So I headed to Michael's for my supplies armed with a 50% off coupon (which you can find here and use til Feb 8). Remember my Michaels--AC Moore--JoAnn's rule: never, ever shop at any of these stores without a coupon. They are always available!
I scraped up some free time and pulled together my supplies.
I really didn't have a plan other than to hot glue the moss to the letter. So I started gluing...
...and 30 minutes later I had my moss covered L!
I must say that it looks better in person. You can't see the white spots of the letter (I guess the flash picked it up). And it is greener (like in the photo above).
I sort of wish I had a different last name that started with a letter like G so that I could hang the letter like Carrie did, but the L just doesn't lend itself to hanging. So, I'll settle for nestling my L on this shelf.
I have another moss project in the works, but my poor little glue gun gave out tonight. So I've had to postpone that project until I can get to the store to replace it. Stay tuned!
Moss: 1 bag Super Moss, $5.99 at Michaels, used 50% off coupon
Letter: wooden, $2.99 at Michaels
Glue Gun & Glue Sticks: from $1 store (although the gun is dead now)
How would you display a moss covered letter? Hang it? Put it on a shelf? Nestle it in a wreath? Let me know!
