Here’s another craft that I made for the bride-to-be at her shower. After the vintage garden theme was settled, I knew right away that I had to make a moss covered letter. It was the perfect fit for the theme of the shower and could also serve as home décor for the bride and groom in their new house!
What you need:
- 1/4” plywood—I used leftover from my Berry T Wreath and Moss Shamrock crafts
- Letter on paper (font of your choice)
- Spray Paint- optional
- Moss—I used sheet moss found at any craft store
- Glue Gun
Choose a font for your letter. Again, since we have access to the LCD projectors at school, I used that to trace my letter onto paper. No LCD projector? Print out your letter on two pieces of paper and tape them together. Trace your letter onto your wood.
Note- I was working with a remnant piece of wood, so it was already cut into a square shape that was close to the border of my letter. You don’t want too much excess wood getting in your way as you cut.
Cut out your letter using the jigsaw. Use some sandpaper to smooth out the edges.
As with my other wood crafts, I decided to spray paint my letter in green. The moss won’t cover the sides of the letter and I wanted the wood to match.
Trace your letter onto the back of your moss sheet and carefully cut it out.
Using your glue gun, apply your moss. Make sure you have newspaper or toweling down to catch the many pieces of shedding moss.
Tie burlap or whatever ribbon you choose around the letter and it’s ready to hang. I think this looked just awesome on a mirror at the bridal shower.
This is a great craft for yourself or even as a gift!
