Craft tutorial: Make a Moss Monogram For Your Nursery

Materials Needed:

*a chipboard letter (try for at least 12″)
*paint in the color of your choice
*moss – available at most craft stores. Spanish moss comes in sheets, Reindeer moss comes in a bag
*ribbon of your choice
*hot glue gun

Glue Moss to Letter

Preheat hot glue gun. Once hot, apply glue to chipboard letter in small sections. Immediately press moss into hot glue and hold in place until glue cools. Repeat until the entire surface of letter is covered, including sides.Helpful Tip***: Don’t insert moss inside holes for letters like “A” or “R.”

Attach Ribbon

Cut ribbon to height for proper hanging.  Apply hot glue to letter’s back, pressing ribbon into glue until dry. Loop ribbon and glue down the other end. Helpful Tip: For letters that are wide at the top like “M”, cut a longer ribbon and glue the ribbon ends to the top corners of the letter.

Embellish Letter

Want to embellish your monogram further? Cut individual buds off an artificial flower using scissors. Apply hot glue to the bottom of the bud and press into moss. Arrange blossoms individually or cluster them in groups of three for a more natural look.

Want to create your favorite phrase? Simple create multiple moss letters.
