Completion time – 2 hours


  • Sheet, 36" x 12" x 1"
  • (one sheet yields 3 squares);
  • or three 12" x 12" x 1" squares
Other Materials
  • Faux moss sheets, 14" x 14", three


  • Serrated knife
  • Candle stub or paraffin
  • Ruler
  • Dental floss (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Carpenter's level
  • Poster adhesive or small sawtooth hangers and nail
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Optional: Curly willow twigs and raffia or twine


  • 1. If using 12" x 12" x 1" squares, skip to Step 2. Wax
    serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin. Measure and cut
    each foam sheet into three 12" squares. Or, use dental
    floss: stand the sheet on its edge, and hold a 20" length of
    dental floss along the scored line, positioning one hand at
    the bottom of the board and the other at the top; draw the
    dental floss down through the foam sheet along the scored line.
  • 2. Cut 1" square from each corner of each faux moss sheet.
    Apply glue to front and sides of first foam square and press
    moss to glue, folding sides down. Use straight pins to hold
    moss in place until glue sets. Repeat to cover remaining squares.
  • 3. Use level and poster adhesive to secure squares to wall as
    shown, or glue sawtooth hanger to top center back of each
    square and hang with small nails.
  • 4. For added interest, bundle curly willow twigs and hang
    above Mossy Wall Art. Add short length of raffia or twine to
    create illusion that Mossy Wall Art hangs from the bundled twigs.
