Learn how to make a DIY moss wreath with blossoms on a grapevine wreath form for a simple and beautiful Spring wreath!
You are in the right place friend if you would rather make beautiful Spring decor rather than put out generic store-bought home decor or spend $$$ on designer decor.
It’s much more fun and satisfying to infuse your own style into the holidays and seasons. That’s why I’m excited to share how to make a moss wreath with you today!
DIY Moss Covered Wreath with Cherry Blossoms
Welcome to A Very Global Easter series day four, wreaths and wall hangings. My good friend Casa Watkins Living and I share seven days of globally inspired-Easter decor every year.
It’s a good way to repurpose, shop the house, and use craft and decor items in a new way while saving money on seasonal decor! There are lots of easy DIYs that can be done with the entire family in this unique series.
Find all of the current and past series’ decorating ideas and DIY projects on A Very Global Easter page. We have already shared Easter trees, Easter eggs, and printables this year. But you can find more wreath ideas, decorating tips, Easter decor DIYs, and more from the archives.
The series usually spans over two weeks and it goes by so fast! My global inspiration comes from Japanese cultures like Ikebana (flower arranging) and Kokedama (moss balls).
The Easter projects I share with you are a loose representation of the Japanese methods to make them easily accessible because I’m not an expert in those fields although I’ve seen and researched them while I was living in Japan for a few years!
The results are fresh and beautiful Easter and Spring handmade decor pieces that are definitely unique to traditional Easter decor. Like today’s Kokedama inspired DIY moss-covered wreath.
What you need for a DIY Moss Wreath
- Grapevine wreath form for the moss wreath base
- Reindeer moss, Spanish moss or other live or preserved green moss
- Florist wire
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Faux cherry blossom stems or other leftover flowers
A lot of these items can be found at your local dollar store! Make sure to use craft glue instead of hot glue if you try to cover a foam wreath form. Hot glue will melt it! Sheet moss is probably the best method for this type of wreath.

How to Make a Moss Wreath for Spring
The fun thing about kokedama is that the plant is potted in a mud ball covered with moss and held together with wire or string. I decided to translate this to a wreath with faux floral and moss held together with florist wire and glue.
- Place the moss on a cookie sheet or other large dish to contain it.
- Use hot glue and apply it directly to the grapevine wreath form in small sections at a time.
- Place a clump of moss on the glue and press gently to avoid burning your hand. Once the glue cools a bit you can squeeze the moss around the grapevine wreath to help keep it in place.
- Repeat the last step until the wreath is covered. I made two rounds around my wreath by first gluing the moss on the front of the wreath and then around the outside edge.
- (optional) You can spray two coats of acrylic sealant to reduce shedding at this point. Let dry before moving on to the next step.
- Place a few stems of cherry blossoms on top. Using thin-flexible stems will make this easier! Otherwise, you may need to shape them some.
- Carefully wrap florist wire around the stems and moss all the way around the wreath binding it together. Pull out flower petals and leaves from under the wire.
- Trim off any stray pieces of moss if needed. You can also gently shake the wreath and see if there are any bald spots that need more moss or wire.
- Hang and enjoy!
It would also look pretty close to my kokedama inspired Easter eggs! You can’t go wrong with a green home DIY in my book.
To wrap things up, making a DIY moss wreath for Spring is an easy and fun project that allows you to bring a little bit of nature and beauty to your seasonal home decor. With just a few materials and some creativity, you can create a whimsical and unique wreath that will look gorgeous in any space.
Whether you leave the moss wreath plain, add flowers in a kokedama style as I did, or try succulents or other embellishments to fit your style, I hope you try this Spring project.
