They aren't just for Christmas anymore. 

Spring wreaths, summer, fall and monogrammed wreaths are very popular, but along with popularity, can bring a larger price tag! 

(Personally, I adore the Boxwood and Moss Wreath:)

So in order to make this baby shower feel whimsical and woodsy, but also feminine {and on a budget}...I made these wreaths...All under $2 a piece!

First, separate moss (suggested over a box because this stuff gets messy!)

You will find several shapes, colors and textures.

Try to intermix these for interest. I started with the light green, then the brown, and added the dark green heavier moss as accents because it is what I had the least of!

Stand back every now and then to make sure your moss is evenly placed and to make sure it is securely fastened. You wont want it falling all over your floor the moment you pick it up :)

Then, just add your ribbon!
