Grass Chair

I am not sure if I posted this here before but here is a great project to try this spring. I saw it at Torontos' Canada Blooms. The guy covered an old chair in a mixture of shredded newspaper, sphagnum moss, grass seed and a slurry of glue to make it stick.
Kinda cool looking :)

How unique! Are you gonna give it a try?

That is way too cool! A neighbour of mine used to cover rocks in moss using a slurry mixture of yogurt. I've promised myself that I will not take on any 'new' projects this/next year, at least until I have transformed the cast offs littering my yard and garden into 'works of art'. But, I do have an old chair or two that may be crying for a facelift, and no shortage of moss on my side of the world.

This project couldn't take that long .... right?

On the related note I was considering creating a grassy lounging area on my lawn, building up cpmfy sitting shapes and a table with the soil and letting grass and herbs to overgrow it. But I just felt I didn't have enough shape talent for it!
