After Symone’s Mommy and Symone bought my daughter a bouquet of flowers in honor of her first high school dance and we enjoyed those gorgeous blooms for a week, I knew that I needed to incorporate something green and living (or was once living) into my living spaces to break up all of the browns. But I knew that I have never been successful in keeping green plants alive, so I would have to come up with an alternative. And I found it in preserved sheet moss and preserved reindeer moss.
I used some small urns purchased for 50% off from Hobby Lobby, a Styrofoam ball and a Styrofoam cone and hot glued the moss onto the foam using my LOW temp glue gun. That reminds me – do you know that there are low temp glue guns? I’ve read so much about burned fingertips in blog land that I don’t think a lot of people may be aware of them. I works the exact same way as hot temp glue guns, but it just doesn’t get as hot. I find them to be perfect for projects like this that involves using your fingers to press lightweight items into the glue.
I used the sheet moss on the cone topiary and the reindeer moss on the ball topiary. I loved how the came out and adds just a bit of green to my living spaces. I’ll definitely be making more of these to place all around my house.
