Moss Covered Letter

My friend Sarah and I decided to make one of the moss covered letters we saw on Dear Lillie's blog a while ago.  We tried looking for the sheet moss in the craft stores but couldn't find any, so we ended up ordering some from Lowe's and was able to go and pick it up. 
We traced the letter out on cardboard which we cut from a large box, then hot glued the moss in parts to the form. It is best to leave it a little long on the sides and wrap it around, gluing the excess to the back so it gives it a nice finished look.
Here it is above our television in the family room for now!  I just love it!

Great idea to use cardboard rather than purchases a pre-made letter, Lisa! Gives you the ability to create you own fun font!
