My PB Inspired Moss Letter

Oh look at me I finally posted something about crafting.  Like this isn't a craft blog or something.  Can I tell you that I think catalogs can be down right lame with the prices they put on items.  Take for example these adorable moss letters.

From Pottery Barn Catalog

 Really they are quite adorable.  But $79.00, PER LETTER!!!  Get out of here!!!  I had to double check the price.  Who in their mind would PAY that price????  When you can make your own?  Crazy rich people that is who.  (sorry if you bought these) 

I actually had some of this moss cloth lying around my craft area that I got last year for some AMAZING craft that I really don't remember.  Like most of the junk I have in there. 

I bought a letter at the local Hobby Lobby which happened to be on sale.  I think they are always on sale they just want you to think you are getting this fantastic deal when in reality they should just lower the price. 


I painted the sides of my letter a green tea color, so Earthy of me right?  I traced out the letter making sure I did it on the right side.  (yes I have done something like that before). 

Hot glued my moss onto my letter and WOW I made my own.  Without paying $79.00!!!  more like $5.00.  Take that Pottery Barn!!!  With all your cute decor that I will never be able to afford!!! 


Please ignore the ugly curtains that are in the background.  We rent and I still haven't replaced the curtain on the front door from when we move in... uhhh like 3 years ago...
