I love bringing the outdoors in! My personal home decor style is all about things that are light and bright with lots of outdoorsy touches for a clean and fresh feel. This moss wreath is the perfect addition to your front door or over your mantle. The green is perfect for this time of the year too. It transitions perfectly from St. Patrick’s Day, to Easter, to plain and simple Spring decor.
And while you might be thinking that this wreath would be difficult to make – it’s so easy! Thanks to moss mats. They are awesome sauce!
Foam Wreath Form
Hot Glue Gun
Place the foam wreath on the mat and cut around leaving enough extra around to lift it up and cover the sides.
Lift up one edge of the mat and hot glue to the side of the wreath form. Cut a slit in the side piece so that you don’t have any wrinkling or lumping. Lift, glue, and cut all the way around.
You’ll most likely have edges sticking up past the wreath form unless you are super awesome and measuring and cutting perfect measurements. Otherwise, you’re probably like me and will need to trim those outside edges to be flat with the wreath.
Now for the inside edges.
Use your craft knife to cut the center of the moss. I made four cuts to create 8 triangles of moss.
Lift each triangle and hot glue to the inside of the wreath form.
This is the cool part because I know you are wondering how in the world you are going to fill in the gaps between those triangles. Trim the top of the triangle and use the tip that you just cut off. Turn it upside down and it fits in the gap! Glue in place and no one can even tell that it’s not a solid piece of moss. Cool, right?
