I had the supplies to make this year’s spring/summer wreath for MONTHS before finally found an opportunity last week to put it together. I’ve really been into the look of moss and burlap lately, so I bought rolls of moss ribbon and burlap ribbon without any real vision in mind other than knowing I wanted to combine the two. Here’s how I made it:
Supplies: I failed to get a photo of the supplies used, but I used a straw wreath, two rolls of this moss ribbon, two rolls of burlap ribbon from the Dollar Tree (you CANNOT beat burlap ribbon for only $1), and pins.
I wrapped the burlap ribbon around the wreath, overlapping it so none of the wreath underneath showed through. I secured the start and end of each roll of burlap ribbon with pins and turned the visible ends under so it looks nice even though they’re on the back of the wreath. I wasn’t really planning on using pins from the get-go, but they actually inserted into the straw wreath really easily and securely.
Originally, I planned on covering half-of-so of the wreath in moss ribbon in a solid block. However, the moss ribbon didn’t want to lay right, so I ended up doing single strips of it, secured with pins on the back.
I did six strips. It kinda reminded me of a rustic lifebuoy at this point
I had these two pieces of moss ribbon left over and decided they were the perfect size for bows! I just pinched them and tied the middles with twine.
I then pinned them onto each side of the wreath.
The wreath was too big to fit into my wreath hanger, so I used pins and a strip of burlap to make a loop.
Not to brag, but I love how this wreath turned out
I said this on last year’s wreath post, too, but man do we need to paint our front door.
Begonias are my favorite annual this year…love ‘em!
And that’s our front porch for this spring and summer! Do you update your porch each season?
