Materials Needed:

  • square foam wreath form
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue
  • extension cord
  • moss
  • faux cranberries
  • ribbon

Piece Moss Onto Wreath Form

Place small pieces of moss directly onto the wreath form, then secure with hot glue.


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.


Wrap Corners

Cover each corner by wrapping the tip, top and both sides.


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.


Add Ribbon

Make your moss wreath easy to hang by attaching ribbon around the top.
