Imagine bringing the beauty of nature indoors, transforming your living space into a tranquil oasis. With the growing popularity of biophilic design, incorporating elements of nature into our homes has become a trend that goes beyond traditional houseplants. One captivating way to embrace this trend is by creating your own DIY moss wall art. In this guide, we'll take you through the steps to craft a stunning moss wall that not only adds a touch of greenery but also brings a sense of calm and connection to the outdoors. Let's explore the enchanting realm of DIY Moss Wall Art and unlock the secrets to cultivating your own indoor oasis.

Materials Needed:

  1. Preserved Moss - various types and colors for texture and visual interest
  2. Picture Frame (you can upcycle an old one) or use a wooden/cork board
  3. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  4. Mossy Mat Peel & Stick (optional)
  5. Black Lichen
  6. Scissors
  7. Picture hanging hardware (if necessary)
  8. Marker (if necessary)

Step 1: Choose your preserved moss. Start by selecting different types and colors of preserved moss to create a visually appealing and dynamic moss wall. You can choose from preserved sheet moss, mood moss, or reindeer moss, depending on your preference. The variety will add depth and interest to your art piece.

Step 2: Prepare the surface of the picture frame/board, make sure it is clean and dry before starting. If you need to cover the picture on the frame you can use our Mossy Mat Peel & Stick as an added layer of moss (optional). The peel-and-stick functionality ensures a hassle-free application.

Step 3: Arrange and Glue. Experiment with different arrangements of the moss on the board until you find a design you love. You can use the marker to draw the design (optional).  Use a hot glue gun to secure the moss in place. Take your time during this step, as the arrangement will determine the final look of your moss wall art.

Step 4: Add texture with Black Lichen to enhance the overall texture of your moss wall art. Cut the Black Lichen into smaller pieces (optional) and glue it on top of the moss to strategically create layers and depth.

Step 5: Secure Loose Ends. Ensure that all moss pieces are securely glued to the picture frame/board. Pay special attention to any loose edges or corners, reinforcing them with additional glue if needed.

Step 6: Hang your Moss Wall Art.

Conclusion: Creating your own moss wall art is a rewarding and environmentally friendly way to bring nature into your home. Not only does it serve as a unique and eye-catching decor piece, but it also promotes a sense of well-being and connection to the outdoors. Get creative with different moss varieties and arrangements, and enjoy the calming presence of your DIY moss wall art in any room of your home.
