DIY Fun Thanksgiving Glitter Letters

Glitter makes everything better doesn’t it? 🙂  Now that Halloween is almost here and over, I’ve started doing some Thanksgiving crafts around the house and here’s my first one!

DIY Thanksgiving Glitter Letters First, get some Chipboard letters. We found ours at Michael’s but you can get them at any craft store. You also need some Acrylic Sealer, you can find that here. You also need Mod Podge. You can opt to get the Mod Podge that you apply on using a brush but they also sell spray adhesive Mod Podge which is what I use now. You will also need a foam brush and glitter.

First, lay down some paper and start applying adhesive to letter. Do one letter at a time to avoid the glue from drying before you apply the glitter. I applied the Mod Podge over the whole letter and then I sprinkled the glitter over it.

Do this for all letters. After you apply the glitter let it dry. I let it sit for about an hour or so. Try not to shake off the glitter because you will eventually seal it in.

Once dry, apply the Acrylic Sealer all over the letter and let dry. This is sealing in the glitter so it won’t flake off inside your home. Apply graciously.

Let it dry again for about an hour then check to see if the glitter flakes off easily. If it does, then respray and let dry again.

I found standing at least 2 feet away from the letters while spraying worked well.

The best thing about this project is that it’s super easy, you can spell out ANYTHING you want, get colors to match whatever decor you have and put them anywhere!

Your options are endless! 🙂

    Oh I love this idea! I bought the letters E A T to use on a party buffet and haven’t been able to figure out what to do with them. I have all of these things and pretty sure EAT will look great in glitter. Thanks!

    These are terrific! I had some similar for Christmas but they gave out after many years of use and I didn’t make them myself. Now I can make some for any holiday and probably a lot cheaper that what I paid for them in the store! Great post…I am visiting from the PINcentive hop and followed you all over the place so I’m sure we’ll run into each other again real soon!

    These look great! My only issue is I HATE loose glitter because it gets everywhere. I think what I would try is mixing the glitter straight into the mod podge to make it glitter glue. 🙂

      Jill the other option is to use the spray glitter that’s in the spray paint area. I contemplated using that but I already had the glitter and glue. I sprayed mine a lot with the acrylic so it hasn’t been too bad…
