DecorBook Classic : Moss Balls, Naturally

November 24, 2019

 

Happy Thanksgiving!  

I'm re-running this article from October 22, 2016 as moss balls continue to be a decorating favorite of mine.  You  can buy them everywhere from the Dollar Stores to IKEA to TJ Maxx to online.  They add depth to any tableau as every room benefits from a bit of green.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  


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.

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.

In our springtime entryway 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, IKEA, Michaels/Joanne's, florist supply stores), here's hoping some moss finds its way into your rooms.

Well, maybe not this much.
