This week I made the cute knock-off Pottery Barn moss covered letter that was featured in our notebook (circa 03.16.11 entry) and on the blog, “Be Sweet.”  I absolutely love it and want to hit the craft store to get a larger letter to hang on our front door. This one is decorating a pantry door and I hung it in front of a broken frame I found in my basement on an angle. I plan to spray paint the frame black, but happened to be covering letters and marbleizing eggs at the same time. Who says this mama can’t multitask?

Proving that I can mess up just about any craft, I hot glued my finger to the “C” because the moss was a bit more aerated than I realized.  My husband says I am an “XXTREME HOT GLUE GUNNER.” He also makes an X in front of his face when he says this to me.  I blame the glue gun. Regardless, super cute project that cost $11 to create!

Have you tried anything from our featured notebook entries? We would love to hear what projects you tried and how they worked out for your family!
