Moss and Burlap Patriotic Wreath


With the Fourth of July around the corner I wanted to share a very neutral, yet patriotic wreath that my door has been dressed up in this month. I'm not big into cutesy holiday decor but I do love a good wreath, so when Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts asked me to join her in sharing a patriotic wreath idea, I said definitely.

I decided on a moss wreath with a little burlap and a star and learned along the way how to do it.

Supplies: 1 moss table runner
                1 metal star
                1 18 inch grapevine wreath
                2 yards of burlap ribbon
                hot glue

I started with all of my supplies and knew I needed to somehow attach the moss first. I cut the table runner into crescent shapes that would wrap around the wreath. It took three sections to cover the entire circle.

To have the moss wrap smoothly, I had to cut out wedges from the inside edge of the wreath. Then it would glue down without bunching.

I used an industrial glue gun with plenty of hot glue. It worked great to stick the moss table runner down to the wreath form.

If you're a video tutorial type of person, I have a quick video on the basics of making this wreath - enjoy! (The video is about 8 minutes total - this wreath is the lats 4 minutes, and there's another cute wreath shown on the first half of the video.) 

And as another note, I realize I do not seem THRILLED to be here in this video....I really was- I just normally look grouchy maybe....who knows??? I'll try to be more chipper and smiley next time!!

After I glued down all of the moss I needed to attach the star and the burlap. I just cut two small wire peices and threaded them through the star and then the wreath. I cinched them tight enough to hold it in place.



For the ribbon, I cut a small section and made a loop with it by gluing the ends together. Then I strung the rest of ribbon through and tied a bow until it looked about right.

So super easy right? I love how simple it is and I think it is really versatile for all seasons. Now that I have a moss wreath form I may just have to change out that star for other holidays!!
