Good morning friends! It’s a big week around here…
It’s coming out this spring, published by Ten Speed Press. It’s even available already for pre-order on Amazon. I got my first advance copy last week and I have to tell you that after the hours and weeks and months of work on these projects it’s pretty amazing to see it come to fruition!
I even have one more exciting reveal for you come Friday. Then I can say it was the week of all weeks…
But let’s stay focused here; today I’ve mobilized some of my favourite talented bloggers to take part in an inspiring DIY/decor hop and it’s all about Spring.
I love spring. And I am definitely ready for it.
After being surrounded by frosty branches (indoors, mainly), for the past few months, I’d had enough of winter and I started to dig out my spring decor last week. Then Sunday arrived and I awoke to a full layer of snow on the ground. What?!? Snow!? On the west coast. Seriously?!? We had warm spring-like temps just the week before and then suddenly it’s 9 below?!
I’d even just bought my annual set of spring primulas and the snow and frost came and ruined them all! Eek! I guess that’s what happens when we try to mess with Mother Nature. She has her own plans, right?
But at least we can imagine it’s spring inside, even if the out of doors isn’t looking terribly springy. And today’s project is a great way to add a little spring feel to your home.
This DIY moss letters would look perfect on a wall, on your mantel, on a bookcase, or as part of any spring vignette. In fact, I’m planning to make another one for my spring wreath (which I’ll be sharing that next week). Bonus: they are super quick and easy to make!
I share all the details about how to make these moss letters in my new craft book, along with 34 other DIY decorative wooden letter projects!
They are quick and easy to make and could be used for so many things…
Start with a wooden letter, green craft paint and a brush, some tackle glue, dried craft moss, and a pair of scissors. Start by painting the letter in a green paint colour that blends with your moss.
After that dries, cover the letter with tackle craft glue. Then press the moss onto the letter and hold it until the moss adheres and sticks, being careful not to move it around as it dries.
After you’ve given it time to dry, you can cut the edges to make them nice and straight. Then repeat the process along the sides of the letter (and the back, if you wish it to be covered as well).
I love this moss letter and I think it’s just perfect for a springy bookshelf display or vignette. You’ll find the full picture tutorial for it in my upcoming book, along with 34 other fabulous wooden letter projects! I have another “A” that I’m going to cover with moss for my spring wreath this year – I can’t wait to share that with you next week as part two of the Seasonal Simplicity spring series!
