Square Moss Wreath

Here is a blast from my past... a square moss wreath...



I began by cutting foam core into a rectangle.



 Then I made another rectangle of cardboard
to give it strength.



I glued the two together.


I bought a bag of moss sheets from 

And using Gorilla Glue, gluing
the moss onto the frame.



Before I was finished I had to resort to the
glue gun, it worked much better than the glue.



I finished the wreath off with some
rosette embellishments and a ribbon to hang it.



A beautiful spring wreath!

  10. Susan this is beautiful. I have a very empty space on a built in shelf next to my fireplace mantel and I've been saying I need a plant or something green but I love the wreath idea to put there so I can still have other stuff sitting on the shelf. I hope you can stop by and link this up to my VIP party today! http://designergarden.blogspot.com/2011/04/vip-party-11.html
