I love wreaths. I love moss. What could be better for Spring than a simple moss wreath? I am going to show how to make one. It’s so easy and so cute, fresh, and Springy!

What you need:
A foam form. (I paid about $6 for this one at Hobby Lobby. It was with the foam stuff, not the wreath forms.)
A hot glue gun
Moss (find it in the floral department at the craft store)

Simply glue sections of the moss to the form. I put the glue on the moss first and then carefully pressed it to the form. Be careful of your fingers, the glue can seep through the moss a little. I got a burn :(.

Here’s what it looks like half way done. This is a messy little project. Because you are using real moss, and it’s a little dirty, prepare your work area for easy clean up.

And here it is hanging on my front door. I love how simple it is. You could totally add stuff to dress it up. I’m thinking hydrangeas or ranunculus. The options are limitless! OR just leave it simple, fresh, and green! Oh, I’m loving all these ideas!

I just adore the fresh greenery. And the best part is… no watering. Since I am the queen of killing plants, this is a serious plus in my book!

Remember how I mentioned you could add stuff to dress it up? Well, I decided to dress mine up with a gilded monogram. Come on over and visit my blog for the Gold Monogram Tutorial.

    Outdoor moss decor is cute and fresh, I agree wholeheartedly. And I have already purchased moss mats with which to cover a giant monogram. But I’m wondering how well the preserved moss will hold up outside in the wind and the rain. My husband has a can of waterproofing spray (meant for work boots!) and suggests I use that, but I’m thinking that I might be better off with a spray-paint clear coat. What do you think?
