A Week Of Spring Wreaths-DIY

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

6.  Scissors

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? 

If so, please join me tomorrow for a super

cute and fun little wreath!

  4. Jemma,
    I love your spring wreath! It's simple with pretty colors, and so lovely. I wish you lived closer to me - I have been wanting a wreath for my front door. I used to have one up many years ago, but since then, have not found one that suits me. I didn't know you took classes on floral design. That might be why your wreaths are always full of beauty and charm.

    love,
    ~Sheri

  10. That's really adorable! I like the moss- it's a great backdrop. I have a very narrow area to put a wreath and I think this would fit. I need to think about this a bit more!! Love it... thanks for sharing!

  11. I agree, the moss is just wonderful. I added some to a nest I made and put on my grapevine wreath (with some unexpected results, oh my)!

  12. Didn't want to leave you too many comments, Jemma, but I browsed through all your wreaths and love each and every one. I especially like how you used them throughout your home, and this one hanging from your armoire is perfect.
    Have a lovely Sunday.

  14. Thank you for showing us how to make this. I'm wondering how it might be adapted for other times of the years and am looking forward to seeing what else you might create with it (hint, hint!).
