DIY Moss Covered Flower Pot
I love making over terra cotta flower pots. Usually it's with different painting techniques but this time I decided to try moss. I've always loved moss, it reminds me of a fairy garden! This sheet moss is really easy to work with. It has a backing mat that makes it a breeze to cut. Best of all, this DIY flower pot can be made in under 10 minutes!
Supplies
Terra Cotta flower pot
Moss mat
Glue gun
Spray adhesive
