Moss Wreath

Well, it’s official.

Spring has Sprung! And ‘No, Mother Nature, there are no take backs!’

When the seasons begin to change, the first area of my home that I want to ‘seasonalize’ is my front porch. Not only is it one of my favorite features of our home, but it’s the first area that greets visitors and that we see when we pull in the driveway.

I’ll be popping in on Friday to show full front porch, but today I’m tackling my wreath.

And I’m pretty tickled with the Moss Wreath I made. The lovely green of moss really sings of spring and all the new growth that is coming. I decided to channel the whole ‘moss thing’ for my front porch this year and I love the simplicity of it. The moss is vibrant enough to stand on it’s own, but is also neutral enough that it should play well with other colors as the seasons change.

And making this wreath was a REALLY easy project.

What You Need to Make Moss Wreath:

  • 3 Moss Rolls (I found mine at Michaels…and it’s on sale this week!)
  • 1 Wooden Frame(I found mine at Michaels, in the wood working section…it does not have a piece of glass…it is just the wood frame)
  • Faux Fern (found at Michaels.  It was in a little pot and I just pulled it out of the pot)
  • E6000 glue
  • Ribbon

How to Make a Moss Wreath:

  • I wanted my moss wreath to have ‘mitred’ corners, so I laid it out on the frame and cut the moss at an angle at each corner.

  • By lining the next piece up against the piece I just cut, I was able to have fairly accurate cuts. But this moss is a little flexible, so if your lines aren’t exactly perfect you can pull it a bit.

  • Plus, you can always go back in after it’s all glued down and fill in any gaps with some of your leftover moss.
  • Once the front was glued on, I turned it over and glued the edges of the moss to the back of the frame as well.
  • Twist ties helped hold everything in place while the glue dried.
  • I then just filled any of the gaps between the seams with the leftover moss and tucked the little fern into one of the corner with a dab of glue. 
  • I also glued some white ribbon onto the back to make it look more finished.

Once again, this was a very easy project. If you don’t want a square wreath (is that an oxymoron?), you could find a round frame or even a wooden initial!

One project done and just a few more touches to get my front porch spring ready!I'm all about moss this Spring and I love this moss wreath for my front porch. An easy home decor DIY.

    This is so simple and such a cool idea Lynn. I had no idea there was moss on a roll, but of course everything is possible at Michaels, hey?? 😉 I love the wreath and can’t wait to see the rest of your lovely porch all ready for spring!!

      Hi Friend, and thanks for swinging by. It’s another lovely spring day here. Just returned home from a walk with the dogs and so happy to be greeted by my Spring porch, all decked out for the season.

      And yes, it’s the rare time when I can’t find what I need at Michaels! It’s a good thing.

      Wishing you a lovely Sunday my friend.

      Hugs, Lynn

    Lynn what an original wreath. It looks great out on your porch. I love the whole back to the earth look it has. I wish they had a Michael’s here so I could get some moss.

    Genius idea to use a picture frame for your DIY Moss Wreath. Seriously, I would have never thought of that.
