Looking for an easy way to decorate your door? Check out how to make a floral wreath step by step to welcome your guests with a smile! This DIY moss ball floral wreath is great for spring or all year long!
We’re excited to join our blog buddies for another easy tutorial today! We’re each sharing a new wreath idea to adorn your doors. We came up with this moss ball wreath idea from our recent wood bead wreath.
I found an old bag of moss balls in my craft stash, I think I got them from my sister or thrifting, I can’t remember but I’m sure glad my craft hoarding was a win this time around!
Moss ball floral wreath
It was really simple to put this wreath together since I had everything in my stash.
I mentioned it below but if your artificial balls have styrofoam in them, they’ll be messy when you puncture them. The little foam bits get stuck in the balls so create a second work space to avoid having to pick the foam out of it.
Other than that, this whole project should take about 30 minutes, start to finish.
What’s your favorite thing about this fun spring wreath?

How to make a floral moss ball wreath
Start by making holes in the moss balls. We used a drill bit so it would go by faster but you could also use a long screwdriver as the inside is easy to pierce since it’s styrofoam.
NOTE: Styrofoam makes a big mess and the moss balls are like magnets to it so make the holes in a different work area to avoid having to pick out pieces of foam from the moss.
Use floral wire to attach the leaves and flower stems to the embroidery hoop.
Wrap wire to the backside of the wreath then use the snips to tighten by twisting them as close to the hoop as you can get.
I’m in love with it!! I’ve never seen another wreath quite like it!
Look how pretty the flowers are all bunched together!
How to hang a floral wreath
You can tie a loop of bakers twine through the top of the wreath to easily hang it. It’s lightweight so it’s easy to hang!
We’re big fans of command hooks too! They won’t damage doors or walls which is a huge bonus so you don’t have a need to touch up paint.
