Modern Monogram Moss Wreath

If you are tired of hanging a traditional wreath on your door, you are going to love this monogram moss wreath. (Click through for a video tutorial).

Ever since painting our doors bright turquoise last spring, I’ve felt the need to update our door decor. I like hang wreaths on the double front doors for each season and the spring wreaths I made right after we bought house match the new color. So I decided to make some new decor for the door, but instead of a traditional round wreath I made a hanging moss covered monogram letter.

Learn how to make your own monogram moss wreath in the video below.

Now I just love how the bright green moss pops against the turquoise door! Since we have double front doors, I just have to decide if I should make another one for the other door. I think these moss letters would also make great wedding day decor. I’m picturing them hanging from the doors of a church or reception venue or even hanging behind the bride and groom at the alter.

Tutorials on how to make the gold sunburst mirror and the glitter striped state art are on my YouTube channel. The retro bicycle print is from Matte Stephens.

Supplies:

– cardboard letter
moss sheet, not loose moss, the sheets are much easier to work with
– scissors
– hot glue gun and extra glue sticks
– wide fabric or ribbon, I used a piece of white fabric that I painted with black craft paint in the same style as my spotted terra cotta pots

    Hi! This looks so great! I just got home from buying the supplies but now I’m curious – how did you actually hang this? Is it tacked down somehow on the back of the door? Thank you for sharing!

      Good question! I tacked the fabric to the very top of the door using a couple thumbtacks and a hammer. This way the edges of the fabric are hidden and looks nice and clean!

        Perfect! I’m thinking I will try a 3m Velcro strip. It turned out really great, though I realized I hadn’t actually purchased sheet moss, so I ended up gluing several clumps instead of a smooth sheet.

        So happy to have discovered you today on IG. I live in Lake Wales, but frequently trek to WP because I love it so! And, because I daydream of working at Rifle Paper Co! ;) I’d love to catch one of your classes at West Elm!
