The Moss Letters

>> Wednesday, July 29, 2009

The moss monogram letters are definitely a new trend with today's weddings. I think it makes a statement and adds an elegant touch to any wedding. Although I really like the moss, I think I might go a step further and attempt to make my letters using artificial carnations or roses. I can't wait to start on this project, I will post pics as soon as I finish. If you would like to make your own letters here are some GREAT instructions from Mrs. Lemonade of Weddingbee.
Material::
2 large foam sheets (green would be best, I ended up with white and I had to use a lot more moss to make sure no white showed through)
1 hot glue gun with glue sticks
Elmer’s glue
Floral pins (the u shaped ones)
Mono filament (fishing wire, it really doesn’t matter what ‘size’)
2 Heavy poster boards
Pencil, sharpie, scissors, serrated knife
Lots of moss (I used Super Moss from Hobby Lobby [which I believe is sold at craft stores everywhere] since it was 50% off; because so much is needed for complete coverage I would recommend buying in bulk online)
PC with word processor (unless you want to freehand your letters…)
Access to a large scale copy machine
Ribbon to coordinate your wedding palette

I will follow the above instructions to create my letters to look more like the ones below, I plan on using artificial carnations.
