Moss Wreath

I have been on a hunt for a wreath for my front door, something simple and springy. Just in time a post popped up from Amanda Carver Designs and her post was brilliant (as always). It was a moss wreath {you can see her's here}! So I went to Michael's and purchased a foam wreath and a package of moss. I had to cut the moss to fit it around the wreath form and used a hot glue gun to attach it. Once I was finished I looked around the house for something to hang it. I had a ton of this raffia left over from Christmas, so it worked perfect.


And here is my moss wreath on my front door. I love how the green pops against the red :)

Yarn Wreaths

I love Etsy but sometimes something I love is overpriced. That something happened to be a yarn wreath, priced anywhere from $25-$50. So I got the supplies and decided I would have some fun and make my own!

Wrapping the yarn around the foam was the longest process and I did two because I wanted one for our living room and bedroom. Here is the grey one:


And here is the tan one:






Next came the fabric flowers. I went to the fabric store and got navy, brown, and cream fabric -- this was a little tricky but I got the hang of it after making one.

And here are the beauts, they hang in my living room and bedroom.
