Fancy Frugal Life: DIY Moss Monogram Wall Art

Thursday, March 10, 2011

DIY Moss Monogram Wall Art

I've been seeing some great monogram moss art lately in blogland and decided to give it a try!

First I found a fab frame at Goodwill for $3.00 and sprayed it white.

I had a black letter D already that was currently not being used.

Then I bought some moss at Hobby Lobby and went to work. My glue gun litterally blew up mid project (sparks and smoke)! Scary! Ha ha...So I had to finish gluing with E 6000. Guess I need a new glue gun ASAP! :)

My fav detail of this project is this rosette trim I bought at Hob Lob for $2.99.

I think it's pretty, Hubby thinks it looks like an O. Oh well, can't please em all, right?!

I love this. It looks very elegant and definately does not look like an O.

Love it! Although I have the most boring monogram ever...my last name starts with an "O" so projects like these end up looking like wreaths for us. lol
But it would be super cute if I did my dh's first initial and mine in a frame in our bedroom. Hmmmm...the wheels are turning...uh-oh!

Love this project and it looks like a strong "D" to me. I love letters and have lots of them around the house, but nothing with moss. This is a "must try."

At March 16, 2011 at 3:11 PM , Blogger Ashley said...

Adorable and definitely a D, sorry hubby. haha :)

I visit Phoenix often so you will have to tell me where your favorite thrift shop is so I can have a look next time I am there (unless you want to keep it a secret, haha).
