I love wreathes in the home and outside especially a garden wreath. Today, I will be creating a beautiful and easy garden wreath.
I thought it would be fun to create a beautiful garden wreath to hang on the bench. One with small terra cotta pots and elements you find in nature.
What are the different types of bases for wreaths? The classic wreath forms are wire frames, foam, straw or grapevine. People make wreathes from old picture frames too. I have even made a wreath using cardboard cutout.
For my wreath, a grapevine wreath is going to give me that organic look. It will be perfect to use for a garden wreath.
Let’s get started!

1. Layout your design for Your Garden Wreath
The first thing to do is to lay out the pots and bow on the wreath. Play around with the design to see how you like the spacing and directions of the terra cotta pots.
I like to take a picture with my iPhone to refer back to it.
2. Adding the terra cotta pots
You will want the terra cotta pots secured tight on the wreath with little movement. To achieve this, you need to insert wire through the pot.
Pull the wire through the grapevine wreath and pull the loose wires as tight as possible. Try to twist it around the grapevine branches to secure it in place. There should be little movement. Use wire cutters to trim the extra wire. You should tuck the ends of the wires into the grapevine.
3. adding the moss
Before adding the moss, you should tie on your burlap bow. Normally, bows are often added at the very end. However, we are going to be working moss into blank areas of the wreath.
To add the moss, you can use either a hot glue with a glue gun or fast Quick Dry Tacky Glue. I highly recommend that you have a pencil, popsicle stick or a regular stick from the yard to press down the moss to the wreath with hot glue.
You want to avoid burning your finger. I had a mishap and knew better.
Work in the various different types of moss through out your wreath. It is going to add beautiful texture into your wreath. You can add the moss inside a few of the terra cotta pots as well.
4. finishing touches
The finishing touches will be adding some faux succulents in a couple of the pots. You can also include a sweet bird or even a bird nest. There are so many wonderful options. I purchased two stems of faux succulents from Hobby Lobby and cut them apart.
The finished project
This wreath looks beautiful hanging in the mudroom. It would look lovely on a front porch or screen-in porch. How about hanging in on a backdoor.
What wonderful would this me for a Mother’s Day gift? I would love receiving a beautiful wreath as a gift.
With the variety of different preserved moss, it adds beautiful color and texture to the wreath.
As much as I love in in hanging on the hook in the mudroom, it would look beautiful over my potting table too. I may need to make another one!
Another idea is you can tilt your pots upwards and fill with potting soil and use real succulents in your wreath for an outdoor wreath. Can you imagine how beautiful it would be?
