Musty Wreath Relic

Martha Stewart Living, October 2008

No one will dare darken your doorstep while this aging, spider-infested wreath hangs over it.

The secret is reindeer moss, actually a lichen, available at crafts stores and garden centers.

The natural color of the moss, combined with some creepy-crawly embellishments, will make it appear as though you pulled the wreath from the depths of a cobweb-covered attic.

1. Hot-glue handfuls of moss to a Styrofoam wreath form until covered.

2. Apply a thin coat of craft glue to plastic spiders (available at Halloween stores); sprinkle with black glitter. Hot-glue spiders onto wreath.

3. Hang wreath using monofilament.

    Help! The reindeer moss does not stick on the styrofoam wreath using my glue gun!
