You need to prep the grass by picking off the grains on the ends and cutting the pieces about the same length.
Here it is, step by step:
|Gather the grasses and make sure the tips are on the same side.|
|I separated mine into three sizes to help with shaping.|
|Stack the three piles on top of one another and make the bottom even.|
|I recommend using a rubber band to keep the pieces in place for wrapping a handle.|
|Wrap the grass tightly with string or small rope. I used leftover hemp I had on hand.|
|Trim the ends so the brush looks pleasing to you!|
|I made two! The extra string length enables me to hang them to dry.|
There! Now you too can make a hakeme brush for your pots! Huzzah!
