Moss Covered Star

I am still on my moss high from making my Moss Birdhouses. I am absolutely loving them and I am chomping at the bit to do some more moss crafting. So I started looking around my house for some more inspiration, things I could cover with moss. I scoped some stars and instantly decided to make a Moss Covered Star.
A long time ago I scored several of these plastic stars at the 99 cent store. I have used them for crafting in various ways. The minute I spotted them in my stash I knew they would be my newest moss covered subject. I painted the star a mossy green to begin with. I didn’t want any rouge colors showing through the moss.
I had more of my moss roll leftover from the birdhouses. So I grabbed it and got started gluing. I simply added hot glue to one point of the star, pressed the moss down, and then cut the excess away once it was dry. I did this to all of the points on the star until it was completely covered.
It was pretty easy to make and I love how it turned out!!! I think it would look great hanging on the wall, maybe in a fun wall gallery. Or propped up on a bookshelf to add a pop of greenery, without the hassle of watering it!!!
Doesn’t it look so cute next to my little birdhouse???
Linking up to these great link parties!!!

  7. That looks fantastic! I would be so thrilled to find those stars at our dollar store! I have to admit that I did not know about fake moss prior to this post. You may have opened up a world of potential crafts for me!
