Preserved Moss Wall Art

4 Materials
2 Hours

Make a funky piece of wall art that looks like a living moss wall. Use preserved moss from the craft store, balsa wood and a little paint. By attaching the panels with Velcro it is removable and won’t damage the wall.

I have this strange window between my dining room and living room. I decided to transform it onto a art piece with preserved moss. I started by adding strips of double sided Velcro to the window.

I took two pieces of this balsa wood that were 10x20 and painted them green with acrylic paint. Then I applied preserved moss with 527 glue which is similar to E3000. You can also a glue gun.

I started with a base layer of moss. I bought the moss from Michael’s on clearance.

Then I added other colors and glued them on top of the base moss.

Then I removed the adhesive strip from the Velcro and pressed the panels onto it. I used three strips to make sure it is secure in all areas.

The panels are removable and the glass won’t be damaged. The panels are secure and don’t feel like they will fall off. All that’s left to do is the other side of the glass.
