Mossy Letter For Spring

Can you believe Daylight Savings is just around the corner?!?!?! I think it's less than two weeks away. Can you believe that? How is your week going? What have you been up to? Lots of question marks! 

I'm happy to share that mine has been a productive one! I took off Monday to get a lot of things done around the house and it really helped! Sometimes I think I would like to just have a STAYcation instead of a vacation. There are always soooo many things on the "to do" list that it seems like a never-ending battle. Having this blog helps me get things done because I hold myself accountable to you, believe it or not!  

I just want to say thank you for reading along if you do. I am excited to see that I have gained many new fans on Facebook, Pinterest and Twittter in the last month. It's just wild to see the numbers increase. I thank anyone who reads along. It means a lot to me. I LOVE reading blogs and seeing what other people are up to and I think the coolest thing about blogging is making friends and seeing how other people do things. hehe!  : )

My next little project was an attempt to bring a little Spring in the house. I have been eyeing objects covered in moss for a while. I thought it would be a lot of fun to cover a letter to hang in our home so the image below is of a letter I covered and hung on a mirror over our mantel. I absolutely LOVE decorating the mirror. For years I didn't even consider decorating the mirror but recently discovered that it is just another blank slate where I can add some wall covering for a subtle piece to draw the eye upward in the room. Otherwise the mirror is quite bland! The letter is a little hard to make out in the picture below, I guess but you get the jist!

I found a cute letter H and using adhesive spray I covered it in moss(purchased at Dollar Tree). Then I used a 3M plastic hanger that looks like brushed nickel to attach it to the mirror. I used a sheer off-white ribbon to hang the letter. I love how it turned out! Have you covered any objects in moss? What types of decorating ideas are you dying to try that you haven't yet tackled?
