Spanish moss for air plant wreath

STEP 1: Begin by spreading a bit of Spanish moss around the grapevine. The moss can really stick together so you may have to trim it off with your scissors when you have enough.

In only 3 steps you too can make an air plant wreath. First, cover the grapevine with a bit of Spanish moss. Second, add the air plants in odd numbers. Third, embellish the wreath.

Display the Wreath

If you want a tabletop arrangement the wreath doesn’t need to be hung, just lay it down on your table. Tabletop wreath stands and traditional door wreath hangers also work well.

Care

If the air plants were glued into place, regularly mist the plants with a spray bottle-this could be a daily affair if you have the time. If you didn’t use glue, remove the plants from the wreath once a week and soak in a basin of water. Allow the plants to dry upside-down for about 4 hours before returning to the wreath.

Enjoy

I hope your air plant wreath brings you happiness every time you see it!
