I have seen these moss covered initials popping up all over the craft blogs and immediately knew exactly the spot I needed one.
They are so easy to make and took me less than twenty minutes! Now that is a craft I like! I found this roll of moss at my Ben Franklin store and it was perfect for the smooth look I was going for.
I laid down one strip and made sure I had enough on the two ends and the sides to wrap around to the back of the letter so that no wood would show through. Then I glued the moss to the letter with my glue gun. Be careful to not burn yourself with the hot glue as the moss may not be as thick in some areas and may come through the moss…not that I would know from experience :)!
Glue the moss onto the sides and the back of the initial too. Then take another strip and do the other side of the letter. Continue this process until the entire letter is covered. You may need to cut diagonally into the corners and edges to get your moss to lay down smoothly.
Then I took some ribbon and glued it onto the back. I also added some staples to ensure the letter would hold.
Then I hung it onto this old window that was salvaged from my Grandpa’s home. The same home he grew up in with his family as a child. I love that I thought to save some windows from his home and it has a lot of sentimental value to me. I also love that it is now hanging in my daughter’s room we just updated with a fresh new coat of paint. This is the same room we also made the twin bed for and the framed stenciled wall decor.
Her room is slowly coming together and I am really happy with the small details. I have a couple more projects from her room coming up here shortly to share with you too!
This is a project ANYONE can do! What are you waiting for?
