I’m pretty tired…because I’ve been a crafting/sewing maniac lately.
(And when I say ‘Lately’ I mean ‘All My Life.’)
Let’s refer, one more time, back to my Living Room Plans. As you can see, I designed it with two green wreaths hanging on either side of my Monogram art. Well the Monogram art hasn’t quite happened yet–(hopefully soon)–but I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for wreaths that I like.
And all pre-made wreaths are HIDEOUS. No offense to craft stores, but the cheapie pre-mades are made of the cheapest looking faux florals and I hate them.
So I had an idea…Make a wreath out of moss! That would give me the green, real look I wanted without the maintenance. Hopefully these will last forever.
Foam Wreath Form
Moss: Instant Green with the mesh backing: Make sure it has the mesh backing or this project will be a lot harder/messier than it needs to be!
|Flip over your wreath to make sure it looks the way you want it to. Then, using your scissors, cut into the middle of the wreath. Cut 7 slits in a pie format.|
|You will have some gaps after you’re done, so use your extra mossy scraps and glue them in. Who cares if it’s lump in spots…it gives it more authentic ‘mossiness.’|
|I tied on some aqua satin ribbon to a thrifted silver spray-painted frame. Doesn’t it look amazing on a door?? Perfect for spring or St. Patty’s Day.|
|But mine is actually going to hang above the couch. (And yes I realize that it’s slightly octagonal there at the bottom, but I am not a perfectionist!) Now I just need to make the other one…|
Do you love the green?!
Happy St. Patty’s Day (soon)!
