Photo Crafts : Photo Flower Pot: Applying Moss

Uploaded by expertvillage on 02.07.2008

Ok. Now, we're going to want to cover this styrofoam up, and we want to make it look
more like a plant. So, what I use is Spanish moss. If you have some on your tree outside
you can go get that, or you can buy it at your local craft store. And I'm just going
to pull some sections of moss out here, and start to separate it. You can just rip it
apart. And then what you're going to do is, you're going to start placing glue on the
top of your styrofoam. You just want to do a zig-zag motion. And pull pieces of your
moss apart and just start sticking in that glue. You can pile them on top of each other.
There's no rule, rhyme or reason. You just want to get the base of the styrofoam covered
up completely with your moss. And you're going to continue that in between your flowers all
the way around the pot until you can't see any of that white styrofoam. You can do more
than one layer. Place dabs of glue in between. As much as you need to get it covered. It's
going to take quite a bit. Again, I'm making a zig-zag motion. And I'm just going to grab
my moss and loosely place it on there. And I'm going to continue this process until it's
completely covered.
