Make Your Own Moss-Covered Wreath
A wreath is a classic home decor piece, but buying seasonal wreaths can be pricey. Making your own is a great alternative, and we adore this spring wreath DIY created by Colonial House of Flowers. This project takes a modern and chic approach, updating the traditional spring wreath with living moss. Not only is this craft gorgeous and contemporary, it’s also easy as can be! Your wreath will last for months–just revive it with a spritz of water with a drop of green food coloring. Once you see how simple this DIY is, you won’t be able to wait to try it for yourself!
- straw wreath form
- sheet moss
- mood moss
- greening pins
- other embellishments of your choice
Dip a section of moss in the water and squeeze it out like a sponge.
Arrange the moss around the wreath form and pin it into place.
Repeat steps one and two until the wreath is covered. Mix the moss textures to create a varied surface.
Add any other embellishments you wish, such as ribbons, nests, figurines, etc. For special occasions, you can spruce your wreath up with fresh-cut flowers. Enjoy your beautiful new wreath!
