Spring is sprung. Well depending on the day. Here in Wisconsin it was spring yesterday, birds chirping 50 degree weather and wonderful. Today it is 30 degrees outside and cold. But still, spring is here. So I am looking for ways to brighten up my house. Give it a fresh new feel for this fresh new (eventual) warmer weather.

I love my fireplace and mantle, and so that was the first place I always look to decorate and change up. I do have a fair amount of Easter decor but I wanted a few new spring things. Not just holiday decor. Being inspired by so much one thing that sticks out to me is greenery in spring. I wanted to use moss. So I thought of a wreath of moss would do the trick. While I was getting my wreath stuff I saw some big letters. I decided to revise my moss wreath and turn it into a moss “B”. For our last name. I got…
*One big letter B
*A bag of moss that rolls out like paper
*and glue gun sticks
First and foremost DO THIS OUTSIDE! The moss got everywhere, I had not planned on doing it outside until I went to take the moss out of the bag and it went all over the floor. Outside we went. I unrolled the moss and set down the B on the moss to trace around it.
|all cut and ready for glue|
I used a hot glue gun for this. I guess you could use regular glue but I would recommend a hot glue gun. I glued it piece by piece to make sure it was all lined up and straight. This was if I needed to I could adjust it without having it all glues down. My husband would glue a portion then I would roll it down and smush it onto the glue. That’s right, smush it into the glue. The very professional, technical term for doing this project.
