We’ve been seeing little hints of spring around here and I can’t help but start to decorate for the warmer temperatures. Around here that means adding lots of greenery and fresh flowers. If you are looking to switch out your winter door decor for a fresher look, here is an easy craft anyone can do. Today, I’m sharing a tutorial for this Moss Monogram Door Sign For Spring.
I tend to lean towards more non-traditional door decor. While I love a good wreath, I also enjoy unconventional decor ( like my Christmas Twig Wreath). And I think this definitely fits into a the more unconventional category. But if this isn’t your type of door decor, try placing it on a mantel or in the kitchen!
– Pack of Wood Shims
– Snow White Americana Acrylic Paint and Paint Brush
– Monogram Stencil
– Hot Glue Gun
Carefully place the shims on top of the two base pieces. Note* shims are not even, they have a slight angle to them, so be cautious of the difference in the thickness. For my first pallet I rotated the sides to create more of a rugged look and with this projects I kept the shims at the same angle to give it a cleaner look.
Allow the glue to dry.
Give the pallet one coat of white acrylic paint. I love working with acrylics because they dry so fast! Perfect for a nap time project :)
Next, I used my Silhouette to cut out my monogram and then traced it onto the pallet.
This was my first time working with Preserved Sheet Moss and it is really easy! I used a pair of basic scissors to cut strips the same width as my monogram. I had it pretty easy since a “W” has very straight lines, which made this project really easy to complete since I didn’t have any corners to work around. The moss was very easy to cut and easy to shape.
I hot glued each strip in place until the entire “W” was filled. And if there were any gaps, I just pulled off a tiny piece of the moss and glued it in place. Moss is very forgiving and everything blends in the end. My kind of project. To top things off, I took some 3″ Burlap Ribbon and stapled it onto the back of the pallet to create a hanger.
So what do you think? Does it scream spring?! I hope so because I’m really ready for it :)
