10 In Creating a Lifestyle/ Gardening, Growing, Fun with Flowers


It’s not very often that you get any time to do something purely for the joy of it – and so when my mom and dad came to stay for a few days, I managed to steal a few minutes to myself at the table and whip up one of my favourite decorations – a flower wreath.
I promise you that they’re the easiest to make and so beautiful around the house and garden – and I’ll show you how you can make one below, in about ten minutes!

I’m slightly in love with it.

This is everything you’re going to need.  I got my wreath rings on Amazon in a pack of 10, along with some floral wire which was around £1 for a spool.  The moss comes from the forest generally [although in this case, it comes from my mom and dad after they finished setting up their hanging baskets], and the flowers I cut from my garden and bought from the market.

Push clumps of moss through the two bars of the wreath.  Watch out for little friends, if you know what I mean!  They love hiding in moss!  Hold the visitor-free moss in place and wind some of the floral wire around to secure.  Repeat this until all of your ring is covered.  The wire is dark and so it’s well camouflaged.

When your wreath is fully stuffed with moss, you can start to add the flowers – position them where you like, tucking into the moss to disguise ends of stems, and using the wire, secure those too.
And that’s everything you need to know.  It really is that simple!

    This is absolutely stunning!

    I've never made a wreath from scratch with a frame and moss, I've always used ready-made ones but you do make it sound very simple.

    I wish I'd read this earlier, I emptied a pile of moss out of my birdbath the other day!
