How do you stop a straw wreath from shedding?
That’s when I got out the brown and black flower tape. I placed this around the wreath every few inches and that significantly stopped the “ straw shedding.” I bet you could dip this entire wreath in a water/glue mixture or spray with some clear spray paint to help hold it together as well.
How do you attach moss to styrofoam?
White craft glue or a hot glue gun. Apply the white glue to both the styrofoam and the moss. Hot glue goes on the moss — you’ll melt the styrofoam if you apply it directly.
