Blooming Moss Monogram Letters

Hey there! How are you friend?

I hope you have had a wonderful week, and are perhaps gearing up to get your DIY on this weekend.
No matter how crazy (or wonderful) the spring weather may be where you are, we can all use a little
something pretty in our day.  I love flowers, real ones are of course are my favorite.  But I will take a
great faux version too.  I know some folks have an aversion to them, but I happen to like how easy &
low maintenance they are (I know, just dusting, but still!)

And, the flowers can be changed with the seasons, or other elements used too.  Or keep them super
mossy & fab and just use the moss and grass cord.  Oh your wheels are spinning now aren’t they?
That’s exactly what I thought when I picked up a stack of letters on sale at JoAnn’s, just waiting for
a little hot glue and inspiration to strike!
Here is what I used to make these Blooming Moss Monogram Letters:
  • Paper mache letters
  • Sharp knife or straight edge to cut letter front
  • Dried crafting moss (I found mine at Dollar Tree and use 1 1/2 bags)
  • Grass textured rope ($5.99 for 72 inches at JoAnn’s)
  • Variety of flowers to use in colors of your choice
  • Hot glue
  • Wire snips













I began by dragging out my giant bin full of floral goodies and dug thru it to find a few blooms to use.
Next, I used a sharp knife to remove the front only of each letter, and working one section at a time,
added hot glue inside the letter, then pressed in a section of moss to secure.  Once every letter was
done, I cut 1 yard pieces of the grass rope and wound the rope around each letter, securing the ends
on the back with hot glue.  I used a wire snip (you can also use the base of needle-nosed pliers  if they
have a wire cutter on them) to cut the stem down on each flower, securing in place with hot glue.



















Voila! All done and ready to set them on a shelf, or hang on a wall for some pretty pizzaz anywhere.
A small piece of string tied in a loop and glued to the back of each letter works well for a hanger.
Wouldn’t these be perfect for a wedding gift, Mother’s Day gift or for a handmade housewarming
present? So many ideas, I may need to get more letters!

Thank you as always for reading friends, I have missed you the past couple weeks as I have been spending
a lot of time with family & sorting thru how we feel about losing our Mom earlier this month.  I have ok
days, and days that are not-so-ok.  But I am just letting myself feel what I feel and do the things that make
me feel like life is normal.  Working and writing make me feel good, and while I miss my Mom terribly, I
know she is whole again, has no health issues & is with the the One who heals & restores.
I have faith that our broken hearts are healing, and I have been so comforted and blessed by the many
friends who have shared their hearts & lifted us up in prayer.
We are ok, we are taking every day as it comes.  That’s all we really have anyways right?
Thank you again for your messages, thoughts and support.  You are a blessing to me!
