This is what you will need -
Wood letters (Mine already had a hole in the bottom for what I wanted)
adhesive (I used a spray adhesive, but you could use mod podge or a glue gun)
Moss (I bought a moss mat - sold in the same area as loose moss but this is a bit more expensive so try to purchase using a store coupon)
Place newspapers on your surface because some moss does come loose. I cut out small areas of the moss mat that would fit each letter. I sprayed the 'good' side of the letter and then placed it down on the 'wrong' side of the moss -
I let this set for a little while. Meanwhile, if you didn't prep your sticks - it could be done now. I bought a 1/16" dowel and had Mr. Cardigan cut it into 3 equal pieces. I used a paint pen to color them -
Now, it is time to cut around the wood letters. Just use a regular pair of scissors - do not use a really good one. It trims pretty easy -
I did not have much waste this way. I next had my containers - which were small clay pots - and had small styrofoam balls inside. I was going to use Easter Grass to cover the styrofoam, but found that I needed something heavier. I looked around my stash and found some decorative stones instead -
Using a glue gun - I put a small amount in the hole at the bottom of the wood letter - and quickly placed the dowel in it -
I let them set for a little bit - this was when I was searching for a replacement for the Easter Grass!! Then, put them in the styrofoam ball and finished my EasterScape!!
Holiday decorating is so boring to Lucy - at least after she is finished inspecting all the totes. So, she was deep into her nap. Now, I have to ask you ---- how can she breathe?
