Jen from Tatertots & Jello shared her fall wreath tutorial yesterday, and today it’s my turn. A while ago, I purchased quite a few bags of moss rocks from a local dollar store, and I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with them. Well, they make me think of a cool walk in the woods, which makes me think of fall, and that’s how my Moss Rock & Pumpkin Fall Wreath came to be.
It took quite a few bags of moss rocks to make the wreath, but since they’re only $1.00 a bag, you can make this wreath for less than $20. I want to use this wreath again in the spring, so I pinned on the leaves and picked on the pumpkin, and they’ll be easy to remove.
To make a Moss Rock & Pumpkin Fall Wreath, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” wreath
- Moss green acrylic craft paint (I used Apple Barrel)
- Moss rocks, 55 – 60 (approximately)
- Floral moss, one bag
- A few silk leaves
- Faux pumpkin
- Twine, about 12”
- Wood skewer
- Low-temp glue gun
- Tools needed: Paintbrush; straight pins
To make a Moss Rock & Pumpkin Fall Wreath:
1. Paint the wreath green and let dry.
2. Arrange the rocks on the wreath (don’t glue them on yet). Carefully remove the rocks, and rearrange them on your work surface in roughly the same order that you intend to glue them onto the wreath.
3. Once you know how you would like to arrange the moss rocks, begin gluing them around the outside and inside edges of the wreath first. Then, glue the rocks onto the front of the wreath.
4. Tuck several silk leaves in and around the moss rocks. Pin in place.
5. Fill in any holes with small bits of moss.
6. Break your wood skewer into two, 3” lengths. Insert and glue the skewer pieces into the bottom of the pumpkin. Insert the other end of the wood picks into the wreath.
7. Hang with twine.
