How to Make Moss Covered Letters

 
To make moss covered letter you will need:
- Moss mat
- Letter of your choice (I used paper mache letter)
- Glue
- Scissors
- A few minutes


Place your letter on your moss mat. The front of your letter should face the back of the moss mat.

Cut around the letter. Leave enough edge to cover the sides.



Glue the front of your letter to the moss mat.


Then do the sides, one side at a time.


You can use some moss pieces to cover some areas. Because of texture, the moss pieces will blend together.

If you  would like, you can cover the back of the letter.  I left it uncovered. I will be using it against a mirror or wall so nobody will see the back. ;-)

So here is my DIY project. I paid $2.69 for the paper mache letter and $4.49 for the moss mat (JoAnn).



Just in case you don't know... Pottery Barn has Moss Covered Letters for $79.99 each!

  9. Great work! Amazing how simple and inexpensive it is. I like it over your mirror.

    I think Pottery Barn must be smoking the moss to be charging so much for the moss covered letter. ;)
