Stuff you'll need:

waterproof florists' tape
bucket
spray bottle
water-soluble fertilizer

How to make it:

wreath3
Take each plant you have selected out of its container (1), and soak in a container of water.

wreath4
Soak the sheet moss in a bucket of water (2), then place the wire form flat on a covered surface (3). Pack the sheet moss all around

wreath5
(4). The moss will drape over the form, so wrap it around the form and secure the moss by wrapping it with florist's wire (the moss will keep the roots of your plants moist).

Wrap ends of wire securely; cut with wire cutters (5).

Loosen the roots and place the plants in the moss (6).

Secure the plants with greening pins (7).

Wind the waterproof florists' tape around the moss to hold moss and plant in place. Do this to wrap the entire wreath with one long piece of tape. Tie off the ends and by wrapping them together with florist's wire.

wreath9

Cover any visible soil, tape or wire with moss (8).
Wrap the entire wreath with florists' wire, securing each plant and the moss.

Water your wreath by misting it with a spray bottle that has a mixture of water-
soluble fertilizer/water in it.

Decorate your living wreath according to each season by filling in the gaps between the plants with décor depicting the season. I've used fall foliage in the finished example, but you can change the fillers each season to celebrate Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Flag Day - whatever you feel like celebrating!

    Great craft and resonably priced to make for an organizer.
