How to Make a Christmas Moss Wreath

Courtesy of Brian Patrick Flynn, Decor Demon

Merry Christmas Friends,

Add graphic punch and organic style to your front doors with a square moss wreath. To create one, you'll need a square wreath form, bagged moss, ribbon and approximately an hour and a half of crafting time. In addition to the texture and color, the square shape of the wreath offers a fresh new take on an old holiday classic.

Materials Needed:
  • square foam wreath form
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue
  • extension cord
  • moss
  • faux cranberries
  • ribbon

Piece Moss Onto Wreath Form
Place small pieces of moss directly onto the wreath form, then secure with hot glue.

Create Sections
To ensure the entire wreath is covered by moss, work on one section at a time, securing each piece of moss with hot glue. Tip: To ensure all sections blend together seamlessly with no foam showing, push each cluster of moss tightly up against the next.

Wrap Corners
Cover each corner by wrapping the tip, top and both sides.

Add Ornamentation
Add color to your wreath with ornamentation. Faux cranberries work well since they adhere easily with hot glue, and they add a nice glossy finish which contrasts well against the dullness of the moss.

Add Ribbon
Make your moss wreath easy to hang by attaching ribbon around the top.

Bring this unexpected shape and organic texture to your outdoor entryway during the holidays; it adds a fun and festive flair to the front of your home...
