Glue Moss

Apply hot glue with glue gun to sections of bare foam and immediately place bunches of moss onto still-hot glue. Repeat this process anywhere foam or wire is visible. Mix reindeer moss with other varieties for added texture and visual interest.

Insert Fruit

Push floral skewer into fruit and insert into wreath where desired (Images 1 and 2). It is best to use very firm fruit and replace as they ripen. Work in odd numbers when incorporating large elements into wreath. Tip: Since fresh fruit will make the wreath heavy, it is best to use this wreath in a stationary place. For use on a front door, use artificial fruit.

Add Finishing Touches

Once main elements of wreath are affixed, use hot glue to fill in sparse areas with clumps of moss, small pinecones or seed pods (Images 1-3).
