Yup. The best filler ever. about 65% of my gardens are made up of different colors of yarrow LOL!
Just can't kill it and it's soooooooo perfect for drought.

most of mine are shades of red, then turn to tan as they dry. I used to save them to use in fall decorations, and one year when my classes had a 22 foot tree to decorate for Christmas, we gathered dried yarrow, grapevine, dried twigs, etc, sprayed everything gold, and decorated the entire tree with everything done in groups, sprayed gold, and tied in bundles with red ribbon.

Well, we spent so much money on lights to cover it, we couldn't afford real decorations. Goodness it was a wonderful tree! We had a huge commons area where the kids gathered between classes...they would sit around that huge tree just like they were waiting for Santa.

omg, I NEVER thought to use them on a tree. Im so stealing your idea for december. Ohh and we have loads of grape vines too!
Much better than cheap-o plastic decorations. Im not a big Christmas type person as far as decorating so never really invest in nice decorations, but this is inspirational lol.

Stretch the grapevines out and spray paint them then. They will naturally wind around your tree like those tinsile ropes, I usually use about 3 intertwined. Make sense? Leave dried leaves on, too, and the little curly thingies.
