Happy Sunday everyone. Hope you are all enjoying the nice(r) weather now that spring seems to have officially sprung. My tulips are on their way, and I can’t wait to feature them in a post in a couple weeks, but in the meantime, I’ve found another way to bring some green into my home with this easy (and cheap) DIY moss covered monogram.
Here is my finished DIY Moss Covered Monogram (which is a “P” of course). It cost me a whopping $2.00 to make.
This is what my monograms started off looking like. Yep…. two empty cereal boxes.
I knew that I wanted my monogram to be able to stand on its own, so for the letter “P”, this seemed to be the best design I could come up with. Looks like the Nesquik bunny is giving it a thumbs up. Lol.
I repeated the process on the other side of the box, and then, cut up the other box into strips that I used for the sides of my letter.
I then used duct tape to attach the sides of my letter.
To give my letter some added stability, I stuffed it full of crumpled up newspaper.
I then used duct tape to attach the other side to the “P”.
I then painted the whole thing a mossy green colour.
Using white craft glue and a paint brush, I spread the glue around, and then applied the moss to the glue.
Here is the finished moss monogram letter after a minor haircut outside to get rid of the fly-aways.
I added a sticky hook to the back and tied a bow to attach it to my white frame for a fun way to display it.
Since I already had some moss on hand, the only items I needed to buy was the duct tape, and white glue. I love that this cool decor piece cost me next to nothing to make.
This could also be an adorable housewarming or wedding showing gift for the bride to be.
I love the overall look and versatility of this DIY moss covered monogram. The possibilities for moss covered shapes and letter is limitless, and that’s why this has become my new favourite craft. See you next time my friends,

If you are using this in a DRY space, you can use reindeer moss. It stays green unless it gets wet. Love the stuff.

Does the moss stay looking the same/fresh or does it brown/dry? Love the look but I’m curious….
Hi. Thanks so much for your comment 🙂
The moss I used was in a storage closet for over a year, and it looked the same as the moss that you buy in craft stores and dollar stores. So, I doubt it will change colour, since it’s been the same greenish colour for over a year now.

Got it. Thanks. I always wonder about it and never asked. I would hate to make something and have it go bad…
