Flower Pots

Add more life to your floral arrangements or potted plants with a patterned moss update. Here's how: After cutting sheet moss to size, trace a stencil to the sheet moss with chalk, then cut out the pattern with a utility knife. Apply the moss directly to the pot using spray adhesive or hot glue.

Votives

Add an extra layer of texture and color to your candlestick arrangement. Here's how: Cover the wax-collected bottoms of hurricane lamps or votive holders with loose moss.

Serving Tray Centerpiece

Add color and texture to your spring tablescape or coffee table. Here's how: Place a potted plant or flower arrangement in the center of a serving tray, then fill the tray with sheet moss.

Picture Frame

Elevate basic picture frames to a more natural, organic state. Here's how: Cut sheet moss to size, then attach it directly to the picture frame with hot glue.

Birdhouse

Feed the birds in a more inconspicuous manner this spring and summer. Here's how: Cover a metal or wooden birdhouse with a variety of loose moss. This will allow the structure to blend in more seamlessly with outside trees and bushes.

Wreath

Make a spring statement on your front door. Here's how: Cover a foam wreath form with sheet moss, secure it in place with floral pins, then layer twine around it. For an extra natural touch, add a flower made from fabric scraps or burlap.

Mobile

If you're entertaining and want to ground your seating space and add overhead texture, consider a DIY moss mobile. Here's how: Simply cover a wire sculpture with clumps of loose moss, then hold it together with lightweight bundling wire. When arranged in groups, this can add an organic, textural focal point from anywhere at the table.

Letters

Greet your guests with a fun message or monogram. Here's how: Cover wooden craft letters with pieces of loose moss clumped together and attached with hot glue.

Lampshade

Bring a lush, organic touch to a tiny table lamp with spring moss. When paired with a low-wattage light bulb, the effect is dark and moody as the lighting highlights the natural shapes of the moss. Here's how: Cut sheet moss to size, then attach it directly to a basic lampshade with hot glue.

Pennants

Got a special occasion for an earth-loving, eco-minded friend? Create decorative pennants from sheet moss with a mixture of recycled cardboard, glue and twine. Once the occasion has come and gone, the pennants can also be used outside as garden or porch decor.
