Cattail and raffia outdoor decoration for fall and thanksgiving many hoops   


Use a tall glass vase and place decorative stone, seashells or sand in the bottom to weight it so a strong gust of wind doesn't knock it over. Then place cattails in the vase and tie them with raffia. Drape the raffia over the top of the vase and tie with a bow at the top. You can also add a flat basket or clay flower pot protector under the vase as another decorative element.
