12 Easy Wreaths for Christmas
Set the stage for the holiday with pretty, festive wreaths you can make yourself.
What To Do:
Turn the live wreath frame so the curved side is down facing your work surface. Cut the sphagnum moss with scissors into 6- x 16-inch strips. Line the wreath form with the moss strips, overlapping each one about ¼ inch. Then fill with potting soil to the top. Fold over moss strips and secure, with florist pins.
Reattach the back of the wreath frame, and turn it over. To plant the succulents and flowers, cut slits in the moss. Pull apart moss, and remove some potting soil if you need to. Loosen up the plant root and remove excess dirt. Plant it, cover with moss, and secure with florist pins. You may also want to get extra moss to use to cover the wired wreath form until your plants fill it in.
Tip: Don't forget to cover visible parts of the frame with extra moss. To water your wreath, remove it from wherever it is hanging. Water as needed with a spray bottle. Rehang after it has drained.
