I bought a bunch of reindeer moss from the dollar store today for two reasons. My sister is getting married in June and is obsessed with gnomes so I'm throwing a gnome-themed bridal shower for her in May, where I'll be decorating with the moss. Also, at that bridal shower, I'm going to present her with an elaborate "portable" gnome garden in a pot for their new home that they just purchased. Ill be working on this project over the next 9 months.
For these two reasons, I bought all the moss but am now concerned as to whether the moss will last through to May without molding or discoloring. Will it? I live in SF, so the air is always moist and foggy...the perfect climate for mold and mildew. If the moss will likely go bad, what can I do now to avoid that as much as possible?
Welcome to the boards.!!!! Glad to have you here.
Wish I could help you with the moss problem. If it were me, I would google 'keeping moss alive' and see what you can come up with.
Hope you post pictures when the happy event takes place. Would love to see what you come up with.
Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they're there.
years ago, I gathered reindeer moss to use in natural crafting like wreaths & smaller crafts . It is a tougher, harder moss and other than being careful not to break it, it was pretty hardy. We are in So Illinois and there is a lot of humidity here too but it's pretty hardy so hope this helps a bit. If it's like the reindeer moss here, it is stiff and you can break it into usable pieces , and I found it very nice to work with
