Make a fun and unique summer vignette with a DIY Moss Garden Wall Art.
Hello and welcome to Our Crafty Mom. It’s time for the Dollar Store Divas monthly challenge. This month we are featuring summer home decorating ideas.
I’m so happy it’s finally time to start thinking about warm weather decorating. It has been such a long winter, hasn’t it?
Be sure to read to the end of this post to see the rest of the summer ideas.
For my project, I wanted to create a summer vignette for the bench that sits on my front porch. It’s such a fun space to decorate.

Here is the easy tutorial.
DIY Moss Garden Wall Art Supplies
I wanted this wall art to have a very natural feel using outside elements. So I started with a wood slice plank that has a natural bark edging.
The river rocks were added using a hot glue gun. I wanted it to have a fairy garden feel, so I created a pathway with the rocks.
It’s amazing that this bag of river rocks is only a dollar! I’ve seen them for 5x that amount at craft stores.
Continue adding the rocks along the entire board.
Next up, add the moss to cover the entire board. It’s easier to add glue to the board and put the moss on top. Otherwise, you’ll burn your fingers!
The last time I visited my Dad I checked out all the goodies he had in his yard. If you’ve visited here before, you’ve heard me talk about how he builds chicken coops and has a small farm with lots of chickens.
He always has piles of scrap wood and all kinds of stuff that he finds in his travels. This time around he had a pile of tree bark-not sure why, lol.
I thought about making some bark candle holders so I took a pile. They were the perfect natural accent to this moss garden.
It’s filling in nicely now! There were some lighter colored areas of moss in the package, so I used that along the top of the bark to look like a tree.
To finish it off, I added a couple of pieces of a clay pot that somehow broke in my bag. Don’t you hate when that happens? A faux succulent that I had in my craft stash was added to one of the pots.
This is something that can be hung indoors as well, but I really liked the look of it in a summer vignette. It does remind me of a fairy garden and I’m thinking of picking up some fairy garden accessories to add to it the next time I’m at the dollar store.
To create the vignette I placed a scrap pallet that I cut in half, along with some pansies, and a bark covered planter. The moss garden art definitely sets the tone for this pretty outdoor decor.
It’s a little out of my comfort zone, but it’s fun to experiment and try something new.
