How To: Moss Ball Planters

Sheet moss (available at a local nursery), scissors, fine wire (green floral wire -28ga), cotton thread, potting soil and plant trimmings.

Wet soil a bit to roll in a ball- dry soil will crumble.
Wrap cotton thread around soil ball.

Apply pieces of moss to soil and use fine gauge floral wire to secure. Find a good spot to make a hole on top and add your plant trimmings. Shape ball to hug your plant and your done. It looks difficult but as my plant expert friend assured me, easy-peasy.

Inspired by Artemisia.
