pampas Grass Wreath, this DIY tutorial is easy to follow and perfect for gorgeous fall home decor. A Pampas Grass Wreath adds luxurious beauty to your living room or mantel for a boho chic look that only nature decor can provide!
- Grapevine Wreath
- Pampas Grass
- Floral Wire
- Hot Glue Gun
- Wire Cutters
- Cut your Pampas Grass to just the plumes and short stalk.
- Lay the first plume on the grapevine wreath at an angle.
- Wrap the floral wire around the base of the plume a few times - tightly. Weave in and out of the bottom feathers to secure the plume to the wreath.
- Lay the next plume on top of the base of the first, also at an angle. It will cover the wire on the last plume.
- Repeat all the way around your grapevine wreath, layering one Pampas Grass Plume over the base of the other until you complete the circle. Every so often hold the wreath up and stand back - fill in any gaps or holes to make the plumes even around the wreath.
- Next cut small pieces of the feather part of the plume and glue them on the inside portion of wreath where the plume and wreath meet to help cover the floral wire. This gives the wreath a finished look.
- Use the floral wire to create a hanger on the back of your wreath.
Pampas Grass will cut your hands and fingers. Use caution when harvesting Pampas plumes and working with them. Once the grass part is separated from the plumes it is much easier to work with. Using gloves is necessary to harvest and recommended while getting the plumes prepped.
