DIY Kokedama with Sheet Moss
Amaryllis bulbs bloom some of the most beautiful wintertime flowers! Using hydrating mosses like Sheet Moss and Sphagnum Moss, helps to keep your humidity levels steady during the cooler months! Here’s how to DIY the perfect Sheet Moss Kokedama housing for your flowers ✿
What you need:
- SuperMoss Sheet Moss
- SuperMoss Sphagnum Moss
- SuperMoss Moss Floral Wire
- Bulb Flower of your choice (we used Red Amaryllis)
- Wire cutters or some solid scissors
- A tray and spray bottle for hydrating the Sphagnum
Set some of your Sphagnum Moss in your tray or bowl. Take a small canister or spray bottle to rehydrate your moss. Next, open your bag of Sheet Moss and find the perfect piece of moss to fit fully around your Amaryllis bulb.
Now, this step can get a little tricky! Try to grab the sides of the moss and completely envelop the bulb. Try to use one hand to hold the corners together at the top, leaving the other hand free for the following step!
Once you are satisfied with the structure of your Kokedama, give the floral wire a good clipping. Tuck the end into the moss and squeeze the wrapping nicely to secure it.
To take our presentation one step further, we used tall glass vases to house our Amaryllis Kokedamas. For this, we used Brown Aspen Wood Excelsior, Pine Cones, and artificial holly berries to give the arrangement some holiday flare!
When it is time to “water” your Amaryllis, use a shallow bowl of water and sit the bottom of the Kokedama in it. Let soak for a minute and return the Kokedama back where you had it.
