INSTRUCTIONS

Use hot glue to attach floral foam to your wooden plaque. For this project, Klinkhammer and Rydell used wooden plaques that you can find at any local craft store while Schiltz opted for a piece of reclaimed wood.

Step 2.
Attach moss to your foam using hot glue. For this and the following tutorial, The White House Co. ordered moss from their neighbor, Love Always Floral. You can usually find moss at your local craft store or order it through your favorite flower shop.

Step 3.
If needed, hot glue floral wire across the foam and moss to secure all of your materials to the wooden plaque. “The moss does break apart, so it can be kind of tricky. That’s where the wire will come into play,” said Schiltz.
