And on another note, I finally got an item marked off my to-do list. I bought this wreath form over a year ago with plans to cover it in moss to hang on my blue shutters over the mantle. Finally sat down by the fire this morning and got it made. Ella helped of course. It's so easy and you cannot mess it up.
hot glue (if you do the optional burlap step)
reindeer moss (I used 3 bags)
Instructions: This first step is optional but not required...it keeps the white styrofoam from showing through any imperfections with moss placement. Cut burlap into 3" strips and wrap around form securing with hot glue. Then use floral pins to secure moss pieces all over the wreath form. This is a bit time consuming and you will have sore thumbs but it is super easy. My 4 yr old helped me place the moss on the wreath so it is fool proof :) You can go a step further and add seasonal embellishments to one of the lower "corners" for a more seasonal look. I left it as-is for the time being. Hang with ribbon and admire!
*Crafting by fireside lends to an even more enjoyable experience ;) (sorry for the instagram pics but its just so much faster, lol) Happy Crafting!!
