Has spring sprung in your neck of the woods? It certainly has here at HGTV headquarters! We’ve got 75-degree or warmer days, and so many April showers, of course. (But that means May flowers will be on the way, right?) Even if you’re still battling your way through winter weather, you can at least give your home some springtime love with one of my favorite seasonal projects. The whimsical greenery of this moss monogram will instantly evoke the feel of spring, even if snow is still melting in your lawn. (I’m talking to you, friends in the Pacific Northwest!)
First, gather all your materials. You’ll need an oversized chipboard letter, hot glue gun (with hot glue sticks), reindeer moss, ribbon to hang, scissors and artificial sprig with buds for embellishment.
Preheat your glue gun. Once it’s hot, start applying glue to the chipboard letter and immediately press moss into glue and hold until it’s cool. Continue this process until the entire letter is covered on the front. Cut ribbon about eight inches long, form a hanging loop and attach to the back of the letter with glue.
You can easily embellish your letter by cutting buds off artificial sprigs and gluing them into the moss. Arrange your embellishments however you choose, either by placing the blooms separately or forming them into clusters for a more natural look. Once your letter is complete, you can hang the letter on your front door in place of a traditional springtime wreath, or sit it on the mantel to bring this fresh feel inside.
