If you have a glass front door like mine, you will want to cover the back of the G. I put on my ribbon hanger first, then using tacky glue, I glued a piece of lime green scrapbook paper to the back of the G. When this is done, you can start covering your letter with moss. Again I used Tacky Glue for this part of the project. I was lazy and did not paint the edges of my G...I wanted to get done in a hurry!:) But if I make more of these for gifts, I will paint the edges the same green as the moss. I always learn a lot when I make a craft for the first time. After the moss dries then you can embellish your letter in spring colors or anything that takes your fancy. I had some raffia flowers that I almost used but they just did not quite go with my theme. I will save them or another craft. I saw one on pinterest that had a little nest with eggs inside, glued to the moss. And a plain moss initial will look nice in the middle of a spring wreath. In fact I may give that a go later in the month! This was a fun and easy project...took only one morning to do and I think they would make a sweet hostess gift or a Happy for a friend.
