What you need:
A foam form. (I paid about $6 for this one at Hobby Lobby. It was with the foam stuff, not the wreath forms.)
A hot glue gun
Moss (find it in the floral department at the craft store)

Here's what it looks like half way done. This is a messy little project. Because you are using real moss, and it's a little dirty, prepare your work area for easy clean up.

And here it is hanging on my front door. I love how simple it is. You could totally add stuff to dress it up. I'm thinking hydrangeas or ranunculus. The options are limitless! OR just leave it simple, fresh, and green! Oh, I'm loving all these ideas!

I just adore the fresh greenery. And the best part is... no watering. Since I am the queen of killing plants, this is a serious plus in my book!
