DIY Moss Covered Letters


This is by far, one of my all time favorite DIY projects that Alexa and I have created! The bright green moss on these cardboard letters stand out beautifully among any color theme. I also love that you can make them say whatever you want! You could cover the letters of your new initials or do as we have done below and spell out a cute saying like “I love you.” This would be an adorable decoration for a guest sign in table or a centerpiece for the reception. You can even use them to decorate your home! Enjoy this fun DIY video hosted by the fun and fabulous Alexa of Events with Alexa!
