There’s nothing like a pretty wreath to dress up your front door. Seasonal changes and holidays present new opportunities to hang a wreath. If the price of “custom” wreaths have prevented you from hanging one up, fear not. You can make one for a ⅓ of the cost of those fancy custom wreaths you see in craft stores.

This part is messy, so make sure you line your work surface with newspaper or craft paper. The moss will probably be compacted in the package. When you take it out of the package, fluff it up and pull out small sections of the moss. Tuck the moss under the some of the grapevine branches. There’s no need to glue any of the moss down at this point. Make your way around the wreath form until the moss is evenly distributed. Leave some of the grapevine visible.  

Add More Moss

Once you have the base layer of moss tucked in the grapevine nicely, it’s time to add more texture. Glue the smaller pieces of moss on top of the base layer. Fill and tuck it into little crevices. This will give the wreath more depth and interest.

Add Accessories

This is where the fun begins. Add acorns, leaves and mini squash all around the wreath. You can place the pieces randomly or evenly, you can’t really go wrong. Swap out the acorns for mini pinecones and the squash for dried flowers. There are so many ways to customize this wreath to match your decor and style.
