Moss Trees

As I was walking around Pottery Barn a few weeks ago, I was observing the new country farm style and I noticed that moss is a pretty popular thing right now. Well, anything 'natural' like tree bark, wood, nests, moss, etc. I always love to shop and look through magazines for inspiration for new projects that I can do on my own. So...I figured out a way to make these cute little moss trees, and its very simple. I dont have pictures of the steps I made but here's how I did it:
Picked two straight tree branches and cut them the length I wanted
Stuck them in flower arrangement foam that I cut to fit 2 containers (make sure its sturdy)Bought moss from a local craft store and hot glued it to my medium sized stryofoam balls (from Walmart)
When the balls were covered completely with moss I stuck them on the branchs!

And done! Easy right? Anyone can do this!

you make it look/sound easy but I guarantee you I could not do this and have it turn out cute.
