DIY Moss Ball




Something about the pop of green just says SPRING!
The brown colorless winter is gone & new life appears when things start turning green.
Seems like we've been anticipating it a little extra this year, so tomorrow,
the first day of SPRING, can't get here soon enough.

In anticipation, I've been springing up the inside of the house!
Birds have appeared here & there, along with some burlap & twine, nests & eggs, tulips, & moss balls.
And that's what I'm going to show you today ... how to make your own moss ball.

I bought a bag of small moss balls last spring & wish I had bought 2 or 3 cause they are just so cute
& can be used anywhere, bringing the perfect pop of color & texture.

I haven't found those little ones again, so I decided to buy a bag a big bag of moss
& cover over a decorative ball that I already had & wasn't using.
It's a very simple DIY project that cost very little & only takes a few minutes.

Here's my large bag of moss ...


and my ball to cover.



I like it in it's natural state & have used it this way for years ... but it's ready for an update.
The only other thing you need for this project is a hot glue gun.


Apply glue directly to the ball & cover with moss, pressing firmly, one section at a time.
And lickity-split, you've got a beautiful green moss ball!



I decided to place mine in a vintage green footed bowl I've had for years, a flea market find.


This little potted pop of color is now brightening up my living room & I just love it!

Super easy DIY, right?
