Woodland and nature themed decor never gets old to me. When I think of “spring” I think of bright colors, fairy gardens, and lots of whimsy. I tried to capture that spirit in this fun door wreath that I created. I used crafting moss with various foam shapes to create a whimsical moss DIY wreath. This will be such a fun way to welcome guests to my home this spring!
- Styrofoam Wreath Form – 18 inches
- Durafoam Cone – 9.85 inches and 5.9 inches
- Durofoam Ball – 6 inches and 4 inches
- SuperMoss Preserved Green Moss Sheets
- Darice Chalkboard Triangle Banner Set
- Darice Hot Glue Gun
- Multisurface Craft Paint: Red, White, Muted Gold
- Mod Podge
- Darice Glitter
Step 1. Use a serrated knife to cut the Durafoam items as follows. Cut two inches off the point of the larger cone, and one inch off the smaller come. The large cone needs cut in half. Cut the large ball in half, then in half again. Cut the smaller ball in half.
Step 2. Use craft paint to add color to the foam surfaces. Paint the mushroom tops red, then use a foam pouncer to add white dots to the tops. Paint the cones with antique gold or a similar dark yellow color.
Step 3. Paint the mushroom pieces with Mod Podge, and immediately sprinkle glitter over the wet adhesive.
Step 4. Use a hot glue gun to attach the moss pieces to the front and sides of the foam wreath form. Glue the largest pieces to the front of the wreath form, then trim off the excess. Glue the scrap pieces to the sides of the moss DIY wreath.
Step 5. Hot glue the large cone half to the lower right side of the mossy wreath. Hot glue the quarter ball mushroom top over the stem. Hot glue the smaller cone in the center of the wreath, and glue the half ball mushroom top onto it.
To finish off my moss DIY spring wreath, I strung three chalkboard pennants on twine and spelled the word “joy” with a chalk marker. I hot glued the pennant banner onto the upper left side of the wreath. I can’t wait to hang my cheery, happy wreath on my front door!
