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!
