Nothing welcomes spring to your house with a bold front door color, a vibrant container, and a wreath that you can make yourself. Here are three ideas that are easy, but like nothing that you’ve ever seen.
Begin with a living wreath form. We used a medium size with a 20-inch-diameter wire ring. First, line the form with damp sheet moss or sphagnum moss cloth. Then fill with potting soil.
Enclose the soil with more moss on the backside. If applicable to your form, place the back of the form over the packed wreath, and close.
On the front of the wreath, make small holes with scissors or needle-nose pliers. Insert clippings (we used succulents, ivy, ferns, and reindeer moss), and use U-shaped florist pins to secure the plants in place.
Simply swap out the bouquet when you want a new look.
Start off with a square grapevine wreath. Lightly coat it with a layer of white spray paint.
Soak asmall, round florist foam cage in water to make it damp. Use florist wire to affix the cage to the bottom center of the square form so it faces out (not up).
Take a bouquet of flowers (here, we used white anemones), and cut each stem in half.
Insert the top half of each flower stem (the part with the bloom) into the top of the florist foam cage. Insert the bottom half of each stem (just the stem) into the bottom part of the florist foam cage.
Then disguise the remaining visible foam by pinning Spanish moss to it and covering it with ribbons tied in a colorful bow.
