Crafty times….

Check out what I made:

I know this may be biased, but I think this looks AWESOME!  I had seen them on various websites and I found some tutorials.  I used a few different helpful hints from several places and discovered  a few helpful ideas on my own.

I looked everywhere for the large paper mache letters (super hard to find). Joann’s Fabrics had them and if you use a coupon you can get 40% off the $9.99.  The moss that comes in sheets works best and you can find it at Michaels or AC Moore for $12.00…use another coupon to save 40%.  My materials, not including glue or ribbon (which I had in my stash) cost approximately $13.00!  The kicker is I have seen these on Esty for $75 and up.  Pottery Barn is selling smaller letters for $79 each!  I am in shock that someone would pay that much for a moss-covered letter!  I think I should start making these, selling them and put all four of my kids through college!

Any way, thought I would pass along the tip just in case you are feeling crafty and want to make a mossy letter or letters for your house!

here it is hanging on our door

happy Friday and have a great weekend!
