Moss monogram letter: DIY instructions

I have got a slight moss obsession going on right now. Ever since I made this moss covered mannequin…. I just can’t quit. Nothing is safe in my home.

Last week I made this monogram for my front door and I want to give you the quick instructions!

This was a door hanging that I got from Hobby Lobby many moons ago. Look close, you can see how the ring around the “A” is broken in 2 spots. #kids . God bless ’em.

So I decided to covered the whole thing in moss.

I started with a roll of moss from Hobby Lobby.  And I cut some of it into narrow strips.

I personally LOVE the moss rolls. I think they are easier to work with, the moss stays green longer and… it cuts so easy!!!

And I literally hot glued it to the monogram.

Now listen. You know I always share with you my #hotmess moments, right?  You know, the things I wish I had done and the mistakes I made during my project.

Well as I was trying to hot glue the edges of the monogram with moss…. it became incredibly obvious to me that I should have SPRAY PAINTED the monogram GREEN first. For the love…. why didn’t I think of that until it was too late???

So definitely, paint yours green FIRST.

Also, I will warn you that the moss is messy. Really messy. Like “making Mr Magic twitch” kind of messy.  Just giving you a head’s up. All good DIY’s come with a price. And the price of this one is “messiness”.

But isn’t that stinking cute???  I love how fresh and crisp it looks on my front door!  Would love if you pinned the pic!

Also, I did do a Facebook LIVE video that you can watch HERE or below with me mossing things like a maniac. Lol. Be amused.

    Cute moss ideas! I agree about creative people. :)… on your hair…. total cuteness girly. I just this last weekend got the hair products you used in your curly doo video. Sent your video to my hair gal and said watch this as I so want to do this with mine. May need some snips here and there to get a bit more fullness on top I am thinking so wanted her to see it. :O).. Have seen several of your vidoes and enjoyed them all!
