I have been making wreaths. This one is a little time consuming, but the result is pretty.
The supplies needed are on the collage.
I made two different kinds. Personally, I prefer the one with the more expensive moss, but it took an entire bag. The expensive moss is prettier, cleaner, smells fresher, and is more compact. In contrast, the wreath for the front porch was made with inexpensive moss. I used a punch to make butterflies, because it is faster than cutting my own. I used scrap booking paper that I already had, though any will do. If the paper is thinner the butterflies are a little floppy. The pins were tiny silver ones from the sewing section, though on the outside wreath I added a few colored ones for accents. I found the wreath form at a dollar store.
One For the Front Porch...
I hot glued the moss on, pinned the cut-out butterflies, pinned the ribbon, and that was that.
And One for the Sleeping Porch...
Have a wonderful week.
