DIY Moss Covered Monogram

Simple, Moss Covered monogram letters. Rustic Wedding Decor. via sweetlilyou.comI 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!

  • 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
    -Sharpie marker
    -Add-ons like flowers, ribbon, butterflies, etc.
    What you'll need

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)
