DIY project: Mossy monograms!

:

Good afternoon! I’m back in California after my trip home….and boy, was it an efficient trip! We got a lot of planning and projects done, because this week was the last that I’ll be home before I’m there for the wedding! We’re at 83 days right now, so the next flurry phase is the invitations. I’m designing my own…once they’re printed, I’ll get a post up about that!

This project was one of my favorites from my trip home. We’ll be using the monogram to decorate the front door of the venue:

It was pretty simple to make and took literally about 15 minutes. Here’s what you’ll need:

-1 spool of 2″ ribbon, color of your choice, about $3-4
-3 craft letters, purchased from Michael’s or other craft store. We picked two white, and the one we used for the middle “B” was a little bit larger and flatter to emphasize the last name. Cost per letter is $1-2
-one bag of flat sheet moss, about $5. I used about 2/3 of a bag for one letter.
-hot glue gun

Step one: lay letter(s) down that you’ll be covering in moss. You can choose to cover them all in moss, or just one!

Step two: hot glue the moss to the wood letter.

Step three: add loose moss in patches on top of the glued moss. It will make it look a little more woodsy and natural!

Then, cut the ribbon into thirds and tie to the letters. Hang from desired location!

This was an easy way for us to incorporate our monogram into our wedding venue, and it also serves as an easy, do-ahead decoration!

Enjoy the rest of your week, lovelies!
