Moss in Brass Containers

Posted by on Jul 8, 2013 in brass, dining room, moss | 15 comments

When I was a little girl and someone asked me what my favorite color was. . .

my answer was ALWAYS the same. . .


I had a beautiful pink room.

Complete with the pink canopy bed from Sears.

 Santa brought it to me when I was 8.

I’ll never forget that Christmas.

We always opened one present on Christmas Eve.

I happened to pick the box that held my new Miss Piggy sheets. . .

Which had me in a quandry most of the night.

What if Santa didn’t bring the new canopy bed I had asked for?

What would I do with those sheets?

But, my fears of having to return those amazing sheets

all dissolved when I walked down the stairs on Christmas morning

and there under the tree was a picture of my new canopy bed!

(Which was in a box in the garage.)

Yet, I digress.

This post is all about green.

Not pink.

If you are looking to give your room a little life.

Then, you must include a little green.

Moss filled containers are the perfect solution to brighten up a space.

Cut a piece of sheet moss to fit the top of your container.

Add a couple of floral pins to the edges to secure the moss.

You can easily cover the pins by pushing the pin into the moss.

Notice how they are slightly rounded.

That is what the Spanish moss did.

It added a bit of height.

They are the perfect addition to this table.

  1. Very pretty love your vignette

  2. I had Miss Piggy sheets and sleeping bag!! I loved her!

  3. Just gorgeous!!!!!!
    Love the planter’s they are in too!
    I love pink – surrounded my twin daughters in it for most of their lives – they now tell me it’s their least favorite color – overkill? lol

  4. You have given me a perfect solution! Our house doesn’t have enough light for a lot of plants but planters filled with moss is the perfect green solution.

  5. These turned out great!! That add a nice pop of green to the room!

  6. These looks fantastic! Just like the ones in the high dollar decor stores, but for a fraction of the cost. I am going to give it a go and let you know how it works out for me. I agree, a pop of green in any room just makes it cozier.

  7. I am a brass nut and I am so happy I saved my pieces when they went out of favor. I love the moss, and I am going to be a copy cat and make one for my house. Love that birdcage lamp too. So fun. You do the best vignettes. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  8. Oh how I wanted a canopy bed when I was small! Instead I got an old antique iron double bed with a vintage chenille spread. I was bummed. I had no appreciation for the eclectic antique barn look that I love nowdays! The bed is long gone, alas….but I still have my pine dresser from the 1800’s. 🙂 I now need to make some moss containers to fancy her up!

  9. That looks so good! I am glad to see that brass is making a return to favor. Love what you have put together- xo Diana

  10. I love these! So simple, but elegant and green, without the houseplant maintenance! Very pretty.

  11. Beautiful very fresh ! I love green 🙂

  12. These are lovely! I may have to copy you 🙂
    xo, Andrea

  13. Pretty! I also use green moss in pots.. along with realistic faux orchids and real dirt. Adds a bit of color, as you said. I hope you’ll drop by to see DD2 MBR Redo (#3 at Met Monday).
