Well almost, it is today's tomorrow or it will be yesterday's today, as my youngest would say.
Anyway, the weekend is on its' way!
I was flipping through the new Pottery Barn catalog and found these moss letters.
I love the look of the green moss with the white ribbon, but did you see the price?
Are you kidding me $79.
Sorry PB, but I can make one for less, in fact, I did last year.
Now I am here to tell you, YOU CAN TOO!
This M is a 22" one.
This is my son's M and is 12" tall.
This C is for my oldest son, still waiting to be done.
I made my moss letters using a very thin and light weight wood letter that I had ordered from here. I know you can find these thin letters in various craft stores. The moss I purchased in a large roll from Michael's using my 40% off coupon.
As far as how I "did it" I just laid the letter out and cut the large pieces and glued on with my handy dandy glue gun. I made sure to piece some of the smaller pieces from left overs, once you put the pieces of moss closer together, you never even notice that they are pieced together.
NOTE: This is a messy project, so I worked in the kitchen where I could sweep up the floor when done.
I have hung my letters two different ways;
1) tie ribbon to the letter and hang by bow at other end.
2) glue two pieces of ribbon on and tie in the middle and hang from bow.
What do you think of my PB moss letter knockoff?
Are you going to try one? It has that spring feel we are all longing for.
