pinterest challenge: winter edition

the winter edition of the pinterest challenge, hosted by young house love and bower power, was announced last week and now it’s show and tell time!

(see my past pinterest challenge projects  here and here)

though i have a lengthy to-do list for henry and his nursery, i decided to take a baby break and spring-ify my front door with a moss-covered monogram that i’ve had my eye on.

after a quick trip to joann fabrics (my bff) for supplies i was armed to complete my project.

supplies{moss, cardboard letter, glue gun and lots of glue sticks, ribbon}

the process was simple – select a nice piece of moss, slather an area of the letter with glue and stick the moss on. the moss varied in color and i tried to spread out the colors.

(i purchased three packs of moss – just in case – and used just over a package. i probably could have gotten away with only one, but i preferred using brighter green moss and broke into my second package for more of it. )

the project was easy and took me less than two hours, though i burned off a couple fingerprints and it was quite messy. i found little pieces of moss everywhere. including in my shirt (no picture).

i can’t lie, i was a bit skeptical as it was a bit more ‘fluffy’ than i would like and it reminded me of oscar the grouch fur, but in the end i’m very happy with it.

it’s a great addition to my front door and i love that it’s a unique, personal ‘wreath’.

green’s one of my favorite colors, and i smile when i see the reminder of spring on my door when i come home – just in time for st. patrick’s day!

as always, i enjoyed the pinterest challenge since it ‘forced’ me to get a project done. and while i’m super excited for my little henry and love creating for him, it was nice to switch modes and get something done for the house that would have been on the backburner otherwise. can’t wait till the next challenge!

did you take on the challenge? would love to see what you did!
