Step 2: Prep the Wreath
spraying the wreathIn a ventilated area (outside works best), spray adhesive to cover the front of your straw wreath.

applying moss to wreath Working quickly, cover the tacky surface with an even layer of Spanish moss, pressing down firmly to secure the moss. This will create a nautral-looking background for any tiny holes between your pinecones.

trimming a wreathRepeat in “bald” spots if necessary. Trim the extra Spanish moss, cropping it closely to the wreath.

Let dry completely. An hour should be good.
