DIY: Pottery Barn Moss Letters

I grabbed my coffee and Pottery Barn’s March catalog this morning and parked myself on the couch. There they were, right on page 4, Pottery Barn Moss Letters. When we were planing our wedding we wanted it to be full of personal touches and we wanted it to feel different- don’t we all? We couldn’t stop brainstorming ideas, moss letters was one of those ideas. At the end of the day we might have been the only ones to notice, but we still love those letters. It didn’t surprise me that PB was selling moss-covered letters necessarily, it was the price tag, $79.

Pottery Barn's Moss Letters- $79

For $20 and 20 minutes you can easily recreate the same thing. I purchased wood letters at Michael’s and the moss, glue gun and glue sticks from Joanne Fabrics. The next was a bit of trial and error, but super easy in the end.

{Step 1} Lay the moss out (moss side down) and trace the front of the letter (place it backwards on the moss). I traced wider than the letter in order to allow room from wrapping the moss around the back- as I wanted a clean edge.

{Step 2} Using the hot glue gun, glue the moss to the front of the letter and wrap around the side to the back of the letter.

{Step 3} Wait 5 minutes.

{Step 4} Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the back of the letter.

Viola, your very own moss-covered letter(s).

    LOVE them! I just saw another interesting moss thing on PBS yesterday. When you want to grow real moss – just find some near your house, put it in a blender with a bottle of beer, blend, and then pour the mixture where you want the moss to grow.

    Would be great for a brick or stone patio as grout outside.

      How interesting? We will be working on our patio this spring, so we will definitely keep that in mind. Goodness, beer is good for a lot of things.
