I posted a photo on Instagram and since quite a few folks asked for a post on it, I had to recreate it. A blog friend (Hi Erika!!) had also recently posted a photo of a pillow she had sewed and we decided to trade DIY projects. A moss B for a monogrammed R pillow . . . excellent trade in my opinion. So I took this opportunity to recreate my wreath while making her a moss letter. The photos are a little sparse but it's actually a really easy DIY and you should just wing it like I did. Yours will suit your tastes/personality, while this one suits mine.
the supplies I used:
wood or cardboard letter (I'd already painted this one green)
pumpkin & fall leaves
hot glue gun
Start by applying the moss to your letter in small "clumps" with the hot glue gun. You know that saying "a little goes a long way". . . well in this case ignore that and load up on the glue, it will help you in the long run.
Once you've got the whole letter covered in moss (obviously I took my photos before this step was completed) you will cut around the letter with scissors to clean up the edges.
Next I glued the leaves where I wanted them on the wreath and added the pumpkin after that.
I cut the length I needed of the burlap to be able to hang it from the top of my door and hung the letter & the wreath from that (as well as a wreath hook for stability). I made a sad attempt at a burlap bow and then hot glued that to the burlap it was all hanging by.
The most tedious part is covering the letter with moss so other than that this project didn't take me longer than 15 minutes to complete.
Y'all should be learning that I like my projects quick & easy. If it takes me too long or requires too much effort I just can't do it.
and I'm not sure if you've noticed that I'm a little obsessed with my last name/initial . . . no well I guess I should add more of it all. over. my. house.
