That is absolutely gorgeous!  And as I live in the hot and humid south, I think I may give this one a try!

Just an FYI re: your comment about misting - as I was browsing through MS's site for more info on this type of wreath, I read this:
"Sheet moss dries out extremely quickly, especially outdoors, so be vigilant about watering, by soaking the wreath (see step 6). Misting or spraying is not recommended because it forces the plant roots to reach for the surface of the wreath."

Interesting.  I guess I should probably listen to Martha.  I just need to find a bucket big enough to soak the whole thing in.

I listen to Martha when it's convenient.   Grin She also mentions giving the wreaths about 6 months to take root before hanging, but I know I don't have that kind of patience!

Personally, I'd just use the bathtub.  Big and easy to rinse clean.

I've always wanted to try this. I've grown succulents indoors through the winter here in the Rockies and then replanted them outdoors. This would be a cool way to do it.

These are fun to make, but they do require a bit of upkeep!  I made a monster wreath for my mother some years back. It was gorgeous for a few weeks, but got leggy quickly. It needs to be pinched back and replanted occasionally. It also needs to be SOAKED every once and a while. Succulents are hardy but they are sharing a very small root area. You can feed them by soaking in a very dilute solution, but make sure the wreath is not bone dry prior to doing so,you will burn the roots.
My mom lived in the desert, so her wreath did require more water than yours will. Good luck. It looks beautiful!
