We love finding ways to bring nature indoors and after having seen Moss Art Installations, we knew this was something we wanted to have in our house. After many hours trying to bring together all the elements we needed to make our own, we realized how difficult it was to find the right pieces AND how incredibly expensive all the items were. As a result, we knew that this process needed to be easier and more approachable.
This DIY kit brings together all the elements needed to assemble a moss art project, outside of the glue gun! It provides a great afternoon of fun and looks great when completed!
Please note that each kits contents will vary slightly as we are using a combination of elements from nature and artificial plants. Baskets and containers seen in the sample photos are not included.
Included: In-House Built Frame, moss, foam lifts, artificial plant and tree accessories.
Not Included: Glue Gun. We recommend working with a full size glue gun versus the smaller versions as the glue tends to flow slower in the small guns.
When it comes to care of moss art, it is hands off for the most part. However, there are a few things to keep in mind if you are from a drier climate. Preserved moss tends to do better when the humidity levels are over 35%. If your house is not kept at or above this level, you may want to mist the moss once a month to maintain its form. In these winter months, the moss with firm up and become more brittle if handed when dried out. To know if your house is below 35%, we recommend simply monitoring your piece of art for the first few months to see if the reindeer moss is firming up. If it does, simply give it a bit of a mist one a month to keep it looking fresh! When the humidity returns to over 35%, the moss will become soft again.
Preserved moss is rated to last between 3-5 years. We have found that if you maintain the moister level through the winter months that you are able to have your art last longer. We tend to revisit old pieces after a few years to add a bit of freshly preserved moss to keep the art looking fresh and to bring the outside in. We do not completely scrap the piece of art, rather add to the areas we want to bring more life to!
