Among (many, many) other things, I came home with these goodies to make a mossy monogram wreath. I've always loved moss wreaths, and a monogram project or two, so this makes the perfect addition to our front door.
(And I realize this project may be a little Christmas-y, but I still love it!)
So here's what I did...
First, I sprayed my letter green, in case any happened to peek through the moss.
Then I fired up the ol' glue gun and started attaching clumps of the moss until it was full.
To attach the ribbon, I glued it in place on the back.
Then I looped it around.
And then once more so it would hang flat.
Then I glue gunned (is that even a term?) it to the top of my door. This project was so easy, and I love that it is a decoration that I can use no matter the season. The black and white gingham (which I actually did not buy to be festive for Halloween) can easily be changed. I can see a thick, red or green satin ribbon for Christmas and a pink grosgrain polka dot one for Valentine's. I love it when I can re-use decorations!
