When I couldn't find smaller ones, it dawned on me that I could just make them for both of us. Duh! I went to Hobby Lobby for my supplies which was a bag of foam balls and a package of Instant Green Moss Cloth. I think both items cost around $11 total. That's much cheaper than if I would have actually found some and purchased them pre-made. Beware when opening the moss cloth because it makes a huge mess!! You will find itsy bitsy pieces of moss on your floor for years to come!
I also needed scissors and a hot glue gun with many back up sticks of glue!! I had no idea how much glue I would go through.
I unfolded my moss cloth and laid one foam ball on top of it. I folded the cloth around it to get a good idea of what size square I needed to cut. Now, it of course doesn't lay flat because the ball is round so I had to cut one big piece, then many little pieces to fill in around. I found that long strips worked best. It's really just trial and error. After a couple you will totally have the hang of it.
The moss cloth has a web backing that is sticky so I didn't have to glue every piece down. I only glued when I was overlapping to ensure it wouldn't peel up. I also wanted the pieces to blend in and be flush with the rest.
Here's what they looked like at midnight after about an hour of work. Note to self: start projects earlier in the evening, not at 11 PM! Next, I need to make another batch for myself.
