Moss Monogram for $1 {Tutorial}

I'm working on a project and wanted to incorporate a monogram "C" for our last name. I love monograms and I super love moss monograms. Anything with an earthy edge and I am sold!
 Here is what I whipped up with materials I had on hand.

Supplies
Scrap Cardboard
Printout of Letter in Desired Size
Craft Moss
Scissors
Elmer's Glue
Hot Glue Gun
I found the moss at Dollar Tree. They tend to have a small variety in the floral and/or seasonal section. Thicker cardboard is better, but be sure you can cut through it. I wanted a somewhat smaller letter, but if you have a letter with lots of details bigger will be easier to cut out.

1. Cut out the letter and glue it to the cardboard with the Elmer's glue. Don't worry about perfection.
2.Cutout the cardboard letter.
3. Glue the cardboard letter onto the cardboard again and cut out. I did this to make it a little thicker and sturdier. You could skip this step if you are using sturdy stuff already, or if you have thin cardboard repeat it several times.

4. Working in sections, hot glue the moss to the cardboard letter. I glued onto the front area first then covered the edges. 
5. After covering the entire front and sides go back with scissors and clean up the wild moss. This really helps sculpt it into the desired shape. Try to trim out as many hot glue "threads" as you can too (as you can see below I forgot this step. oops).

Tada!

This took me about 20 minutes to complete, and that is including child-related distractions.
Super easy and super cheap since all I had to buy was the moss!

I'll post soon with my completed project that incorporates my monogram. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
