Last week I shared my Spring mantel inspired by Magnolia Market’s crafty Spring idea. To complete the fresh look of the mantel I added a DIY Moss letter.
They are silly easy to make.
And pretty inexpensive.
Most people buy letters to cover. Then you have to buy the moss. And that starts to add up.
Plus you have to find the right size letter, in the font you want…this easy project turns into a goose chase.
I didn’t want to hunt for a pre-made letter. Scale was an important factor in my moss letter. It needed to be big enough to anchor the mantel space.
I hand lettered my J, but you could easily find a font you like online and print to your desired size and trace it. If you need a larger letter, freehand is the way to go.
Moss comes in a variety of ways, but I bought the adhesive sheet kind (affiliate link). Just make sure your sheet is large enough, or has enough to cover a super large letter. The sheet I bought ended up having moss to spare, so I will be making another project with it!
Cut your moss approximately 1/2″ wider than your letter.
Flip and peel off backing.
Beware – if you use the adhesive sheets they are STICKY! Like rat trap sticky.
Gently wrap the outsides around your letter, cutting in the corners and curves where needed so you don’t have large piles of moss.
I used Gorilla Glue to secure a paper clip to the back as a hanger.
You could make all sorts of letters or phrases as fun additions to use anywhere in your home for a fresh Spring touch.
What do you think? Easy enough?
