how to decorate a wreath

Step 1: Cover foam wreath with moss using low-heat glue gun.

Step 2: Attach everything else. Poke sturdy stems into the foam and use glue gun/florists tape for flimsy feathers.

Step 3: Hang it on your door!

The peacock feathers were my starting point. (My favorite bird.) I wanted to use a more modern monochromatic look, so I stuck with green moss, berries and leaves. The materials for the wreath cost ~$28. While I was shopping, I thought, “Oh, this stuff is all so cheap!” But it added up. I also had to buy a glue gun, glue sticks, floral wire, and floral tape. So my project was a bit more than $28. 🙂 But, I’ve been wanting a wreath for my door for a while and am happy with how this turned out, and it was a fun project… so no harm done!
