One of my next projects is helping my good friend Laurie with decorations
for her daufhter's wedding at the end of June. One of the decorations will be the bride and
groom's initials hanging from two huge doors. Since they are covered in
dry sheet moss, they can be made ahead of time (Yeah!!) Step one involved enlarging
the initials(the copiers at Office Max could only take me so far) These puppies
are 18 inches high, which seems gigantic right now.
Next, I cut the letters out of green 1/2 inch thick styrofoam. Then,
I plugged in the old glue gun and started gluing moss to the styrofoam.
I started with the backside first and then moved to the front and sides.
Twelve glue sticks later I was done!
Buying sheet moss in the packages at the craft store is
really expensive. The better way to go is to buy a
whole box from a wholesale floral supply place. (My
thanks to Bobbi for getting this for me) Lots of moss left,
and many more mossy projects to go!
