Hi everyone! I am over my leaning Christmas tree I wrote about here, and am plugging away on lots of fun projects. I posted here all about tips for decorating with moss. In particular, I love reindeer moss, as it is light and airy, and I adore the chartreuse color. I really wanted to make a wreath this year, but was a bit bored with boxwood and pine. In addition, my colors for holiday decorating this year are pink and bright green, so I opted for a reindeer moss wreath.
It could not be simpler to make. All you need is:
- A 12″ foam wreath mold. I found mine here.
- Two bags of reindeer moss. I found mine here.
- A glue gun and glue sticks.
Simply crank up the heat on your glue gun, and slowly add small bunches of the moss to the foam mold. Fill in any holes after. Try and avoid the cursing and yelling that occurred as I proceeded to burn myself AGAIN and AGAIN with the hot glue gun.
Here is how it turned out.
It is so full and lush, I want to constantly touch it. I have heard, however, that it can dry out, so I am trying to preserve it by misting it every few days. So far, so good.
Do you decorate with wreaths for the holidays? Do you do store-bought or DIY? Please share in the comments. I am always looking for creative wreath ideas!
