This Endor-inspired door wreath was the welcoming touch for my daughter’s Ewok birthday party, but you could leave off the Star Wars details if you like.

My daughter just turned eight, and while we went through many ideas for her birthday party theme, the one that eventually stuck was Ewoks. (I mean, they do look like teddy bears, who can blame her for liking them?)
When we have home parties I like to put something on the door that sets the theme, as I did last year with the butterfly wreath for her party. So this year I made an Endor-inspired door wreath that took just a few minutes to make and would be cute without the Star Wars embellishments any time.
What You’ll Need
- grapevine wreath (I used the same one I used for my simple fall wreath
- assorted moss (I used a little Spanish moss, some regular green sheet moss, even a little that looks like it should be on the side of a tree)
- small piece of cardboard and Star Wars ephemera (optional)
How to Make an Endor-Inspired Door Wreath
This is so simple you almost don’t need instructions. In fact, I came up with how to do it just by looking at a pin with no associated link on Pinterest.
But if you want to know how to make your own, here’s what I did.
Take pieces of moss and tuck them into the wreath at random. You could also use some floral wire if you need to, but it sticks pretty well just being tucked into the wreath.
I left a little piece with the grapevine showing to look like a tree. I layered the “tree moss” on top, again just sticking it to the other moss.
To give it a Star Ware touch, I made a little cardboard sign that says “Welcome Ewoks” and tucked it into the wreath.
I also made a crocheted Wicket (he’s one of the main Ewoks) with a pattern from Star Wars Crochet. His spear is a long decorative toothpick from Firehouse, where we happened to go for lunch before the party.
I think this Endor-inspired door wreath is adorable, and it’s really cute just with the moss if you wanted to use it after your Ewok party for other purposes.
How would you use a moss-covered wreath? I’d love to hear your ideas!
