April Wreath

April Wreath

Step 1:

Clip a bunch of three-inch lengths of florist wire using a pair of wire snips and fold them over your pinkie finger in order to create custom floral pins.  You will need a bunch of these to complete the project. If you want to eliminate this step you can always purchase pre-made floral pins.

Step 2:

Spray a section of the wreath form with your spray adhesive, place spanish moss on top of the section that you sprayed, and secure it into place using some of your floral pins. Keep working with the spanish moss until you have the entire surface of the form covered with Spanish Moss.

Step 3:

Once your spanish moss is covering your form, it is time to go back over the form with a second type of moss. Work your way around the wreath, adding sections of brighter green moss with your floral pins. Don’t cover the entire surface, just create patches of the second type of moss.

Step 4:

Once you are satisfied with your coverage of both mosses it is time to add a third color and texture. Open your package of lichen and adhere them to your form spurratically using your tacky glue or glue gun.

Step 5:

Finish off your wreath with a great big simple bow. I chose a burlap ribbon in two tones for a beautiful yet rustic look. Once your ribbon has been added, hang your moss covered wreath on your wall or door and enjoy!
