Here is an easy way to get an expensive moss wreath look on a budget. Using a few common craft supplies you can create your own Anthropologie-inspired masterpiece. Follow this DIY moss wreath tutorial and have a new wreath in under 30 minutes!
Today I have a really easy DIY wreath tutorial for you! It combines two of my favorite things: bringing nature into my home and also making my own DIY dupe of something that I spotted in one of my favorite high-end catalogs like Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, Arhaus, Terrain…etc.
Hey, I know my readers are like me and just love the looks we see in all of these stores but the price tags…yikes! So I’ve made it my mission here at Cottage on Bunker Hill to bring you as many high-end dupe DIYs and knock-off looks that I can churn out!
So for today’s DIY tutorial, I am going to show you step-by-step how you can recreate almost the exact same moss wreath look that Anthropologie sells for $150!
All you will need is a couple of bags of moss, a foam wreath form, and a hot glue gun.

How To Make A Moss Wreath
So when I fell in love with the $150 Anthropologie wreath my first thought was how can I make the look for less??
I actually found the same moss at Michael’s ( I can’t find it on their website to link) and Amazon also has the same moss that I used for this wreath.
Moss Wreath: Step-by-Step Tutorial
All I used for this wreath was a foam wreath form and 1½ bags of a moss variety pack. The Anthropologie moss wreath form is larger than the size I made but I went with what was in stock at Michael’s.
So if you choose a larger wreath form then also buy an extra bag of moss.
OK, I’ve made about a bazillion wreaths in my time…but this one is sooooo easy to make!!!
Starting on one side I drizzled the hot glue onto the foam wreath form and added a piece of the green moss. Be very careful when working with a hot glue gun, especially when you are gluing the moss into place. I recommend using finger protectors to prevent burning.
Because I wanted my wreath to look just like the one from Anthropologie I actually kept their product photo open on my iPad so I could use it as my guide.
My Anthropologie inspiration wreath actually has the same moss mix on it!
As you are gluing the clumps of moss onto the wreath form make sure to keep them close together, you do not want the foam showing through.
Tip: Rip the moss into smaller pieces to get a more textured layered look on the wreath.
When I say this was a quick project…it took less than 10 minutes from start to finish!
I needed about ½ of the second bag of moss I bought, amazingly I didn’t have any moss in my craft stash!!
Fill Gaps With Moss
Once I was done filling the front of the wreath with moss, it was time to fill in around the edges of the foam wreath with pieces of the moss. When the wreath is hanging you don’t want any of the light green foam peeking through.
It was easier to do this from the backside of the wreath.
Seriously, it looks like the same wreath, doesn’t it???
…but my Anthro dupe wreath cost about 130 dollars less!!
The Finished Anthropologie-Inspired Wreath
Since I first made this wreath two years ago I have to say that I still love it!! Considering that I have made over 30 wreaths on this blog, this DIY moss wreath is always right at the top of the list as a favorite!
Check out my youtube video!
So what do you think?? A pretty good dupe project, right!! I really, really love how it came out! The texture and the natural elements are really so cool.
Moss needs to be kept out of the direct sun or it will begin to fade. So hang your wreath away from a window.
This wreath is also seasonless, and you could hang it either inside or on your front door (as long as it was protected from the elements and birdies making nests!!)
