The story behind this moss wrapped centerpiece basically involves the whole “I can totally make that!” mentality. You know the one? Go to store or flip through magazine, notice price of said item. Slowly try to hold back the gasps and internal ‘say whaaaatttt?’. Process the fact that there is no way in the world that you are purchasing this amazing item. Get to creating!
I honestly cannot remember where I saw this, but it was for sure a maagazine. I can clearly remember seeing the price and very loudly, and in public I might add, saying something along the lines of ‘get out of here with that noise’. BUT, I just had to have it. AHHHH why are ALL the things so pretty???
There is something so warm and welcoming about rustic decor to me. Using natural elements and organic lines and edges. It is not fussy, and blends in beautifully in a busy and bustling family home. And, I am always looking for ways to bring the outdoors inside too.
So, I got to work and created this lovely and easy DIY rustic Christmas decor project! And, you are going to be super stoked about it too because you can make it in less than 10 minutes! Because we all know that you love to create, but your time is needed elsewhere with your family! And, ain’t nobody got hours upon hours to create okay?
DIY Rustic Christmas Decor Supplies
You can find all of the items used for the moss wrapped gift box centerpiece at your local hobby and craft store. However, if you are short on time (raises hand from the back fo the room), and you need it nicely packaged up and sitting on your door step. Here you go:
When it comes to the ribbon, I used a pretty turquoise because it went with our Christmas theme. But, I honestly feel like the possibilities are endless. A red plaid or black and white houndstooth pattern would be perfection! And, keeping it real. I am leaning towards swapping out the turquoise for a pretty burlap bow this year! Talk about rustic and cozy!
Making Your DIY Rustic Christmas Decor Centerpiece
First, you will want to start with the lid. Trim the moss to be able to wrap it around the top and sides of the lid.
Make cuts into the corners of the moss. This will make wrapping the moss around the edges of the box lid much easier. Simply spread some hot glue onto the box, and gently press the moss onto the top.
Trim any of the excess moss from the sides of the lid.
When you are finished. The top of your moss wrapped gift box should look like this. Isn’t that the cutest most rustic box top ever?
Now you will be doing the exact same process to go up the sides of the box. Simply spread the hot glue on the gift box, and gently press the moss up the sides.
Now, you may start to notice that there are some gaps in the moss at the bottom of your gift box. Do not freak out! This is an incredibly easy fix.
Because you are going rustic, and using natural elements, this project is A) not about perfection and B) using natural elements means that it blends beautifully!
Simply cut some small strips of moss to fill in the gaps, and hot glue those bad boys where you need them.
See! You cannot even tell there was ever a gap there! Like you seriously cannot tell. Gosh, don’t you love a rustic craft?
Now it is time to put the top on your Christmas gift box centerpiece! YAY!
When it comes to this part, you may need to do a little jiggle to make it fit. You do not want to go crazy shaking the top on, but you also don’t have to be super gentle either. Trust me, it will make sense when you get to this step!
Finally, you will add a pretty little bow, and then you will have your beyond gorgeous and unique moss wrapped Christmas gift box!
Step back, and take that in! I mean how cool is this thing? And, as far as DIY rustic Christmas decor goes, this thing is at next level amazing creation status!
Pun totally intended! 😉
