diy moss wreath & a Spring-inspired chalkboard


My husband helped me make this framed chalkboard last Spring.

It undergoes a transformation with every holiday and season. I have so much fun with it! Here are a few of my favorite chalkboard photos from last Summer, Fall, Christmas, and Winter.

I'm a fan of moss, so I thought I would make a moss wreath to hang on the board for Spring. I wanted to share a quick diy, but time escaped me and I really wanted to get it done before the Easter weekend. I managed to take a quick photo of it while I was working on it here.

Supplies
Arlene's Craft Glue & brush
grapevine wreath
bag of moss



It was so simple to make this wreath! No joking, after setting up my supplies, it took me less than 5 minutes to brush glue on the wreath, and then patch the moss on the glue until the wreath was covered.

I found the printed cotton ribbon at Hobby Lobby, and used it to hang the wreath from the top of the frame.

There's a small, shallow shelf under the chalkboard where I love to display pretty flowers. The black backdrop of the chalkboard always makes the flowers pop. It's one of my favorite 'corners' in our house.

Do you have a favorite 'corner' that you like to make-over when the seasons change?







LET'S STAY in touch!

  6. Oh, I love this wreath! And I love that chalkboard! I hopped over to that post and saw that you used a chalk marker! Genius! I need to pick up one of those for my chalkboard that I made (from a picture frame, too!) but using a different method! I think I'm going to try your chalkboard method when mine wears out!

  25. The flowers and the wreath both "pop" nicely off your chalkboard backdrop, Suzanne! The wreath turned out great and it is a nice change to use moss over flowers. Sometimes I spend so much time trying to decide what florals to use that I wind up not making the wreath at all! A moss wreath is a good alternative.
