You'd think that would be enough but I wanted something different for the spring door. Moss wreaths are really popular, but not cheap- especially when I came make my own.

I like the square/rectangle ones best. But have you ever seen a square or rectangle foam wreath form? I don't know because I never looked for one before....but after 3 stores I gave up. I just bought a solid foam rectangle.
I only needed to buy a few project supplies. The moss is from jo-fabs.
I drew the cut lines right on the plastic packaging, thinking it would be a smoother writing surface. And if I messed up it would be less of a hassel.
Using an exacto knife I cut my wreath. I wasn't hard to do, but was more challenging and time consuming than I predict (the story of most of my crafts).
Oh, and it was messy.
I wrapped and cut the moss. It was pretty simple, but messy, which this time I predicted so I used an old box to help with clean-up. The moss was attached with the glue gun, carefully as the moss is not very thick and easily burned my skin.
Finally product. I realized how easily the moss shed, so I spent 10 minutes knocking the wreath with my hand and on the table. A bunch of moss came off.
However after close to 2 months hanging on the door, the shedding (just from daily use) hasn't stopped. And the wreath is starting to look a bit bald in spots- look at the bottom right corner and bottom sides. I think painting the foam before attaching the moss might have helped with this issue.
Have you ever used moss in your decor?
