Creative Containers for your Flower Arrangements - Making moss covered pots
How to cover a pot with natural moss
moss covered pot makes a great base for decorating.
Use a hot glue gun or spray adhesive to
secure sheets of green sheet moss to the outside of pots.
- Spray a generous coat of
adhesive on the sides .
- Then roll the sheet moss around the
container, and cut off the excess.
- Now take several rubber bands and place them over the moss until it dries. Keep your pots in the shade and be sure to mist once in a while.
like the soft, weathered look of moss-covered pots but don’t feel like leaving
the process to the whims of nature, try this trick. Search cool, shady spots for
moss and gather two or three cups. Put equal parts moss and buttermilk in your
blender and mix it up to make a moss milkshake. Paint the moss solution onto any
porous, unglazed masonry pot or planter. Place the pot in a shady spot and keep
it moist by misting once or twice a day. Depending on the temperature and
humidity, you’ll start to see moss growing in a month or two. You don’t have
to wait to add a shade-loving plant to the pot.
