I'm back from the beach (it was WONDERFUL! Instagram and camera phone pictures had major problems so I apologize for the lack of photo updates, but I'm working on it!) and I know I haven't posted too much of my own crafty work recently and so I thought I'd share this one that I made, took awhile to write up, and then took some sweet time in publishing... so at last, enjoy the mossy monogram tutorial!
You all know I love monograms (like any good Southern girl) and last year I loved the moss-covered letters and decor so I made my own... and then I lost most of the pictures for the actual tutorial (well, I can't find them and I am actually usually pretty organized with my pictures so I think they might have gone to the big memory card in the sky) so I hadn't shared it. But I figured it was pretty simple to make and you didn't really need the pictures I lost... so here's how I made this moss covered monogram!
Loose moss or moss covered sheets from the craft store
Ribbon (+ scissors + lighter to seal the ends of it)
First, I grabbed some scrapbook paper that was textured or supposed to display texture and put it into my 8 x 10" frame from the Dollar Store.
Then, I got my wood letter and hot glued moss all over it. It got pretty messy so I recommend covering your workspace with more than a plastic bag. And the moss sheets are probably much easier to work with than the loose moss I had here. But eventually I got the whole thing covered...
