I’m wrapping up my “crafting with moss week” today with a simple moss covered pot tutorial. A pot, a little bit of glue, and some moss are all you need to make this charming craft. They truly are easy-peasy! One thing that I really love about these is that they look great even without pretty flowers in them, an especially important factor considering it is February and we keep getting snow in the forecast.
First you need some pots. I have a bunch of terracotta pots stored outside and they are getting a nice bit of green sheen on them, a perfect patina to start this project with. You could paint this on with a watered down green paint if you wanted to.
Grab a brush and “paint” on your glue. I just painted it on the spots where I wanted the moss to be. If you want to cover your entire pot, I recommend working in patches because glue like ModPodge will begin to lose its stickiness pretty quickly. Press the moss “dust” or “crumbs” onto glue immediately and allow to dry.
And there you have a rustic and adorable moss covered pot craft!! It’s a great way to use up some of that frustrated gardening energy during these winter months!
Have you ever covered a pot with moss before? I think these are great for decorating year round so I’m pretty excited to mix them into a few nooks and crannies around my home.
They are cute nestled up against this wrought iron bunny. I didn’t realize how many bunny statues I’ve collected over the years until I started gathering them together for these posts this week. They seem to be multiplying like, well… rabbits!
I hope you feel inspired to give this craft a try. It really is simple. I think they would even make sweet hostess gifts with a little seed packet tucked inside!
Thank you so much for reading & sharing!
