I’m doing things this week that I don’t like doing: shopping for school supplies and back to school clothes.
The unnamed child starts back next Friday, and like it or not, we better get ready.
Today we knocked some of the clothing off the list, and Thursday we’re working on the school supplies.
As we are winding down the summer, I thought I would try to squeeze in a couple of more summer projects.
Here is what you will need for my Butterfly Moss Wreath (all of my supplies came from Michael’s)
- 10-12 inch styrofoam wreath form
- A package of moss cloth
- A roll of wired ribbon
- A pipe cleaner the same color as your ribbon
- Some butterflies ( I got mine in the dollar bin at Michaels), and
- A glue gun
First, you take your long sheet of moss and cut it into three long strips (the strips will be the entire length of your sheet).
Then start wrapping them around your wreath form, gluing it on as you go along. Once the entire wreath is covered, just start gluing on your butterflies wherever you choose.
Next, take some ribbon and tie it in a knot around the top of your wreath.
Then make a bow with your ribbon — I have one of the bow makers that you get at Michael’s. (I use it a ton!) Then, using a pipe cleaner, attach your bow to the ribbon looped around your wreath.
That’s it! Super easy!

Oh my gosh Shanna, love the color of your door. There’s a house around the corner from me that has a similar color. I have been tempted to ask if I can take pictures of some of my things on their door. The reef you made goes perfect on yours.
Thank you Heather! I’m glad you like it because my hubby hates it!
