DIY - Moss Covered Letters

I recently got married in October so my mind was on DIY wedding craft mode for 8 months. I saw several places where I could order moss covered letters but I was not satisfied with paying over $30 per letter. Instead I paid under $30 to create my whole new last name. 


Here is what you will need:

  • flat wooden letters (I got mine at Hobby Lobby 1/2 off for around $2 each) 
  • 1 large bag of loose moss
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • a cup of ice cold water - for when you come in close contact with hot glue :( 

Then all you have to do is cover a small areas at a time with the hot glue. Then get a clump of the moss and press over it. Make sure you get a thick layer that way you do not burn yourself while pressing it down. I also worked over a large bag because the moss can be pretty messy.

Then you have beautiful moss letters for a fraction of the price. I just placed them in a window seal at my wedding. To add something extra you could hang them with ribbon - which would look great for a wedding, party, or even a nursery.
