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.
