Making Mossy Terra Cotta Pots For Wedding

I am doing the flowers for a wedding on May 17th. My sister-in-law (to be) wants mossy terra cotta pots. What is the best way to do this faux or not, in a month? Help! Thanks.

Smear some plain yoghurt over them and leave them outside in a damp area. The moss forms as if by magic!

With your time schedule spray paint the pots with mossy colored craft paint and then use spray glue or paint with tacky glue and roll in loose moss. I've covered green oasis blocks this way and it works great. You can buy thin sheets of plastic covered with moss, too, that you could wrap around pot, but the other way is a lot easier.

I watched a garden show and they said to jump start a "mossy" pot to take grass or any green leaves and rub them well over the pots. They will start growing moss from rubbing the liguid in the greenery on them.
