Spring Monograms-Moss Gardens


Monograms are everywhere these days, paper monograms, diecut monograms, painted and hand-lettered monograms, even lighted monograms are showing up in craft and decor, on every kind of project imaginable...I had a flash of a wild idea...to create a moss garden monogram.  They look very fresh, very springy and will make a cool Easter gift for my nieces and nephew. They're teens and tweens so it has to have some "cool" factor.


Making this project was a snap.  I got monogram letters from Micheal's, along with a bag of sphagnum moss from the floral department. 



Then painted them with Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paints from DecoArt...I used pastel colors since it's spring. 


I applied two coats of paint to each monogram.




 And, when they were dry, glued Sphagnum moss to the front of each monogram.


They turned out so cool! I had a pack of lichens too, so I added a few lichens, just for visual interest and texture. 






I really love how these turned out!  They're perfect for spring and let you bring a little nature indoors. 


Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you'll try this project for yourself because it's fun and it looks great in any room!

Happy Easter, 
Ken
