Moss Wreath Plaque

This was fun and inexpensive to make. I had the wood on hand already so I just cut and glued the pieces together to make a plaque. Spray painted with white, distressed and wiped down with some stain. For the wreath I used a styrifoam wreath from the craft store, fresh green moss also from the craft store (Roberts) and then began glueing with my handy dandy glue gun until it was completely covered. I tied it with some ribbon and tacked it to the back side and there you have it!
Cost breakdown:
wreath-$3.00
    moss-$3.00
That's it! $6.00. not too bad! I already had the other supplies on hand.

  3. Wow! I'm going to have to get some moss to try this! I've been finding wreath forms at Goodwill and then ripping off the old flowers & reusing the form!

  6. Cute idea. I have a piece of wood I found that looks similar to the piece you used and some moss laying around. I am going to take a shot at something similar. I love how simple, yet beautiful it is.
