Remember last week’s Moss Wreath? Hard to forget really, what with it being made out of a pool noodle and mushrooms. Well this is the same wreath done in a different way.
I’ve made it especially for you traditionalists who believe an Easter wreath must involve yellow or pink. Behold the beauty that is …
Exact same pool noodle moss wreath …
Exact same moss bed in the centre …
Completely different filling and thus feeling. It’s the Peep Wreath. Full of all the tacky charm we’ve come to expect from Easter Decorations. You can see how I’ve cleverly hung the majestically soaring Peep with a piece of U wire and some fishing line. It’s too bad I didn’t need a red and white fishing bobber in this wreath. Because I have one in my purse at this very moment. I’d have been a FANTASTIC Let’s Make a Deal contestant.
The Peeps are secured with toothpicks, exactly the same way the mushrooms were secured.
Plus I bought a single stem of green Button Mums for .99¢ and stuck them in. No water or anything. Just stuck em in. They’ll last for a shocking amount of time this way. They have prohibitionist petals. They can go for ages without a single drink. If you don’t feel like torturing the flowers and you have tiny, plastic bud vials, you can put them in those and hide the vials in the moss. I didn’t. I’m a bit of a flower masochist at times. Or a sadist. As I’ve mentioned before I get those confused all the time. The gist of it is, I’m mean to flowers.
And no, we are NOT done with the pool noodle wreath. Later this week I will have one final example of how to do up this moss wreath with what I believe will be a perfect combination of the organic and natural look I like and the traditional Easter look that others like.
