Spring Moss Wreath

 Happy Monday Everyone.  I hope you all had a great weekend and this post finds you healthy and happy.  I will not be around very much this week, I have to get my taxes done. I really tried to get some of it done this weekend, but, the weather was so beautiful, I made a wreath instead.



I made this wreath for my back patio.



I stared with this flat wreath form that I got from Michael's.  The styrofoam wreath was more than double the price.  I didn't have a 40% off coupon, so, this is what I came home with - he he



Now, I looked at moss at Michael's and it was around 7.99 for a package of moss with three different colors in a bag.  Although the bag was a little bigger, it was still $7.99.  I went to The Dollar Tree and found these for only $1.00.  I bought four bags (which was still cheaper) and used only two.  I saved enough money on the moss to pay for the flat wreath form - ha ha.



I really liked the three colors.



I guess four colors, this is really spongy.





I sprayed the flat form with tacky spray and started to stick it on.  I also used a little tacky glue in places to make it thicker.



I got this awesome ribbon after Christmas for 90% off.  I only paid .69 cents -- YEAH :)





It has a natural look, like the wreath.



I found a nest and bird eggs in my spring supplies.





There you have it, and, the best part is that it cost under $10.00 to make.  I really like the natural look, but, I think it looks more like summer.  I bet it will be hanging around the back of the house for a while.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

XOXO



I am ready to party down HERE.
