How to make a decorative moss wreath for your home.
You will need:
- a styrofoam ring
- some moss (both fresh and fake will work)
- a glue gun
- other decorations (optional)
Step 1: Preparing the Moss
Skip this step if you are using fake moss.
When using real moss, let it dry for a few hours before proceeding. Then try to get as much of the dirt fom the bottom of the moss using your hands and a brush.
Step 2: Start Glueing
Next, get your glue gun and start glueing the moss to the styrofoam base. Only cover a small patch at a time. Repeat until the styrofoam is no longer visible under the moss.
Step 3: Add Decorations (optional)
The moss wreath looks good even without any additional decorations, however, you can make it more festive by adding ribbon and seasonal decorations.
Add the ribbon by pinning it in the right position. Additional decorations can also be pinned to the wreath itself or glued onto the ribbon.
If you want to hang your wreath, you should add ribbon to the top of the wreath. Simply wrap the ribbon around the wreath once and pin it into place. Then tie the two ribbon ends together.
Step 4: Finished!
