A Moss Heart

February in Texas is our reward for making it through August. 
We have some chilly days and the slim possibility of snow and ice but we also have some gorgeous weather. 
On one such day, I noticed some moss growing in our yard. 
I love moss indoors for the in between winter and spring time of year. 
Welcome to Ten of the 10th. 
Where several bloggers get together and all share ideas under 10 dollars.
Look for the rest of the links listed below.
I want to thank Terrie for hosting this month.

In other parts of the country some of my blogging friends are working to keep warm.
I am warming up the house with touches of spring and some hearts in keeping with February in Texas. 
This project is a few years old but I am sharing it again. It was inspired by Debra at Common Ground
Hobby Lobby had a set of two paper mache´ hearts and some moss. 
The hearts were $2.99. 
The moss was $4.99. 
Since Hobby Lobby has sales regularly be sure to pick these up when they are on sale.
Download the Hobby Lobby app so that you can quickly access their weekly coupon. 

This project is easy but it's a little messy. The moss loves popping around everywhere.  

I painted the surface of the heart with glue. Tacky or Elmers glue works great.  
Lay the moss onto the wet glue. 
Once the surface of the heart was covered with moss, I embellished it with ribbon, rickrack and flowers.   

Since creating this a few years ago, it is a constant in my late winter/early spring vignettes. 

This year some little purple flowers were added. 

I've also used this method to make topiary balls. 

I love the moss on this little fairy cottage from Michael's. 

That is all for now.
Hop on over to visit my other friends.

  2. I am so ready to get our house all decorated for the spring. I don't want to rush the year but the winter drab decor is getting to me.
