Happy Wednesday everyone! I am still in Washington DC, and headed home later today. Yay! But for now I want to show you how to make a moss monogram, the quick and easy way.
I have had my eye on monograms for our home for a long time. It had to be a certain font and I wanted it to have texture, like moss or jute.
I found the monogram at the 99 cent store. I was so excited to be able to find an “f”. They are usually all out of “Fs” everywhere, so I was really happy. AND, for $1 how could I go wrong, right?
What you will need:
1-monogram, either card stock or wood
1-package preserved sheet moss
hot glue sticks
What I did first was lay the moss sheet on the monogram to ensure that I had enough moss to fill the letter. One package was plenty for my 2 foot monogram.
I carefully hot glued each piece of the moss sheet to the monogram. I pieced it together like you would a puzzle.
Once the moss was secure, I trimmed the moss sheet to the shape of the monogram. Easy, right?
It took a little time and it was VERY messy. That is why I worked on it outside.
I am pleased with how my moss monogram turned out. It is ideal for the gallery wall I have been working on in our living room.
I like how there are pieces and strings of moss kind of scraggily on the monogram. You, of course could make your own scaled perfectly. It is whatever YOU like that makes it perfect for you.
I hope you have learned how to make a moss monogram today. It is easy and not too costly. I think I spent a little less than $5 for mine.
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday filled with your own moss monogram…
