Moss Covered Initials

I just love the look of these moss covered initials. I have seen several different ways to make them on other blogs.   I decided to make some as Christmas gifts and they turned out really nice.  I  included a tutorial on how I made mine below. Give it a try -- they are really easy.
 I bought the wooden letters  at Hobby Lobby for $1.50.-- on sale.   (Tracy also cut some of the letters from leftover press wood). The moss was also purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I bought the larger bag and used my 40 percent off coupon so it was like $12.00.  It went a LONG way, though. (I covered 5 initials and 6 christmas tree shaped cones with it!)
Flip your letter over so the front side is facing the back of the moss sheet.  Trace around it leaving about an inch all the way around.

Apply hot glue underneath the initial and around edges gluing the moss onto the initial.
(Hope you don't burn yourself as much as I did!)

Add a strip of burlap (or whatever you plan to use as ribbon) and secure it to the back of the initial.  It's that easy.
