  • Styrofoam wreath form (or a wire form)

Instructions

  1. Create a wreath hanger at the top of the wreath using sturdy wire wrapped around the form and bent into a hanging loop.
  2. Cover a Styrofoam wreath form with sheet moss using U-shaped pins to attach the moss. (On a wire form, wrap thin florist's wire all the way around the wreath to secure the moss.)
  3. Next, use U-shaped pins or dabs of hot glue to attach preserved or artificial leaves all around the wreath.
  4. If desired, hang a pumpkin ornament in the center.
