DIY Moss Wreath Tutorial and Spring Mantel

Pin It
Happy Earth Day! Today I will be showing you how I made this easy moss wreath for my spring mantel.

I started with a small wreath, moss and my glue gun.  I cut the moss into large strips that wrapped around the wreath.  I glued the strips onto the wreath and then filled in the holes by wrapping smaller pieces around and gluing them as well.  I finished off the wreath by tying a piece of ribbon in a bow. I wrapped a small piece of ribbon around the wreath and glued the bow onto it.

The moss wreath gives nice color to my spring mantel.  I hung the wreath on a large piece of wood that had been sprayed with chalkboard paint.

My mind went blank when I thought about what I wanted to write on the chalkboard.  I knew I wanted it to say something inspirational.  I thought about something perhaps that would be tailored to Earth Day but I didn’t want it to be cheesy.

Then into my mind popped a saying that my grandfather is known for saying, “Do Good”.  It was perfect.  Inspirational…check, could apply to Earth Day…check, just plain cool sounding…check.

The mantel also has a jar of homemade fabric flowers.  Tutorial on those and the other handmade flowers from this post will be coming soon.

What a fitting admonition for today and everyday, Do Good!!
