A Mossy Wreath

Mossy Wreath close up

Simple, inexpensive, and lovely. A grapevine wreath, bag of moss, needle and thread, embellishments, and ribbon. That’s it.

1. Arrange your moss on the grapevine wreath. The moss sticks together a bit; use scissors to trim and separate.

2. Anchor a length of green thread (to match the moss) on a branch of the wreath, then use a needle to weave the thread through the moss. Wrap it around the back of the wreath, then repeat the process all the way around the wreath. Leave no more than 4-inch spaces between the thread.

3. Add embellishments, weaving the ends through the moss and securing to the branches of the wreath.

4. Lay a ribbon under the wreath, wrap it around the wreath and tie a bow at the front, just below the embellishments. I wrapped the ribbon twice before tying the bow.

5. Hang up the wreath!
