Spring Moss Frame

Hi! It’s Susan from Oh My! Creative here to share with you my simple Spring Moss Frame! Have you tried working with moss mat? I hadn’t either until earlier this year and I just love it. Definitely a bit messy so be prepared for that, but looks really cool applied to anything! Perfect for a Spring craft!

I am one of those people who likes to reuse things. I have a hard time throwing anything away that I think I might find a new use for or possibly craft something out of it…you should see my basement!! I need to get organized!  Anyway, I was down in the basement cleaning out {a little} and I came upon this St. Patrick’s Day Moss Art Frame I created for my mantle in March. I was still admiring it and thought to myself…I’m sure it wouldn’t take much to change this up a little so I can enjoy it for Spring! Off I went to the craft store… Just a few simple steps and I was enjoying my moss frame again!

The stems on my flower bunch was a little too long so I trimmed them with garden clippers and used floral tape to hold them together. I then took a few strands of raffia and wrapped that overtop of the tape tying the raffia in a bow.

First, I laid the moss mat over the top of the frame and cut it with scissors to fit the inside of the frame.

I decided the best way to attach the moss to the front of the frame was with hot glue. To make it easy to remove (if I wanted to use the frame for something else) I placed masking tape on the glass in all four corners. I then put a dot of hot glue on the tape and pressed the moss mat firmly to the hot glue. In the past, I have been able to remove hot glue from glass, but to make it easy this time, I can peel the masking tape off and the glue with it! Easy!

The nice thing about decorating for spring is that it can carry right over into summer! Stop over and say hello at Oh My! Creative.
