Have I told you how much I love moss letters? I feel like moss letters are just happy? Don't you get that vibe? This is a happy craft. This is such an easy project and it makes such a statement. I love, love, love these. I made these moss letters for the wedding I am planning on the Home and Family show on the Hallmark Channel ..... AND guess who helped me? Funny man, Adam Ferrara from "Nurse Jackie"! Scroll down for the tutorial.
What you need:
"Table runner" Moss
Poster board or 18 pt card stock

H & F for "Home and Family"
The "I Do" for the Wedding couple
Ok, to start this project you need cardstock. I used 18 pt cardstock from Home Depot. Any card stock, poster board, or foam core will do. You really just need a semi-thick cardstock. Trace your letters onto the cardstock. It's easiest to print out each letter as big as possible on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper and then trace the font onto your cardstock.
Now roll out your moss ... carefully. This is super messy. You have been warned.
And get your spray glue ready ...
Spray your cardstock letters and stick your moss down. Then cut out around the letter and do the same to the other side. You don't have to do the backside if you want to save moss, but it looks a lot better when both sides are covered in moss. If your moss is pealing in areas use a little hot glue to dab it together.
