Craft yourself a great door wreath! Decorating, such as the wreath on your door, is part of the Advent season. That’s why we’ve put together a crafting tip that combines both: an Advent door wreath. Sophia from maybeyoulike has got the bug for this pre-Christmas crafting passion. She reveals how she made this great door wreath using Decorative Moss, Figures and little Snowy Fir Trees.
Instructions from Sophia from Maybe-you-like.com
You need that
- Straw wreath
- Hot glue gun
- Floral pins
- Decorative Moss
- Mini figures
- Snowy Fir Trees
First, you need a straw wreath. You can find this in various sizes at your local DIY store or at florists’. For our door wreath, we took one with a diameter of 35 cm. In addition, you’ll need a hot glue gun, floral pins and a lot of Decorative Moss. For decoration, you can choose from different Figures by NOCH kreativ and Snowy Fir Trees of different heights.
Off we go: the Decorative Moss is now affixed to the straw wreath either with the help of floral pins or glued directly onto it with the hot glue gun. The advantage of floral pins is that you can later remove the moss and use it for another DIY project. Everything is a bit more stable and also goes slightly faster with hot glue. Whichever method you choose for attaching the wreath, you simply start at one spot and work your way up bit by bit until everything is green. We chose to use dark green moss for the door wreath, but you can also pick colourful moss in autumn colours.
Now you can give your creativity free rein and decorate the wreath with Snowy Fir Trees of different heights and mini figures as the mood takes you. The Fir Trees and Figures are simply glued directly onto the Iceland moss with hot glue. Firmly press everything down!
To finish off, tie a fitting ribbon at the top of the wreath so that it can be hung up later. I chose bright pink, but you can also go for a plain white ribbon, depending on what you like best and what suits your door.
