Moss Graffiti


Again, something cool I found on Pintrest! (Also, I've been getting emails asking if I sell the DIY's that I show on this blog. Comment your ideas below because I'm not sure if I should...) Okay so this entry is about how to make moss art, which isn't necessarily a DIY project, but it IS a project that you can do and it looks really cool. (Also remember to email me at krafty.karina.blog@gmail.com to submit your questions, suggestions, and ideas!)

Here's what you need:
-Moss (estimate about "3 handfuls")
-Water
-Measuring cup
-Blender
-Water-retention gel
-Buttermilk (I also heard you can use Mayo but I'm not sure)
-Timer
-Bucket or bowl
-Paintbrush
-Spray bottle

What you need to do:

First, get out your blender and get it ready for use. Now "crumble" and add in your "3 handfuls" of moss, 3 cups of water, 120 mL of buttermilk, and 2 tsp of your gel. Now put the lid on your blender and pulse for 2-5 minutes (until the gel forms/sets up). Now that this is done, pour your mixture into a bucket or bowl and go outside to the wooden or concrete wall that you want the moss to grow on. Now take out your paintbrush and dip it into the mixture, making sure to keep it neat when you paint because the moss will grow. Now just remember to mist your moss painting once every week and watch it grow!

I got this idea from Pinterest and did some research on how to create this. I am not the first person to think of this so I have no ownership. I simply made this blog to help others with their DIY projects!
