Create Sections

To ensure the entire wreath is covered by moss, work on one section at a time, securing each piece of moss with hot glue. Tip: To ensure all sections blend together seamlessly with no foam showing, push each cluster of moss tightly up against the next.

Add Ornamentation

Add color to your wreath with ornamentation. Faux cranberries work well since they adhere easily with hot glue, and they add a nice glossy finish which contrasts well against the dullness of the moss.
