How to Make a Wedding Wish Tree

How to Make a Wedding Wish Tree

Today’s tutorial is an awesome addition to any rustic wedding! We sourced all of our materials at our local Michaels craft store for this project, making this an easy job for brides across the country!  You could use a found tree branch if you have one as opposed to a preserved branch like this one to tie it into the natural surroundings of your wedding venue! We just love the idea of guests writing sweet wishes for the bride and groom and tucking them inside these lovely little envelopes for the bride and groom to open together later and cherish forever as reminders of their wedding day! Its a fun activity for all ages too, so even the youngest guests can participate! The tree itself can become something that stays with the couple through their lives, and could even be reincorporated into family events as a thanksgiving tree!  You could also tuck some of your wedding florals into the moss or adorn the branches to further tie the tree into your rustic wedding theme!

1. Firmly press the tree branch into the foam base from straight down. If you need to hold it snugly in place, use some hot glue to secure it. Make sure it is straight by seeing if it will stand on its own. If you need to make adjustments, push gently until it is straight and then secure the branch with hot glue.

2. Pinch off sections of moss to cover the base. You will want to start at the base on one side and move around the bottom and then up towards the top. To secure the moss in place as you go, cut small sections of moss wire and create little U shaped pins.
