today's post is brought to you by the letter h

I've been looking for a wooden letter to add to our kid's art wall for some time now.  My favorite was the sleek, modern, wooden W that I saw outside of the women's bathroom at our local mall, but no luck in finding out where they got it.  Ever ask a bathroom attendant if they know where the "W" came from? Yeah, well I don't suggest it.

So after I had some leftover moss the other day from crafting some wreaths with a friend,

isn't her finished wreath great?!

I decided who needs super cool, modern wooden letters anyway?  Not me.  I'll just make my own letter thankyouverymuch. 

The "super moss" and the letter came from Hobby Lobby.  I think the moss was $7 and the letter was $3.  It comes in one big sheet so you can use it for multiple projects.

The first thing you'll want to do is lay your letter on the back of the moss, trace around it, and cut it out.  I don't have a photo of this because I forgot to take one.

 I used mod podge to adhere the moss but you could use a hot glue gun or even Elmer's.

 Press the moss onto the letter...

Lay your letter, moss side down, and put something on top of it for a few minutes.

Now that might be one of the quickest (10 minutes) and cheapest ($10) crafts I've done in a while...well except for my kitchen curtains.

It's just leaning up there right now so I can keep my options open if I need to move it.
