Day three of my “crafting with moss” week continues today with a DIY Monogram Tag tutorial. If you read my blog regularly you know that few things make me happier than to create beautiful tablescapes. As I was playing with these moss projects this week, I of course got thinking about incorporating them into a tablescape. It was while playing with that concept, that these moss monogram place cards were born! They came together rather quickly, and easily, practically a must for me because I do not have tons of free time, so if something is too complex, I’ll have to pass. Fortunately these are surprisingly basic but with a charming result.
The supplies you need to make these are:
- Small frames – I found these at Michaels Craft Store, they were plain wood but I painted them for a previous project.
- Card stock
- Sheet moss
- Small wooden letters
- Glue (I used ModPodge) + brush
First, cut out a piece of card stock slightly larger than the opening of your frame. Brush the card stock with glue and attach it to the frame.
Go ahead and brush the remaining exposed card stock with glue and press moss onto paper. Allow to dry. You can use as much or as little moss as you like, I wanted it to be a bit cushy – like a moss pillow – so mine was fairly thick.
While the moss tag is drying brush glue onto the letters and sprinkle with glitter. Once letters are mostly dry (just a few minutes), brush glue onto the back of the letter and press it into the moss. Allow to dry overnight before hanging vertically.
While these are sweet as placecards, I think they are also pretty ornaments to hang as a decoration or even a very fancy gift tag. You could also make a banner out of them by making several and spelling out a word/phrase like “Happy Easter!” I’m curious how you would use these? Any ideas? Please leave a comment below, and stay tuned for my moss-inspired Easter tablescape tomorrow!
Thank you so much for reading and sharing!
