I needed something to fill the glass cake dome that is currently in my built-ins, and I didn't want to pay $2-$3 a piece for Mossy balls (OK that just sounds weird, I'm now calling them spheres).
I already had some moss from THIS project and THIS project, but you could pick up a sheet (mine was actually an entire table runner) at Hobby Lobby when they are 50% off or with a coupon from Michaels...it will probably cost you about $5.
Next I cut the moss into lots of pieces. I wanted each one to fit on the spheres without wrinkling up.
I used my hot glue gun to attach the pieces all over the floral foam. It was kind of fun...like putting together a puzzle.
Once all of the pieces are on, you can't even see where any of them match up.
coffee table...more on that in another post.
So my cost breakdown:
6 foam spheres: about $2.50 (hobby lobby at 50% off)
Sheet of moss: already had, but used about 1/4 of it so let's say $1.25 ($5 for total sheet at hobby lobby)
Hot glue: already had
So I spent around $3.75 total for 6 moss spheres. As opposed to $16.50 HERE. Anyone notice that PB calls them spheres too.
I think that's a pretty good deal for an hour spent DIY-ing!
