I’ve loved reading Mel’s blog The Crafty DIY Bride – firstly she’s Australian (and runs her own lovely Etsy shop Paper & Ribbons) and secondly, she is so very talented with her crafting she’s been doing for her upcoming wedding!
I’ve wanted more DIY projects on Polka Dot Bride but haven’t had a moment to create them, so I asked Mel if she’d like to share her DIY projects on Polka Dot Bride and am thrilled to share with you Mel’s DIY Moss Letters (which are really easy but look great!)! Mel is planning to hang the letters over her and her groom’s chairs at their reception. So now it’s over to Mel!
After looking for months for this moss, I found some at a dried flower shop. So, using my glue gun, kaisercraft wooden letters and the moss, I got to work.
What you’ll need:
Wooden Letters (available from Kaisercraft)
Dried moss (available from dried flower stockists and some craft shops)
Wide ribbon to hang
Dust buster to clean up all the bits of moss (trust me, you’ll need it)
What to do:
Working one small section at a time, carefully apply hot glue to the letters and press in small clumps of dried moss.
Once each letter is covered, allow to dry. Brush the letter with your hand to allow the loose clumps to fall free and touch up any blank spots and edges with more glue and moss.
Glue ribbon to the back of each letter to hang and tie a big bow at the top – lovely.
On a side note, I bought 5 packets of 30g moss each and only used a little more than one packet on both these letters. A little goes a long, long way!
Thanks Mel for sharing your gorgeous DIY Moss letters! So looking forward to seeing them “in use”! Mel is sharing another of her lovely DIY projects this afternoon, so check back soon!
