Spring Moss & Glitter Glass Banner
If you’ve been reading along the last few weeks you know that I’m in love. With moss. Well ok, I’ve always been in love with it….but this Spring it has hit me hard! I just want to cover everything with it. I may need to go to meetings. But not before I share my Spring Moss & Glitter Glass Banner.
I started with a roll of moss (you know it comes on a roll right?), some chipboard pennant shapes, German glitter glass, and chipboard letters. I also used some twine, Mod Podge, and clear spray paint to finish things off.
I started the project by cutting the roll of moss into pennant shapes, using the chipboard pennants as guides. Then I used hot glue to attach the moss to the chipboard pieces. Since the sheet moss is fabric like but heavy I wanted to give it more stability and structure.
For the letters, I used some Mod Podge to add the glitter glass to them. I applied a thin layer to the letters and used a spoon to sprinkle the glitter glass over them. Once they were dry I gave them a shot of clear spray paint to seal the glitter in.
I attached the letters to the moss covered pennant shapes with some hot glue. Then it was time to get it all strung up. I grabbed some twine and attached it to the back of each piece.
I can’t tell you how much I dig the natural and earthy moss paired with the sparkly and shiny glittered letters. This pairing make me so happy. Why? I’m not sure, it’s just so visually appealing to me. I hope you enjoyed my Spring Moss & Glitter Glass Banner as much as I do!!!
