To start your project you need the letter (wood, foam, or thick cardboard), a hot glue gun, a pack of sheet moss, tacks, hammer, and ribbon.
To assemble you simply attach the moss to the letter using the hot glue. Once it is all covered (I covered the sides and a small bit of the back as well), you attach the ribbon to two spots. I used tacks because they were handy, but if you have a wood letter you could screw in hooks at the top or use whatever you have around (maybe even hot glue?) to attach.
Finally, hang up and admire!
I learned one major lesson in this project. I am a big supporter of buying the cheaper option if all is equal, but in this case it wasn't. I was given the choice of $3.99 moss that came in sheets but was still loose versus the $6.99 option that was attached to a netting of some sort and all very uniform. I figured that the $3.99 would be sufficient, which it was, but the moss had different textures and colors so it looks a bit sloppy from the front. This is a situation where I would spring the extra 3 bucks and just go with the next level up.

Now I'm itching to go back outside (and check out my snazzy front door)... More later!
