50 DecorBook Ideas : 17. Moss Balls, Naturally

posted on


Funny how one decorating accessory can play into real life.  One of my first phone calls with P back in 1985:  "What are you doing?" "Making moss balls." "Huh?" "Maybe you ought to come over and see."  Some things just can't be explained.
As you probably know, moss balls are iconic. They provide a naturally green touchstone whether live or preserved.  Best of all, they're easy to make.
Take a look at these rooms and maybe you'll come to the same conclusion that every room should have a touch of moss.
Just a tiny bit of green in a pale room brings in another natural element.
Two iconic decorating ideas - a giant clam shell and moss balls.
An easy "plant" for an urn.
Moss balls can provide a "pot" for a plant.
Moss goes with any decor and any season.  Great with pumpkins, Easter eggs, red Christmas ornaments or simply by themselves.
At our house, moss balls solve two decorating dilemmas - bringing in nature and filling little gaps, especially on the living room mantel.
In our entry way alcove, boss balls from the 99 Cent Store and an old brown leaf covered ball spray painted green.

Since moss balls are easy to make or are readily available almost everywhere (Target, Michaels/Joanne's, florist supply stores), here's hoping some moss finds its way into your rooms.
Well, maybe not this much.
