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!
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! 🙂
