I’m starting to get worried for my #1 boo, Burlap, because lately moss has been the word in my house (anyone start sing “Grease is the Word” ? No? Weirdos).
I am really digging these moss sheets lately because they lend themselves to some easy and fast crafts especially these easy moss covered topiaries
This is a really easy one, so the directions are a little sparse, but seriously, you really don’t need directions…
What You’ll Need:
1. A package of moss. Like this.
2. Styrofoam cones
3. Green Paint and Paint of your choice for your flowerpot.
4. A Flowerpot or two
5. burlap scraps and some twine.
6. Raffia (optional).
7. Hot glue and a hot glue gun.
8. A stick (I got my sticks from my hedges).
9. Loose Moss
What You’ll Do:
1. Paint the bottom of the cones (just in case someone gets up close and personal with your topiary, it will look green from the bottom..)
2. Paint your flowerpot. I used a sample paint from Valspar. I love those sample paints.
3. Plug in your glue gun, and start gluing the sheets of moss to the styrofoam.
4. Place a piece of styrofoam or floral foam in the flower pot, jam a stick in the bottom of the cone and into the foam in the pot, cover the top with loose moss, and voila!
5. Wrap a piece of burlap around the flowerpot, and tie it with twine, wrap some raffia around the “tree” (if you would like) and you are doneso!
Not bad for a quick craft, huh?
