Today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make a super easy DIY Moss Frame that you can use to display in your home, give as a gift, or use as wedding reception decor.

I have fallen in love with moss lately and plan to use moss table runners at our wedding reception. There is something so rustic, natural and romantic about moss and I just can’t seem to get enough! Here are some moss decor ideas

DIY Moss Frame

As you can tell, I was instantly inspired by the bottom left moss frame and as soon as I saw it, and I knew I had everything on hand to make my own. Interestingly enough, I found it on Pinterest and it was one of those pins that led no where, don’t you just love those (insert sarcasm)?

Update: I did more digging and finally found the source was Ruffled Blog.

  • Wooden Frame – I used one I bought at Goodwill  a while back, you can use whatever you have on hand but I like the that my frame had a deep indent to place the moss into.
  • Moss – You can use the loose moss or the kind that comes in sheets. I already had a moss runner on hand so I cut a small portion of that into strips
  • Glue – I used tacky glue but you could also use a glue gun
  • Scissors

Step 1:

Remove the glass and backing from your frame.

Step 2:

Cut your moss into strips that will fit along the inside of your frame. I didn’t measure mine out – just guess-timated and then cut off extra when necessary. If you are using loose moss you can skip this step.

I guess-timated the size of the moss strips and then figured out the placement before removing them, adding glue, and then putting them into place.

Step 3:

Once I figured out the placement of my moss strips I drizzled tacky glue all over the inside of the frame and put the moss strips into place. I also added glue to the places where the moss overlapped.

Step 4:

Since I used strips there were some uneven areas that needed to be filled in. I just drizzled a little glue on top of the moss and sprinkled little moss pieces on top to fill in the gaps.

Step 5:

I then cut super thin moss strips and glued them along the inner edge of the frame.

Step 6:

Insert your favorite photo or quote into the frame and enjoy!

I originally wanted to print a quote onto kraft paper and then write over it in a white pen. However, I haven’t been able to find my white pen anywhere and my white out markers are too fat, boooo. So I improvised and ended up printing the quote on vellum paper instead, put some kraft paper behind it, and placed it into my new moss frame! I will probably change it when I use it for our wedding reception, plus I printed in a medium gray and black ink would have made it easier to read. Here it is all finished:
