Moss Covered Initials Tutorial {Monograms}

I’m making these moss covered initials (our first names– C and B) to decorate our ceremony and reception space for our wedding in June. So far I have the C done, so I thought I would share how I made it.

Paper Mache Letter (I used a 23.5″ letter from JoAnn Fabric.)
Spray Paint
Moss Table Runner  (I got mine at Michael’s.)
Hot Glue Gun





These can easily be displayed on an entryway table, mantle, or used as a door decoration.


Here’s the finished product– the letters and mossy ampersand.

    Did you leave the backs of the letters bare, with no moss? I was wondering if that is why you
    spray painted them green.
    Thank you
