Spring Moss Wreath

I'm LOVIN' this wreath. :)


I can't take much credit for it though--Courtney over at A Diamond in the Stuff made this fabulous moss wreath that I instantly fell in love with--I loved everything about it, so I made one for myself!







It was a fun and easy project and one that I've been very satisfied with. She had a great tutorial on her blog as well, but here are the basic steps.


Supplies:
Wreath
Moss
(I used about 4 oz. of natural sheet moss to cover it and then some light green moss to lighten it up.
Embellishments: Butterflies, Dragonflies, Nests, Eggs, etc.
Hot Glue Gun
Assorted earth-toned toll paints and paint brushes

Glue the moss on the wreath.


Get out your paints, and start painting everything. Can you tell my 3-year-old helped me here? She had tons of funs.




When everything is painted how you'd like, start arranging them on the wreath and use the hot glue gun to glue them down and you are finished! :)


Hope you enjoy your spring wreath as much as I do!

  6. You can buy moss at pretty much any home craft store. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby.
