Decorative mossy rocks are a great way to add texture and color to a window or candle display. I am always looking for ways to add color and life to my home decor. This fun and easy project is striking and versatile.
Elmers glue all
Container lid or plate
You can find bags of moss at your local craft store.
Cut up moss into small pieces.
Smaller pieces will stick to the rocks better and will give you a more polished look.
As you pick apart the moss, take out and discard the sticks and straw.
Cut a good amount of moss for the project.
Squeeze out some glue on a container lid or plate.
Spread a layer of glue on one side of the rock with a craft stick.
Put the glue side of the rock into a bowl of cut up moss.
When you remove the rock from bowl it should have a nice thick layer of moss attached to it.
Pat down the moss to secure it to glue. Once you have finished the first side of all the rocks, wait one hour and repeat on other side. Let the second side dry for an additional hour.
Inspect rocks and look for areas that need to be touched up.
Add glue to bare rock and dip it in the moss.
Repeat until all rocks are fully covered with moss.
For tiny spots, add glue directly from the glue bottle.
Let glue dry for 24 hours.
The next day brush off excess moss from rocks. and trim stray pieces of moss with scissors. You may need to touch a few more bare spots the next day.
