Today’s project was inspired by this pin from Love of Family and Home. I met Tonya at Haven this summer, but I had read her blog before that. So blessed to call her my friend now! You have to go check out her adorable fall front porch!
When I got the chance to try out Consumer Crafts a few weeks ago, I ordered some other supplies along with the supplies for my Yarn Wreath.
I got 2 packages of moss sheets and a large cardboard monogram. LOVED that this monogram was big – much bigger than the cardboard ones at the craft stores.
This was a really simple project but was VERY messy! The moss I ordered was actually REAL moss so it still had “dirt” on the back. I think you can buy moss sheets that are more synthetic and have more of a netting on the back. This moss worked fine, it was just messy and doesn’t have as much of a uniform look, but has a completely natural look since it is real. If you check Tonya’s post you can see she bought sheet moss from Joann’s– cost around $9.00 but you can use a 40 or 50% coupon to get it under $5.00.
I just tore pieces of moss and hot glued them to the monogram letter wrapping them around the back. Piecing together pieces to fill in gaps as I went.
I actually was able to cover the entire thing – even the back – with one bag of moss. So I have another bag left to do some kind of project in the spring!
I glued some ribbon on the back and my Moss Monogram was finished!
I hung it for now over the chippy window that I have hanging above my $20 painted flea market dresser that is in our hallway upstairs. I added a little fall décor to the dresser for fun too.
I am sure you will be seeing this moss monogram somewhere else in the spring. I love it!
Do you have any monograms in your house? I love this one and would love to create another kind someday too.
