Crafty DIY: Moss Covered Frame

Last week I did a post on creating moss covered letters and mentioned that I did another project with the leftover moss...waste-not, want-not people!

So this is what I had when I was done with my moss letters...

I knew I just couldn't throw away all that expensive moss ($8.99 for a sheet), so I found this old clearance frame in a closet & thought, heyyy this will be cute covered in moss!

First I cut the moss in strips after measuring the frame.

Then I just hot-glued the strips on & filled in any seamy or bare spots with the little moss pieces that had scattered themselves all over my table.

It literally took about 5 minutes. I think it would make such a cute gift!

I found a random honeymoon picture of Peter & me (I thought a black and white picture would go well with the moss) & just put it in the frame like normal!

Again, I didn't cover the back because I knew where I was putting it would not expose the back of the frame...

And here it is in its happy home on our built in shelves in the den. Cute!

  1. Love the frame! It looks so green & nature-y :)
    I like how you photographed it with the wooden block & white shelf.
