Foam, Foliage, and Paint Cans




This past weekend I was hired as a crafts person to create an evocative patch of wheat grass for a production of Dancing at Lughnasa. The morning began by rescuing some paint cans from the dumpster to use as the base. We weighted the cans with wood blocks and scavenged some packing foam that also was on its way to the dumpster. A few [hundred] poked holes later, and the cans were filled with dried grass. To finish the look, faux green onion grass was draped over the side. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday, not a bad way to recycle some dumpster finds.
