Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.

If you are like me, you've already noticed the beautiful decorating accessories that feature different mosses in their make-up. Not only are the moss accessories attractive, they also can be displayed year round.

Many of the moss-covered crafts I have come across are ones that can be easily duplicated. Whether the type of moss is sphagnum, Spanish, reindeer or excelsior, the crafts made are basically the same for each type and can be used interchangeably.

All of the ideas for using moss in crafts that are included in this article include a nice picture of the craft project, plus the name of the site where you'll find the instructions or tutorial for the project. Just click on the site name and you'll be taken directly to the project directions.

To make the beautiful moss-covered boxes centerpiece shown above, go to Kendall Boggs Fine Arts and Crafts for the tutorial.

1. Moss Covered Letter

One of the most popular moss covered craft projects is the moss covered letter. You can choose to spend about $80. each to purchase the letters, or you can choose to make your own by following the tutorial at Thrifty Decor Chick. Super easy to make and no one will ever guess you made it yourself.

2. Topiary Trees

You won't believe how inexpensive these outstanding topiary trees are to make, until you notice that the cones are shaped using poster board. The instructions for making these topiary trees is found at THE creativity EXCHANGE.

3. Moss Covered Sphere

The French Blue Cottage tutorial shows us how to use wadded up newspaper to make a sphere, if the store is out of Styrofoam balls. I like this idea anyway because the very large Styrofoam balls can be quite spendy.

4. Moss Covered Vases

I like ideas like this one, especially if I need to make a number of decorations for a party or shower. Moss covered vases can be made really inexpensively. Find the instructions for this craft at CRAFTS-FOR-ALL-SEASONS.

Aren't these just the cutest ever little ornaments? The Little Bit Funky site shares their tutorial for making these Baby Jesus ornaments on their site.

15. Moss Covered Reindeer

The instructions at tatertots & jello don't include a reindeer template or pattern, but never fear. It's very easy to find a perfect shape to make a pattern from by searching: (Google “reindeer head shapes” and hit images.)
