Here’s How To Make Moss Graffiti, The Coolest DIY Project On The Planet

There’s something even more cooler than the normal spray paint street art that you’re typically use to seeing

and it’s known as Moss Graffiti. Unlike most aerosols this stuff is eco-friendly and all it takes is a few household ingredients and some moss!

Check it out below – Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 cups of moss (washed clean of soil)
  • 2 cups buttermilk OR 2 cups of yogurt (should be plain yogurt)
  • 2 cups of water or beer
  • 1/2 tsp of sugar
  • Corn syrup (optional)
  • An old blender that you don’t mind getting dirty
