I think that wreaths are flexible home decors because you can suit it to a theme or season by simply using certain materials and changing the treatment. This craft moss wreath diy suits fall and spring but if you hang it in summer, it still looks good. And this is an awesome gift idea.too. I’m actually making this as a gift.

Wreaths are lovely home decors, wanna make one?

 

Grab the following materials :

Faux or craft moss
Glue gun
Floral wreath foam
Felt ( two colors)
Scissors
Acrylic paint
Paintbrush
Twigs ( from your front and backyard )
Thread or craft wire

 

At anytime you use craft moss, expect it to be a really messy project. So if you are insanely a neat freak, take a deep breath.

Begin by filling up your floral wreath foam with craft moss by using hot glue. Be careful when using hot glue especially when you have to press the moss onto the base. You can choose to use a low temp glue gun if you’re not used to handling hot glue but since I have been using it this since its invention ( just a guess ) I used a high temp glue gun.

Oh yeah, I still had a few “ouchies” and that means every now and then a small portion of glue touched my skin. That is ok, as a glue gun ninja, I have trained myself to retract my finger so quick and remove the glue from my finger in a blink of an eye. Really!

I would often use a tray when I work with  craft moss. That way most of it gets contained in one area and it is much easier to clean up.

Now, it’s time to work on the felt. Trace or draw leaves on the felt and cut them out.

It is up to you how many leaves you would want to put on your wreath. Once you’ve cut them all out, bring out any color of acrylic paint that will complement the color of your leaves. Then paint some lines that resemble the veins of leaves.

Use another color of felt for our felt flower. Cut the felt lengthwise about 1 1/2″ or 2″ wide.

Hold the tip and begin to roll inwards to achieve the look of a flower. In the beginning, you may have to keep adjusting but you’ll get the hang of it.

When you reach the end of the felt, clip the edge while you get a piece of thread or craft wire to tie up the ends.

Then we get back to the craft moss covered wreath. I just got my twigs from the front yard and you could do the same but make sure you choose shorter and slimmer but sturdy ones. Check first if they’re brittle, if they are toss them back.

This part is important, you have to map out where you want your twigs first. And you may want to cut short some of them.

Bundle up the twigs and tie them up with brown thread to secure them together.

At this point you should also map out the placement of your felt flowers and leaves.

When you have decided on the placements, use hot glue to permanently place the leaves, flowers and twigs on the craft moss floral wreath.

Glue the leaves on top of the twigs where the glue is visibly thick. Then glue the flowers.
