i have been on a crazy decorating kick lately.
you'd thinki had a baby on the way with all of this nesting i've been doing.
(did i mention i reorganized our entire house last month? more on that later.)
a couple of weeks ago, i wanted something new to hang above our bed,
but i had a tiny budget to work with. what i realllly wanted was this,
but since it was not going to work with my aforementioned tiny budget,
i decided to make this instead.
i used this tutorial from lovely indeed that i pinned over a year ago.
it is super easy but also super messy. joel popped in while
i was making it and said, "looks like preschool craft time."
haha. in kindergarten, i actually got a bad marking on my report
card for my aversion to using glue because i hated getting my fingers sticky.
it turns out i still hate it. but it was worth the final results.
it was just to pick-me-up our bedroom needed.
WHAT YOU NEED ::
♥ glitter (i used Recollections tinsel glitter in Paradise from Michael's)
♥ printer paper or cardstock (i'd recommend the latter; mine was somewhere in between)
that's it! the only think you will likely have to purchase is glitter.
and the process is super simple. i recommend doing the gluing on an old towel/cloth.
WHAT TO DO ::
♥ print out letters onto the paper of your choosing in the font of your choosing
(i used arial bold in 250 pt).
♥ cut out letters
♥ working with one letter at a time, smear the letters with glue and then douse them
with glitter. don't hold back. you want the entire letter glitter-fied.
♥ let dry & then shake off the excess
♥ hot glue top of letters to string
easy as pie! just be prepared for a sticky, glittery mess :) you will be vacuuming up glitter.
