Easy To Make Moss Wreath

by Meegan on September 19, 2012

Good Morning!!  How are you doing today?  I am getting my blog set up, working on wedding ideas, and enjoying some time with the Hubby.

But in the meantime…

I have decided to share my Easy To Make Moss Wreath.  It is perfect for your Fall/Christmas decor or for anytime of year.

This is the reindeer moss wreath I made for the TV Room.  It is classy and fits just right in this room.

To show you how to make a moss wreath, I am using Spanish Moss, because I am making the wreath for a different project.  Which ever moss is best for your project-the process is still the same.

You need 3 items for this project:
Straw or wicker wreath
Tacky Glue
Reindeer or Spanish Moss
(everything was purchased at Dollar Tree)
I started with a wicker wreath, then added the tacky glue.  Normally you could add small amounts of glue at a time, but mine spilled (oooops!), so this was the way I needed to work-after scraping it off the counter :)  It was actually pretty easy this way, too.  I cut or tore off a good sized piece of moss then I would press it into the glue to make sure it adhered to the wreath.  This wreath took one large bag of Spanish moss, and I had a lot left over.
After you do one whole side of the wreath, flip it over and do the other side-Continually pressing the moss into the wreath.  You may see empty or less full spots so just fill them in using the glue and moss.  When it is full as you like it, you are done!!  You can see I left some of the wicker showing-that is just what I needed for this project. Let it dry completely before you hang it.  Your moss might fall off-no bueno!!
Here is a sneak peek at the wreath I made with the Spanish moss.
You could also add sea shells, starfish, netting, ribbon, ornaments, etc.. to the Spanish moss for a beach style wreath-it’s up to you and your own creativity!!  How fun is that???

And again-this is my Reindeer moss wreath.  I used about 4 full bags of Reindeer moss for this one.  I wanted it more full-like you would see in Pottery Barn.   You could add a bow, or pumpkins to this one, maybe even some leaves for Fall.

One technique for making a wreath, 2 different styles.  An Easy To Make Moss Wreath is easy for even the “not so crafty” person.  I hope you make one soon and tell me all about it!!  I am sure you have lots of ideas and creative juices flowing after seeing this!!

Thanks for stopping by and for being such faithful followers!  I am REALLY lucky and blessed to have you stop by everyday!!

Have a fantastic Friday!!
