DIY Spring Moss Art

Hi there friends!  I hope winter is treating you well but I bet you are ready for Spring flowers and May showers, right?  Well, maybe not showers but I’m sure looking forward to sunnier and greener days.  I have a fun DIY for you today.  It’s super easy too.  DIY Spring Moss Art with free printables.  I wanted to use some faux moss I picked up at the dollar store but also wanted it to look a little more modern so I came up with this geometric idea.

Make it: 

Use the glass or back of frame to trace around on the cardstock, cut out. 

Place your ruler on the 8×10 piece diagonally, trace and cut in half.

Craft or elmer’s glue will work fine to hold the moss in place.  Squeeze some out and spread out evenly with a brush.

Press the moss firmly in place.  You may need to add a little more glue in some spots.  Surprisingly, it holds together really well. Trim edges to get a neat “moss” triangle.

Totally fun, right?  I placed mine in the foyer so it’s the first thing you see when you come in. Good bye winter blues!

It was fun to try different floral patterns with the moss.  If you wanted something even more modern, try black and white stripes. My favorite ended up being the roses and daisies.  The colors were just right to brighten my day.
