2. Using a hot glue gun, glue hay to one side of the form until form is covered. Reverse the form and repeat. To prevent this project from being so messy, it is advisable to work over a box. The hay that falls from the project can be collected and used again.

3. Once covered, use gold wire or green florist wire and wrap the form all over criss crossing and securing any loose hay. You can also keep adding hay to add more thickness and height to the form. Once completed, cut away any excess hay hanging over the edges or standing out.
