Spring is here!! yay!! You have no idea how excited I am for warm weather!
As soon as Christmas is done :( , I am ready for some sunny skies, fresh spring flowers and Easter!
In our family, Easter is all about Jesus!
Sure, bunnies and baby chicks are cute but the reason for the holiday is what our Lord Jesus did on the cross and that he is risen !
So to celebrate that, I am sharing with you how to make your own festive Easter Moss Wreath.
I was considering adding some bunting to it but I kind of like the simplicity of it...just the moss and the twiggy cross. Sometimes simple is better.
Here is what you need:
-2 flexible foam pipe insulation (you can find them at any DIY- Wilko or B&Q)
-dry moss - you can use artificial moss too you can find them at your local florist or Amazon.
-green thread to match your moss
-green spray paint -
I spray painted the wreath green first, just so that if any of the base colour was showing through, it wont be noticeable, but I could have skipped this step. The moss covered everything really nice and didn't ripped that much ( I used this moss many times before for party decor and it held up really well).
-some fresh spring twigs for your cross.
Use your pipe insulation to make two circles.
For the first one I used the exact length that it came in 100 cm and 15 mm thick.
For the small one I just cut it to fit . Use tape to stick the ends together.
To be sure they won't pop open I went a bit cray cray with the tape and cover the whole thing.
Yes... there is a green spray paint circle mark now on my driveway...I should have used a piece of cardboard or something..oh well...we get plenty of rain...it will wash off...eventually.
messy fun part.
The moss that I used came in one big piece, so I just started to cover my wreath and secure it with green twine by wrapping it around it as I went. I didn't really bothered to cover the back completely, just made sure the front was nice and tidy.
I used a dot of hot glue for the twigs and then wrapped some string over the base of the cross.
And you are done!
I had the perfect spot for it! Thinking of making one for my front door! Love it so much I'm keeping it up until Christmas!
Love this little detail. You can see new life blooming!
