Did Pottery Barn Knock off My Pretties?

I was flipping through the Pottery Barn catalog when I saw these moss covered monogram letters.

Hold up now Pottery Barn. Pump your breaks! I made one of these over a year ago for my wedding decor.

And mine is better. Exhibit A. Mine doesn't carry an $80.00 price tag. It cost about $10.00 to make. Exhibit B. Mine will last forever. Exhibit C. I'm awesome. Okay, well, maybe that one is a draw, but still, if you are drooling over these, just make them.

I started with one of those gold leaf letters from Hobby Lobby like this ($5.00).

And also a package of reindeer moss.

Just start hot gluing it until the letter is covered and hang with a pretty ribbon.

Followed your link from another blog (love the name of you blog, LOL!!) - and I agree yours is better! So pretty! I may have to try this in the Spring.

I love how you post the prices what your crafts cost! I am in college and on a very tight budget...but I LOVE to craft! Hopefully my craft blog will be up and running soon. Thanks for all of your fun ideas!
