Today is the first day of a week of Wreaths for you to make.
You will find some inspiration and a few simple
instructions to add a touch of Spring to your front door,
armoire, hutch, mantle or wherever you please.
Years ago I took a few classes on floral design and from those classes I
discovered that I enjoyed creating wreaths.
So, for the next five days I will be sharing some of my favorite
Spring wreaths for 2014 with you.
It seems to me a perfectly magical way to infuse color, charm, warmth
and a bit of hospitality to your home.
I have always loved moss wreaths, and year after year I was always going to
make one and well, never did.
So this is the year of the moss wreath for me.
If you'd like to make one for yourself here are some easy steps!
To make this wreath you will need the following:
Warning-it is going to get messy-then it is going to become beautiful!
1. Sheet Moss (I purchased mine from Home Depot-It was called sheet moss,
but I have been wondering if it truly was.)
2. Straw Wreath
3. Glue gun
4. Satin Ribbon
5. 1/2 inch pastel Styrofoam balls
7. Bag to cover working surface
Cover your working surface with something you can throw away-I used an
old bag, because moss is very, very messy.
Unroll the moss and position it on the straw wreath, I cut mine to fit and then
began to glue as I went.
As I was working with the moss, I began to wonder just a bit if this was
going to work out as I had planned.
So, naturally I was super pleased to see it all begin to take shape.
Hot glue the Styrofoam balls on, add a satin ribbon and presto Spring is now
infused into your home.
Do you like blue and yarn?
