How To Decorate Pots With Preserved Moss

by Sarah - Craft Invaders

I love crafting with moss and making moss décor. Mossy crafts always remind me of being in woodland or exploring a secret garden. Many mosses are protected here in the UK so am delighted to have found a preserved moss sheet which is perfect to use for crafts.

Moss covered flower pots are really quick and easy to make and are a gorgeous way to display spring flowers. They are perfect for an Easter flower pot decoration and would make a lovely handcrafted gift.

 

What you need to make moss covered pots.

 

How to make a template of a flowerpot.

The easiest way to cover a flowerpot in any material is to make a template. Using a pattern avoids wasting materials and saves lots of trimming. You can see the method demonstrated in the video below.

 

Alternatively, for written instructions and photos on how to make a template of a flowerpot check out our fabric covered flowerpots post.

 

Decorating planters with preserved moss.

Using the adhesive moss sheet is really simple. It cuts easily with craft scissors, and you just peel off the backing and stick it in place. The adhesive is strong and has adhered well to the materials I have tried it on which include ceramics, glass and wood.

We covered one of the pots completely with the craft moss sheet.

For the second we covered the main body of the terracotta pot, leaving the rim exposed. To add some additional embellishment, the edge could be painted with acrylic paint.

Our final pot has a strip of the moss sheet applied to the rim and a cute heart applied to the body giving the planter a pretty, rustic look. The moss heart was left over from our mini succulent planter which is another craft idea using Supermoss sheets.

Naturally beautiful! Does the moss continue to live or does it eventually die off?

It is a totally dry, preserved product Nancy so should stay looking just the same 🙂
