Moss Covered Monogram Letter
I can’t believe it’s October already! Where has the time gone? It really does seem to speed up faster and faster each year. Excuse me for not introducing myself already. I’m Bethany from the blog Southern Couture here with a fun DIY to help with your fall decorating this year.
One thing that I love is monogrammed letters. They are so much fun to really personalize a space and make it feel like home. I was shopping at Michaels recently and ran upon these canvas wrapped monogram letters on clearance for $2.49. You can’t beat that price and plus they are really nice and durable.
I wanted to use them to personalize my master bathroom and add that special touch. What better way than with our initials? *I recently did a mini-makeover in there if you haven’t seen it yet.
The canvas was just too plain for me though, so I knew I wanted to spruce it up some. Moss has been one of my favorite supplies lately. I love the vibrant green color it adds to a room to give that touch of nature as well without having to have a floral arrangement so I created this moss covered monogram letter.
- Monogram letter- A wooden letter found at craft stores would also work perfect.
- Moss- I found mine at the dollar store for much cheaper than craft stores.
- Mod podge
- Foam brush
- Burlap ribbon or twine
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Start by painting the monogram letter with mod podge using the foam brush. You may also find that hot glue gun works better too.
- Place or sprinkle the moss over the entire letter until it is completely covered. *I recommend doing this over a newspaper to prevent a huge mess and also to reuse any moss that doesn’t stick.
3. Use a hot glue gun to glue each end of a strip of burlap ribbon or twine to the back of the letter if you choose to hang it.
This letter would also be adorable just standing on a dresser beside a stack of books and lamp. I chose to hang mine in my master bathroom from the windows surrounding my garden tub. I love the extra pop of color it gives the space.
I hope you will enjoy a simple DIY that is still gorgeous and only cost a few dollars to make.
