If you cover a letter with moss, does it become a mossagram?

This was my first moss adventure, well at least involving a glue gun, so I invited my friend Amy to get her moss on with me. Since we have the same monogram, it’s extra fun. We bought a couple of those plastic Es from A.C. Moore (also used in my book page monogram project). Here’s what else  you’ll need:

  • A pack of sheet moss
  • glue gun/glue sticks
  • Scissors

Basically you just glue clumps of moss to the letter. Don’t worry if it starts looking less and less like a letter and more like a child’s project. When you cover the letter (or as you go), you take the scissors and trim the moss to define the shape.

To replace the bookpage wreath that I am trying out on the living room window wall, I tied this mossy creation over the mirror in the dining room.

It’s obviously not big enough (which is why I didn’t use it in the living room), but my plan is to get a twig wreath like this…

to hang behind it. I think the layering will look awesome and it will bring some woodsy-ness into the dining area.

But of course once I started mossing, I couldn’t stop here. We had already trashed the dining room, so I came up with other ideas for the moss.

Like covering a glass votive and dressing up one of my outdoor mason jar lanterns. Maybe I’ll get around to doing all 4 one day. What about you guys? Have you gotten crazy with moss lately?

    Love the letter! Just saw some moss at my dollar store and almost bought it… but I wasn’t sure of how it would turn out. I love it! I’m going to make one for my mantle’s mirror. Just the touch I need. Thanks!

    Hi! Reading up on how to do an awesome moss letter and can’t help but notice the beautiful wall behind your mirror. Is that wall paper or did you hand stencil that??? I love and want it : )

      Thanks so much! It’s actually paint- I used the Casablanca stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils and a white pearl craft paint. It was pretty easy and people always ask if it’s wallpaper!
