I helped host my cousin’s bridal shower last year. Since she’s outdoorsy and a lil bit crunchy (and a whole lot AWESOME) we decided to go with a rustic, woodland, foresty theme! I wanted to create something special that we could use to decorate at the shower, and then could be used as part of her wedding decor. While shopping for decorations I saw the sheets of moss, and had an idea! I could make moss covered letters!
The craft is actually quite easy and doesn’t take a whole lot of time.
- You will need:
-Wooden or paper mache letters
-Sheets of preserved moss (I used SuperMoss Instant Green Moss Mat and Moss Cloth)
-Tacky or other strong craft glue
-Add-ons like flowers, ribbon, butterflies, etc.
Step 1: Trace your letter on the back of the moss mat
Step 2: Cut along your line
Step 3: Apply glue to the letter, and press moss down. Allow to dry (I only put moss on the front and sides of the letters, but depending on how you’ll use them, you can moss the back as well)
Step 4: Measure and cut strips to fit the edges of the letter
Step 5: Glue and secure moss along the outer edges of the letters
