I think I am totally obsessed with glitter lately. What is going on? Is anyone else feeling the glitter bug biting? I got this set of wooden letters from Crafty Wood Cutouts and I know I needed to cover them in glitter to make myself some sparkly glitter letters for Christmas. My husband, mom and brother all thought I was a little nutty to use blue and silver instead of the classic red and green, but I LOVE how it turned out!
Love, love, love. It’s so sparkly!
I don’t know-what would you do if you had these letters? Would you have gone more traditional? Red and green could be really pretty too!
Crafty Wood Cutouts is a local store near me, but they also have an online store, so even if you don’t live near me, you can shop there. And they don’t have just the word Believe to work with. They have a whole line of different Christmas sets as well as other holidays. Check them out.
Or, if you prefer, you could get paper mache or any wooden letters from your local craft store.
Glitter Letters for Christmas:
Supplies Needed for this Project:
Acrylic paint in desired colors
Glitter in matching colors
Glue on jewels
All I did was paint each letter with several coats of paint. Then, when it was well covered I gave it one last heavy coat of paint and sprinkled it with glitter. On the tree I also used tacky glue to stick on some sparkly little blue jewels.
