A Moss Covered Cake to Brighten My Kitchen


Hey friends! Welcome to Ten on the 10th for the month of June. 

Sometimes your kitchen counter just needs a little something! This was the case at our house...

This month I'm sharing a project on which I spent $1. I used some things from my stash, purchased aluminum pans at Dollar Tree, and spent about 20 minutes time to complete this. If you've visited here regularly then you know, Poofing the Pillows is not craft central. There are so many amazing crafters out there and I'm not one of them but I do try every now and then. This project was inspired by Debra at Common Ground. Have you seen the beautiful moss covered heart she made awhile back? I loved it so much and have never forgotten about it. 

We have a covered glass cake plate that is usually sitting on one of our counters and because it is clear, it disappears in the space. I kept thinking that there needed to be something pretty inside even when there's no cake. A moss-covered cake was the perfect answer! 


I gathered my supplies and headed outside to use the spray on adhesive.  


I considered using a hot glue gun but quickly found the Aleene's Tacky Spray in the cabinet. How sticky is this? Well honestly, I would love to be able to use it to hold up a summertime strapless bra! Just saying.  It was the perfect choice for this project.


To make this I sprayed the aluminum pan with Aleene's Tacky Spray, covered the pan with sheet moss, then trimmed the edges. The flowers on top came from the pitcher on my kitchen counter. They have been sitting there a little too long and have dried in the pitcher so I just plucked a few off!


I'm in love with this! It's so nice when something you envision works in just a few minutes and for hardly any money. Don't you agree?

Please pop over and visit the other Ten on the 10th participants to see what they are sharing this month.  Honestly, they are so talented and I'm just lucky to hang out with them.

  15. Stacey this is such a unique idea. The fact that it is not real, makes it ideal for displaying all the time. Such a fun project and perfect to add a bit of color to your kitchen.
