There are two things I’m absolutely crazy about right now, the soon-to-be arrival of spring and the new line of cement decor from Darice! The cement letters are especially easy to use and enjoy in your existing home decor. I thought it would be fun to make an easy DIY spring cement letters project that also serves as a functional bud vase for those newly emerging flowers from your garden (or grocery store!) Bring on spring!
DIY Spring Cement Letters Supplies:
- Darice Cement Letters (S, P, R, N, G)
- Darice 4 x 1 inch Plastic Container
- Self Adhesive Moss Sheet
- Green Paint
- Darice Craft Knife
Step 1. Hold the container up to one of the letters and mark your desired height. Carefully use a craft knife to trim away the top portion. Please take extreme caution with the initial cutting since the surface is quite smooth and the knife may easily slip. Don’t worry, it gets much easier to cut as you go!
Step 2. Since the self-adhesive moss sheet is slightly see-through, I highly suggest painting your tube green before applying. It doesn’t have to be perfectly covered, just enough to make sure none of the tube color (pink, in my example) shows through. Allow to dry completely before moving onto the next step.
Step 3. Use sharp scissors to trim an appropriately sized piece of self-adhesive moss. You might want to make it a little bigger and trim away the excess once it’s applied.
Step 4. Remove the protective backing from the adhesive side and apply to tube. You can see that my moss sheet was a bit to long but I was easily able to trim to size. I’m absolutely in love with self-adhesive moss sheets!
Step 5. And that’s it! Just place the moss letter “i” with other letters and you can spell out the word “spring!”
I absolutely love how these DIY spring cement letters look with a few pink miniature roses! You, of course, can leave the moss “i” empty or fill with any flower of your choosing. Hope you enjoy making this easy project and have a wonderful spring!
