Hey girls, well I’m sort of back to crafting. I’m so busy shopping and hunting down items for my upcoming vintage jewelry shop that it’s pretty much taken over all my free time, plus the weather is not cooperating with several furniture re-vamps that I have planned.
I’ve seen several moss covered clay pots at several high dollar home decor stores lately, and being frugal (cheap) I was not going to pay the price. So what did I find at the Dollar Tree, yep a roll of 1″ moss on web backing, how awesome is that!
Clay Pot – I had on my potting bench
Nest with eggs – purchased at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 price
Paint – to age the pot
Tea Stained Paper Tag – easy to make
Wire or String – I already had the rusty wire
I sponged dark brown, moss green and white paint to the lip of the clay pot to age it. Just work with the paint until you get the look you are going for. Let this dry before starting to adhere the moss.
Now unroll your moss, because of the shape of the pot I ended up cutting it up a bit to fit on the tilt of the little pot and used a glue gun to glue it down. You might need to fill in some gaps with bits of loose moss.
Now that this is all done you can glue in your nest with plastic speckled eggs.
And for the finishing touch I added a tea stained, bird stamped tag tied on with a rusty wire. I think the total cost of this little craft project for me was only about $4.00 since I had so many of the items already. I think Pottery Barn would be proud, lol.
