Create a living wreath to hang on your gate or fence to welcome guests.
I gathered supplies I needed for the wreath. Some moss, waxed string or wire, a 12" wreath form, 9 Impatiens, garden gloves, scissors.
I wrapped some moistened moss under the wreath form and placed a plant in the wreath. I placed more moss around the plants side and top and used moss to fill in next to the plant. Then I wound the string over the sides of the plant to hold it in.
Here I have three plants in the wreath. Take your time to get the spacing correct. Use moss in between the plants to add spacing.
Look on the back of the wreath and add more moss if needed. Here you can still see the wreath form. Use string to secure the moss. Add moss wherever it is needed.
Place your completed wreath on a flat surface for a couple of days to let the plants settle. Add some wire or an 'S' hook to hang it up.
Materials I used for this project:
- 12" wreath form
- 8-9 2" Impatien plants
