Martha Stewart has easy instructions for homemade paper Easter grass

I am a day late and a dollar short with this post, but I meant to write about this last year, waited, and never did. So I'll just put it out there for anyone who cares to remember: Never buy plastic Easter "grass" again! My husband told me that when he lived in Albuquerque, he saw a young bird walking around with plastic Easter grass tangled around its leg, which was deformed. Best guess is that the birds had built their nest using some plastic Easter grass they had found, and the deformation was a result. SO...if you like Easter grass, please buy the paper version. Or, better yet, make your own, which is what we did this year. (Or, better still, grow your own...!)

Eco-Grass makes a "plastic" grass from cornstarch that is fully compostable

Growing your own grass for Easter could not be easier! Now, to just plan in advance...
