Moss Camouflage

Sometimes you need a pot or vase to look more natural or completely disappear in a design. The easiest way is to cover it with moss or natural growth medium.

Cover the container with moss or growth medium. If you are covering play-dough or papier mache that is sticky you can just press the medium in. You can also colour the dough with food colouring or mix the potting soil into the dough.

Cover the pot with moss or growth medium

Take a handful of growth medium. Wrap it around the pot and secure with copper wire.

Secure the growth medium with copper wire.

Keep adding growth medium and wrapping it with wire until the container is covered.

You use quite a bit of wire to cover the pot. When I need a lot of copper wire I just up-cycle a copper pot scrubber. It really is great wire to tie with and costs almost nothing! See the tutorial below

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
