How to Make a Beautiful DIY Moss Art with Free Printables

| |

Update your walls with this easy DIY Moss Art using free printables with floral patterns and faux moss for beautiful Spring decor.

Spring is finally here and I’m thrilled to share this bright and cheery DIY Spring Moss Art with you today.

I know living moss walls and decor are all the rage and I even made a faux living art with succulents and air plants for the look without the price tag. But I decided to think more outside the box for this DIY art with supplies I already had.

(I mean how many of us have a picture frame without the glass because it broke, or floral craft supplies waiting to be used?)

So whip up this Spring craft in no time with an empty frame, preserved moss, and a free printable.

Here’s what you need for this moss wall art DIY:

  • An empty 8×10 picture frame. If you have one missing glass, that’s perfect!!
  • Black cardstock or cardboard
  • Preserved moss or dried moss for crafts from your local craft or dollar store. It will come loose or in a sheet. Either is fine for this project.
  • Craft glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Your choice of a floral print (see below!)

Steps for Moss Wall Art DIY

Make a DIY Moss Art with Floral Print: 

  1. Use the glass or back of the frame as a template or measure 8 by 10 inches with a ruler on a piece of black cardstock. Cut to size.
  2. Place your ruler on the 8×10 piece diagonally, trace it, and cut it in half.
  3. Use craft or Elmer’s glue to secure the faux moss in place.  Squeeze some out and spread out evenly with a brush.
  4. Press the moss firmly in place.  You may need to add a little more glue in some spots.  I was surprised to see how well it holds together! Trim edges where moss overhands to get a neat “moss” triangle.
  5. Print out one of the printables below. Photopaper or cardstock works best and make sure to select 8×10 for the picture size or cut the printable to size after printing.
  6. Glue the moss triangle to the blank part. Let dry.
  7. Frame and enjoy!

It was fun to try different floral patterns with the moss.  If you wanted something even more modern, try black and white stripes.  My favorites are roses and daisies.  The colors were just right to brighten my day and looked perfect with my DIY washi easter eggs.
