Hello This Silly Girls Life readers!! This is Shonee again from Hawthorne and Main! Hope you all had a fun Valentines Day! With spring right around the corner I thought it would be fun to share with you this DIY Moss Cover Frame!

There is something about green that makes me smile.  It reminds me of new life and a fresh start. The weather hasn’t quite warmed up enough for me to get my flowers planted outside.  This green moss has given my living space a little extra boost of happiness to get me through the rest of the winter.
Here are the supplies you will need:

-Picture frame ( try to find one that has a thicker frame)

-Craft glue

-Moss (got mine at the dollar store. I used 1.5 packages for this 8×10 frame)

First,  remove any paper backing and glass from your picture frame.

I found it best to work in small areas. Only adding glue to one side of the frame at a time will prevent a sticky moss mess!!

Start by smearing glue all over one side of the frame, including the side.  You want to add a fairly thick layer.  I would recommend having some newspaper under your work area to catch any drips and to help contain the messy moss.

Once the glue is smeared on, sprinkle the moss over the glue.  After the moss in on pretty thick and the glue is covered, you can start my gently pressing the moss into the glue.  This is to ensure the moss is adhering to the glue well.

Repeat on the other three sides.

Here are a couple tips:

-the moss can be a little bit clumpy.  If it is, shred a little bit of it by tearing it with your fingers.  This will make it easier to sprinkle over the frame too.

– once the entire frame is covered in moss let it dry for a few hours.  After it is dry take it outside and shake it.  This will get off all of the loose moss.
