There’s a wreath on our door year round. It’s a simple way to add a seasonal flair with little effort. Instead of spending $60 or more on a pre-made wreath, you can create one that’s just as pretty for half as much.  For this spring, we decided that we wanted a monochromatic wreath with plenty of texture to serve as a base that can be added to throughout the spring.

Cut the moss ribbon or sheet wide/long enough to cover the front part of the wreath. There’s no need to cover the back since it will be up against your door.  Pin it down with floral pins. Continue around until the wreath form is covered.

Use the smaller pieces of moss to fill in the gaps or spaces in the moss. Use the hot glue gun to secure the moss. Be generous when applying the loose moss. The goal is to make it look full will very little of the underlying sheet/ribbon moss showing through.

Now, add some of the greenery to the moss base. Use the floral pins to secure the greenery onto the wreath form. Slightly overlap them to ensure even coverage.

The wreath is pretty to use on its own, but you can change the look of the wreath by adding  different seasonal/holiday elements.

This Easter, a wired sprig of artificial mini eggs added to the wreath gives it a fresh new look.

Add a sprig of flowers for a pop of color to hang all spring. No matter what you add to your wreath to decorate for spring, the lovely textured base is the perfect palette.
