You will need

  • Long stalks of dried palm grass
  • Plaster blocks or foam blocks 
  • Glue
  • Power drill (if you are using plaster blocks)
  • Hand drill or round chisel (if you are using foam blocks)
  • Optional: concrete effect paint

Getting started
Step 1

Glue the plaster blocks together until you have made your desired shape. To make it playful, choose blocks of different heights. You can also use foam blocks instead of plaster blocks and paint them with a concrete effect paint. 

Step 2

Drill holes in the plaster blocks, or make holes in the foam blocks, and insert the palm grass.

Variation tip: Would you like something different, or don't have plaster or foam? You can also make a natural art object from tied together palm grass, as shown in the photo below.
