Gettin' Crafty - Fresh Moss Wreath

Does anyone else have spring fever?? I do. Especially after all that miserable rain! Here's a simple way to dress up your front door for spring without breaking the bank. This project took me about 1 hour to assemble after I got all the items together and cost less than $20. And if you have some old wreaths lying around and some pretty ribbon you won't even need to purchase those. All you will need for this project is:

Satin Ribbon
An 18" Wreath form (mine is a grapevine wreath from Michaels)
Green Sheet Moss
Hot Glue gun
Optional: Flowers for extra decor

Simply take your sheet moss and cut it into strips. Then wrap each strip around the wreath form on an angle. Keep wrapping until most of the wreath is covered. (Its ok if you have some holes, you can cover those later) Cover any holes by cutting small pieces of the moss to fit and use the loose moss to fill gaps and make everything look even. Don't stress if it doesn't look perfect, after all it is an organic style wreath so it can look a little messy.

Once the wreath is covered tie the ribbon in a long loose bow so that you can use that for hanging. If you don't have a door knocker to hang it on use a door hook that goes over the top of the door.

If you would like a little extra color add some flowers that match the color of the satin ribbon to really tie together the whole look. But if you don't want to use the flowers that works too and keeps the look simple and fresh for Spring!

Happy Spring Fever Everyone!
