Lindsay, from Living with Lindsay, will be so proud that I finally got my DIY moss ball done! I had to do mine slightly different than she did because I didn’t look a the tutorial supply list in detail before I purchased. Naughty me.
So, instead of moss sheets I used a bag of moss from the dollar store. Also, for some weird reason I thought she had used T pins not straight pins so I ended up with only about 5 straight pins to use, thanks to my hubby for always pulling them out of his new shirts. And to think I always made fun of him for saving them, not anymore! So in lieu of my lack of pins and moss sheets I ended up just pouring gobs of modge podge onto the styrofoam ball and sticking the moss to it like glue. I secured five places with pins and voila, Moss ball!
Lucky for me, I found this cute little Grecian column looking pot thingy (like my descriptive words?) at D.I. a few weeks before for about a buck. I love it!!
Here it is, my table top transformation. Subtle, yet satisfying! I like the bit of earthiness it brings to the room.
As a side note, isn’t that little antique table great? It was my grandma’s. She passed away the night I got married. Love you Grandma!
