We've had a few chilly mornings lately and it has given me the motivation I needed to add a little fall decor to our home. It all started with this letter I found at Michaels. They are $6.99 and you can also use the 40% off coupon, so not a bad deal at all. I really wanted to turn it into a front door "wreath" by covering it with moss and a few fall embellishments. It was really simple to do and took hardly any time at all.
First I painted the edges green since the moss wouldn't be covering them.
Then I used a roll of moss to cover the front of the letter. You could really use any type of moss, but the roll worked really well and gave it a nice uniform look. I found the roll at Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off coupon. One roll is plenty to do two "wreaths" so you could do this with a friend or make a second one for a gift.
I laid the letter face down and traced the outline with a marker.
Then I cut off the excess.
Next I liberally applied glue to the backside of the moss. I used this glue and it worked great.
Then I laid the letter on top of the moss and allowed it to thoroughly dry.
You could just leave it like this or even add a nice bow, but I added a few embellishments to make it feel more fall-ish. The leaves are from the Dollar Tree and I can't remember where I found I found the acorns. I just happened to find them in my fall stash.
Our porch is pretty well covered so I think it will hold up pretty well, but if yours isn't you could definitely use it inside too!
