Sometimes the simplest projects end up being my absolute favorite. I wanted a little craft to add to my rustic ladder that hangs on the living room wall, so I thought of a word that’s reminiscent of summer – BLOOM. It’s so stinkin’ easy y’all. Let me show you how to make this BLOOM Moss Decor.
I usually do my crafts inside, in my craft room, but something drew me outdoors for this one. Maybe it was the weather, or the fact that I was working with moss which reminded me of grass. Whatever it was, I’m so glad I did it because I enjoyed the quietness of the afternoon and I’m in love with my pictures for this project, too!
Ok, let’s get crafty!
Here’s what you need to make these yourself:
- Papier mache letters
- SuperMoss peel-and-stick moss sheets
- Faux flowers
First, open up a sheet of moss and flip it upside down. Lay the letters onto the sheet and cut around them – not perfectly, though. You need excess to fold over the edges.
The first sheet was almost enough to cover the front and sides of each letter. I didn’t worry about the backside since I won’t see it.
To cover the bare spots, just use the second sheet of peel-and-stick moss, then cut strips until you cover all the exposed papier mache.
And BAM! In the five years I’ve been blogging, I think this might be my most favorite picture ever. It just makes me happy!
So there you have it – my BLOOM Moss Decor. Oh, and if you want to see it on my rustic ladder, here you go:
What word would you make with the moss decor? This peel-and-stick stuff is magic, and I might have to find some other stuff to cover with moss!

Oh my goodness, Kirsten! I LOVE this project so much! I also love that the moss is peel and stick. Sure beats trying to glue on moss. 🙂
Thanks so much! Yes – I knew I wanted to use moss for something cute, but the thought of gluing it made me ill. LOL! I was excited to find the peel-and-stick kind at Hobby Lobby!
I remember trying to work with moss years ago and getting totally frustrated – peel and stick is brilliant! Great project.
I love these! I wouldn’t have guessed they were so easy to make. Your photographs are stunning! The moss letters set on the grass is so beautiful. I really need to improve my photography skills 🙂 Emma
I love this! Not sure where I could put mine tho. I don’t have a rustic ladder. Hmmm…any suggestions? Maybe use the word create and place on the wall in my craft room? Sounds good to me.

Hey Cyndee! I bet it would be super cute on the wall of your craft room! You can add ribbon to each letter and hang them, too. I’d love to see what you do with them! Share a pic when you do! 🙂
Thank you Emma! I was so thrilled with the picture in the grass 🙂 I’m going to be more open to stepping outside of my craft room more often!
