I love Spanish Moss. There’s something about how wild and nature-y it looks when used in decor. I’ve stuffed it into jars and bowls and draped it onto branches, but I had another idea lurking in my mind. I’d use it to make a wreath. A spring DIY moss wreath!
- Darice Spanish Moss
- Darice Straw Wreath Form
- Darice Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Darice 4″ Bird’s Nest
- Darice 1.5″ Wooden Eggs
- Darice Berry Sprays (as you desire)
- Darice Large Burlap Ribbon
I used the straw wreath form for two reasons: one, I had it waiting in my stash for a moment like this, and two, styrofoam can melt when you use hot glue. I trusted the straw to withstand my generous gluing habits.
The process is pretty self-explanatory. Put glue all over your wreath form and then slap some moss on it.
It will look a hot mess at first. You will doubt yourself. You might even think, “This was a bad idea!”
But it’s not. It’s just messy. Keep trucking along and pat down that moss. It will start to resemble something soon.
I like to hang my wreaths when I “adorn” them, as it gives a true representation of what the wreath will actually look like.
I grabbed some red floral sprigs and tucked them into the wreath. I think they rounded out the whole look, don’t you?
