Hey Everyone! I know it’s been a HOT minute since I posted on the blog but I have to tell you LIFE has a crazy was of throwing so much at you at once…I am so excited to show you how to make Moss Covered Pumpkins today. I am always so excited to do this challenge for Michaels.
I wanted to create something a little different and magical. You all know I love color and even though these are more natural pumpkins I am totally in love. I love the thought that there are little creatures living in the moss in their own fairy land. Maybe I created these because subconsciously I want to be one of the creatures, haha! Who’s ready to get started! P.S. I am leaving tomorrow to go to Carmel California to our annual Michaels Makers Summit so I can’t wait to share with you this adventure! Check out what we did LAST year…You will see why I am so excited!
I don’t know about you but I am in LOVE with this beautiful picture of this MOSS! I won’t say what it looks like, haha! If you have never crafted with this Moss you will love it when you get some. It’s so soft and feels like it came strait of a forest.
Michael’s has a wide variety of Pumpkins to choose from so I picked the white ones. I wasn’t sure if some of the pumpkin color would show through the moss so I chose white! Guess what… The Moss fills it up completely! None of the pumpkin color shows!
The first thing you will do is plug in your glue gun then when it’s ready add a few lines starting at the top of the pumpkin and carefully place a small piece of moss on top of the hot glue.
This is what it will start to look like once you start adding your moss. I did choose three different moss colors so I can have three different pumpkins. I wanted them to all look different and boy am I happy I did that!
Look how beautiful! It’s like a cute little secret world… Imagine what’s living in this!
I added a few wax plants in the mix to bring it to life. These would look great on a table top for the Fall holidays.
