Christmas Decorating Idea {Moss Wreath}

November 29, 2011

I promised I would share some of the holiday decorating ideas that I shared in my presentation a few weeks ago, so here is my first idea!

It’s a moss wreath that can be used for Christmas, but it could also be changed up and used for Spring/Summer as well.

I made it for less than $5 and here’s how I did it:

Supplies needed:

  :: Foam wreath form
  :: Bag of moss
  :: Hot glue gun
  :: Ribbon & embellishments

Basically, you just glue the moss onto the wreath form, covering the entire form (you don’t need to do the back).

Then, glue on embellishments like berries, pinecones, ribbon, whatever your heart desires.

And hang the wreath by a ribbon.

In the springtime, you could change the embellishments and add a bird nest with some little eggs.

And here’s a little tip:

I wanted to save money on wreath forms, so I bought some pipe covers from the hardware section of Walmart. They came in a pack of 4 and I think the pack cost $2.97.

I bent them into a circle shape and duct-taped the ends together. Then spraypainted them with green paint.

You can use these pipe covers as a substitute for foam wreath forms and use them for all kinds of wreaths. It saves you money, which I love!
