I was over at a friend’s house helping her with a project when I took it upon myself to redecorate her mantel she asked me to help her with her mantelscape.

She had this little vase/urn thing with nothing in it. So I took it home to give it a little makeover and to give her mantel a little more height and texture.

Dollar Store spanish moss + styrofoam ball + a hot glue gun

IMG_0597 I was careful not to burn myself and that moss stuff makes a MESS!


After I had all the moss in place I have her a haircut…

  1. Ahhh, "height" and "texture." Two of my favorite words! I love the look of moss, it's greenery without the required "green thumb." (which I don't have…:))

  2. I to think that I bought my mossy ball. Maybe I can give mine the much needed face lift that it needs.

  3. This looks great! I wouldn't never thought to make those myself.
    BTW, we're having our first retail-sponsored give-away starting today if you're interested.

  4. This is too funny. I was cleaning my barn (full of florals, crafts, xmas) today and saw a box of styrofoam balls and thought "I need to make some moss balls!" Then I check my emails and here's your post. Too much. Thanks for the inspiration (kick in the pants 🙂

  5. What a nice friend you are! Love how it turned out. Thanks so much for linking to me, I appreciate it!
