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)!
