Moss Letter Tutorial


Have you all seen these lovely items for sale at Pottery Barn? Well, I am loving them and have made 1 similar item. I plan on making more and I hope to decorate my back patio with a large A for Anderson, of course!

This item is sold for $79.00 at Pottery barn-- holy moly-- that is a lot of money! I found a similar way to recreate this item for less than $10.00! Here is how I did it.

First, I bought a wooden letter at Hobby Lobby for $1. That was 50% off that week.

Next, I bought the reusable moss by Super Moss Brand. I traced the letter onto the moss and cut it out. Then, I used a hot glue gun to stick the moss onto the letter.

VIOLA! My very own moss covered letter for 85% less!

This W was used as a centerpiece at a Texas Style Wedding Shower!


  1. What a great idea!! I need to pick up the stuff to make one.

  2. What a great project! You did a fantastic job too on the knock off. Would love to have you join me and my newbie party every Monday.
