S+S DIY: moss wreaths

We are SO over this dreary weather. SO ready for sunshine, bright colors, green trees and blossoming flowers. We've had a few glimpses lately but know winter isn't through with us yet. Maybe if we start decorating for the season it will come and stay sooner, you think it'll work?! That's my plan and I'm sticking to it.
I decided to make a moss wreath for my front door, I figured it can carry me through Easter, if not a little longer. I love seasonal decor that I can enjoy for as long as possible! To get started on this project you need the following:
wreath form, large sheet of moss, hot glue gun
I have seen some fun diy's on felt flowers and decided try my hand at a few in Valentine colors, hence the felt {I am going to add some more flowers in 'spring' colors once February is over}

Putting the wreath together is way simple! Just cut strips of moss and hot glue around the wreath form. I will tell you though, be prepared for a mess, I had moss everywhere!


For the flowers simply trace circles onto the felt and cut out. {I did four of each color/size}

Fold into fourths and quick stitch {or pin} the felt together to hold it's shape.

Attach together onto another circle {I hot glued} and you've got a flower. Make as many flowers as your heart desires! I only made 3 for now to save some space for other colors later.

Bunch together on the wreath and you're done!

If you aren't feeling the felt flowers you can find some fake florals to embellish with. We recommend Michaels or Pier 1 for some gorgeous stems.


I made a smaller version of the moss wreath for my dining room and attached the green and pink buds. Loving the color and life it brings to that room!

Spring, come soon.
