I saw these on etsy and was just about to order one, when once again, I thought I'd try to make one myself first. Instead of running out and buying a large "C" from the craft store, I already had a large sheet of foam. Since mine wasn't precut, I did have to draw out my "C" onto the foam myself. After my stencil was drawn, I cut it out. Next, I needed a large roll of sheet moss. I laid my "C" onto it, and traced it. (Both front and back side). Cut it out and with hot glue, attach both the front and back. You will need to cut out a few long strips to cover the sides. Maybe add a bow or flower as an accent to your monogram. They turn out so vibrant and full. Mine is slightly faded, but it's been on my front door for about two years. Shows how well they hold up, and that's in Wisconsin (through all types of weather).
