Start by cutting 3 inch strips of the sheet moss. Glue the strips to the foam base with a glue gun and gently but firmly pulling it around the wreath. Secure the other end with more glue. Repeat until the entire wreath is covered.

 Then add a pretty ribbon which you can use to hang the wreath. I used a sheer gold ribbon but this project would look great with many different kinds of ribbon. I think burlap, plaid, checked and many different colors would look great. Once the ribbon is attached with a little bit of glue go ahead and adorn the top with whatever strikes your fancy. I used some fresh cedar, pine cones, cinnamon sticks and berries along with a tiny gold ball for the center.

Other options are: different florals, fruit slices, wood slices and greenery. How about adding a tiny bird at the bottom of the wreath? Or dangling acorns, bells or pine cones from the top.

As always, my hope is to inspire you to go out and create your own beauty for your home that is original as you are. I promise it will turn out great, and you will feel so rewarded by your efforts.
