I believe that crazy ideas are the very best kind, don’t you? And when ideas are crazy easy, well that’s even better. Which is why I decided to make my own moss wreath. I know, I know, they’re fairly easy to come by. But I love a good craft project, especially when you’re hanging with a friend and laughing all the way. So my friend Dawn and I sat down one night and had a little moss wreath making party of two.
It took two friends two supplies to make a moss wreath, both of which we found at the dollar store: a wreath form and sheet moss.
After a lot of trial and error, we finally figured out that cutting small strips of moss and wrapping them around similar to how you’d wrap ribbon around was the best option. So with a little hot glue (and a lot of care not to burn our fingers too many times), we cut and glued over and over again.
The time flew by and we had each made a moss wreath before we even realized it. Even if we did get moss every where. I used some velvet ribbon to hang them off our chairs for our winter house tour – and I love how simply beautiful the whole thing turned out.
They fit right in with the Winter in the Woods theme perfectly. Because trees and moss go together like peas and carrots. Or Forrest and Jenny. Or Dawn and I. It’s like a match made in heaven.
So the next time you have a friend in need of craft therapy, a moss wreath might be the answer.
