I love anything that is farmhouse decor! Joanna Gaines is my inspiration for most home decor projects. Even if you don’t have a “farmhouse” there are lots of tips and tricks you can incorporate into your home to give it that extra cozy farmhouse feel! Using fake plants, greenery, and MOSS is one of my favorite ways!
Today I wanted to share with y’all a super easy DIY moss wreath! You don’t need to be crafty… anyone can do this project and it is way cheaper than one you’d buy at a store. This wreath took less than 30 minutes, and I think I spent around $13 at most. Don’t forget to always use your 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby and check their sales. Floral & most wreath making items are usually half off every other week.
Here’s a list of items you need, I found everything at Hobby Lobby!
- Straw wreath (mine is 14″)
- 2 bags of fake moss
- wooden letter
- hot glue gun & glue sticks
- ribbon of choice
(You can leave your straw wreath wrapped in the plastic it comes in or take it off! I’ve done it both ways before and either way is fine!)
1.Work in small sections and add a generous amount of hot glue, pull apart your moss and press onto the glue (careful not to burn yourself).
2. Keep working in small sections until your entire wreath is covered in moss! Fill in any gaps or places that you can still see the straw when you’re close to being done.
3. Next paint your wooden letter and hot glue it straight onto the wreath! I used a cream colored paint and lightly brushed on a dark brown paint to make it look aged.
4. Add a ribbon to the top so you can hang it from your wreath hanger. All I had handy at the moment was some twine but I think I’ll switch it out for some burlap ribbon soon!
And there you have it, a happy little moss wreath you can leave up year round! You could also add a couple of fake flowers to give it an extra springy touch or some mini pumpkins for fall!
PS: Make sure your supplies are not sitting in the floor when you leave your house, otherwise your dog might think it’s a new toy *sigh* (Luckily this was BEFORE I made the wreath)!
Good thing Tucker is cute! HA!
