 I made these adorable wreaths quite by accident one day.

I made a chicken wire memo board with antiqued clothespins and I needed a small wreath to hang on the chicken wire.

I searched my workshop and found this stem of artificial Spanish moss I had used for staging another project. You can find Spanish moss like this here. {affiliate link}

I formed a small wreath sized circle of thin wire and connected the ends.

Next I pulled long pieces off the Spanish moss stem and wrapped them around the wire circle. Each stem made 6 wreaths.

Finally I added an antiqued clothespin and a piece of jute for hanging.

The best part is that they will last a very long time, they look just like the Rosemary Wreaths I made a while back and these don't dry out and drop pieces!

They were very popular because I happily sold every one I made.

  1. I didn't see the moss stems at Factory Direct. What do I search for?

    1. Hi Teddee,, Search Hanging Artificial Spanish moss vine. It looks like they have a different kind now but this should also work.
