As we’re getting closer to Christmas, I thought it’d be fun to play around with using moss to make a decorative piece for the house. After all, it’s green, so that makes it appropriate for the season, right? I ended up with this festive orb. It can be used for table decor, or even hung up as a mistletoe. So turn on the carols and let’s get crafting!
- Styrofoam Ball
- Cloth Covered Floral Wire
- Thin Floral Wire
- Wire Cutters
- Berry Garland
- Sheet Moss (I used a bag and a half)
Insert the cloth covered floral wire into the Styrofoam ball and punch it through so that both ends protrude.
Lastly, pin the ribbon around the berry garland, then add a bow to the larger of the wire loops on the ball.
You can vary up the decorations on the moss however you’d like. For instance, you could pin tinsel on, instead of ribbon, or if you had small acorns, you could glue those onto a pin and pin them to the moss. The options are endless!
