DIY Easter Grass

Confession: I am not a fan of old school plastic Easter grass (thanks Mom!). So instead of searching for the perfect basket filler, we made our own.  First, we painted a few sheets of white computer paper (both sides) with springy green craft paint. I used a dry brush method to exaggerate the streaks to give it a grass-like look.

Then, we ripped the paper into long strips to create our grass. I love the torn paper look.

If this stuff ends up scattered all over our house on Easter morning I don’t think I will mind so much. :)
