Another easy MOSS covered DIY- A Cross and Vase


                                                                  Get your glue gun out !

                  I have one last MOSS covered project to share for spring on this GOOD FRIDAY !

                   I am sorry if you are tired of the MOSS,  it seems to be my theme this season.

I found this wood cross at the .99 cent Store.
The moss was from Dollar Tree.
you could cut a cross from cardboard or foam board.
I painted the back green, just to give it a finished look.
I hot glued a POP TOP from a soda can to the back as a hanger.
Next , start to cover with moss.
Trim with scissors. I added a bit of jute across the center.
You may want to add flowers tucked into the jute.
I decided to hang on a mirror, using a piece of wire.
I'm not sure if I like the flowers.
The other idea was to cover a Tin can with MOSS to use as a vase.
Clean can, and remove label.
Run a bead of hot glue over the edge to protect you from the sharp top of the can.
Lay on its' side and cover with MOSS.
Be very careful ! The can will heat up from the glue.
You don't need to put moss on the under side.
The can will not leak !
 Both projects used less than 1/2 of a bag of moss.
I decided to wrap with jute then filled with water and added fresh flowers from my yard.
This makes a pretty spring container.
Okay, no more decorating for SPRING !    I need to clean my house !
I have company coming and I can't wait.
I hope you have a wonderful Easter with family and friends !
