Default Easter grass

I'm making an Easter cadge and was wondering if Easter grass was safe?

No, I wouldn't use it as the dye in Easter grass may be harmful for your hamster.

It can be fine to use as long as there is no harmful dyes, but most tends to be just colored paper which in general is harmless. As a sole source of bedding, I wouldn't recommend it, but as a bit of extra decoration I'd say it's okay

Taped on the outside of a cage would be fine if out of reach I wouldn't use it inside though,as even supposedly nontoxic dyes can be dangerous for hamsters if they're still nontoxic to humans.

Why don't you just shred paper yourself and then use a DIY hamster safe dye (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8q5B_grqI0), so you can control what goes into it?
