DIY Moss Wreath with Simple Rope Accents
Hey there! Its Sara from Twelve On Main. I am excited to be here today! I don’t know about you, but I have spring fever bad. I’ve been working on a lot of spring projects at my home and this is one of my most recent projects. I am bringing you my DIY moss wreath with simple rope accents.
I love to use moss, in all its organic goodness. Its the perfect accessory for spring but its also perfect all year around, so making one of these not only benefits your home in the spring, but it can be hung all year.
There are so many different ways you can create a DIY moss wreath. I have tried a few different ways, and each type will have a different look to them. I like using a wreath form, but I have used a cardboard cutout as well.
Here are the supplies I used for this DIY moss wreath:
- Moss Sheets
- Styrofoam wreath form
- hot glue gun
You want to start by breaking apart the moss. You could certainly apply the moss without breaking it up, but I think it looks better when it is a little rough looking. Apply hot glue to the wreath, and apply small patches of moss as a time.
Keep applying the moss until you have filled the whole form.
Once the wreath is complete, its time to add the rope accents.
I really wanted to add something unique, and something simple. The moss wreath alone is pretty, and I didn’t want to add al ot of embellishments, but I felt like it needed something.
I decided to do a single crochet stitch with my fingers.
Start by tying the rope into a slip know.
Once you have the slip knot, feed the longer length through the loop of the knot. Pull it through and create another loop. Repeat this until you have the length you need.
I gathered 3 pieces of this crocheted rope together and looped them around the wreath. I then tied them together with another single piece of rope. This will serve as the piece to hang the wreath from.
I love the simplicity of this DIY moss wreath. The rope adds a little bit more texture and interest to it. Perfect for spring, or any time of year.
I am so glad I was able to stop by. I hope you’ll come check out some of my other recent projects including my Spring Home Tour!
Have a great day!
