Celebrate Spring with the Beauty of Natural Moss Decor

One of the first signs of spring here, is the bright green moss that is starting to show after a long winter. I really like the look of natural moss decor, and thought it would be perfect to brighten up the house for spring. Here I’m using preserved reindeer moss, and sheet moss, to create two simple projects you can make in no time. They look great for spring, but could be used all year long.
