DIY: Moss Toadstool Wreath


After making my mini terrariums for the DIY on Skunkboy Creatures last week, I had quite a bit of leftover preserved sheet moss. So, I decided to make a wreath!

What you'll need:
  • preserved sheet moss
  • wreath (straw or styrofoam)
  • styrofoam balls (different sizes)
  • red fabric
  • hot glue
  • white cardstock
  • white fabric paint
  • ribbon for hanging the wreath

Hot glue the sheet moss to the wreath.

Cut the styrofoam balls in half. Now cut your red fabric into circles big enough to wrap around the styrofoam balls. Use hot glue to secure the fabric.

Paint white dots on to the fabric using fabric paint.

Cut strips of white cardstock and roll them up. Use hot glue to secure the rolled paper and then glue them to the bottoms of the styrofoam balls.

Make little holes in the moss to place your mushrooms. Put a little hot glue on the bottom of the mushrooms before placing them into the moss to make sure they are secure.

Hang and enjoy!
Tip: since this is made using paper and fabric, it's probably best for indoor use.

  6. Hi Elizabeth, I found you via pinterest. I made one for my front door (did a few things differently.) I did a blog post that will go live 4/8/13 if you want to see it. I gave you credit for everything and linked back to this post so people could see your tutorial if they wanted to. Thanks for this wonderful idea!
