well today I show you my wreath of 2009 – my moss wreath!
Usually I start to collect my advent wreath ideas around October. The whole wreath mania started about 10 years ago. I was invited to an incentive where I learned how to a tie a fir wreath. Ever since I’ve made my own unique advent wreath. A few years I had a traditional wreath and just decorated it differently.
But than I wanted to be more creative and started experimenting with different supplies and ideas. So I came up with moss. I have seen some moss wreaths on the internet and at our florist.wreath made of moss rocks by Sharon, moss wreath with ribbon made by Leah
Then one night at my grandmas backyard, while walking over the lawn, I had this squishy feeling beneath my feet. I was walking on moss. And my idea was born.
I cut a
huge tiny square right out of the lawn. I had two pieces which nearly covered the entire form I used. I didn’t want to puzzle smaller pieces. I like the clean look. I put it on the radiator to dry. Make sure it is really dry. When I worked with mine it wasn’t and it made gluing tough.
I don’t have really good pictures because in 2009 I never would have thought to show my moss wreath on the internet yet alone on my very own blog. So sorry for the crappy look today.
Anyway. I love it. It has been in my house, my parents and this year I’m giving it to my friend for the season. What are you doing with the wreath you make? Does it end up in the trash after the season? Or do you have a swapping party with friends?
Looking forward to you comments. Love Tobia

Wow, sieht toll aus dein Kranz! Ich habe unseren letztes Jahr gemacht, dieses Jahr wird er auf jeden Fall nochmal bei uns zum Einsatz kommen. Ich bin nämlich immer noch ganz verliebt in ihn :) Mal sehen, wie es nächstes Jahr so ist…
Ich habe in den letzten Tagen auch einige Adventskränze bei Pinterest gesehen, die mir sehr gefielen, am schönsten finde ich momentan die drei hier:
Ok, das sind alles keine “Kränze” im eigentlichen Sinne, aber ich finde sie einfach super :)
Ganz liebe Grüße,
Oh den Teller #3 find ich auch toll. Vielleicht sammle ich hier nächstes Jahr mal solche Interpretationen…
Hach es gibt so viele tolle Dinge…
Thank you for sharing my Moss Rock Wreath. Your wreath is so prett. I like the silver accents, such a nice contrast to the natural moss.
Thank you Sharon. I really liked this one too.
