I lack a green thumb and I’m not embarrassed to admit it. I just didn’t get the know-how or special touch when it comes to gardening. But there are some projects even I can’t possibly mess up. This gorgeous, spring-y living wreath designed by Kim Foren is one of them. It looks complicated, but it’s not! All you need are a few supplies and you’re all set.

How to Make a Living Wreath From HGTV's Design BlogPhoto by Erica Ann Photography and Fine Art

Materials: 3-D wire wreath ring, potting soil, plants with 3-inch roots (succulents, pansies, annuals) and sphagnum moss

Directions: First, soak the potting soil and moss in water. Line the inside of the wreath with moss, then fill with soil. Plant your plants around the wreath. Pat down to secure. Water and lay flat for at least one week. After a week, hang your wreath or use as an eye-catching green centerpiece.

    I will definitely try this project. It would be very nice on the front door. Last week I saw a living wall in the kitchen of a remodeled house On"Love it or List it" but did not get instructions. Can someone help me? I would like to grow herbs.
