Glitter Name Sign...because everyone needs one!

I love glitter, it's unhealthy and abnormal but there it is. I love it. I try to put it in as many places as I can... but none more than Maila's room. Holy sparkle. That room is going to shine!

I made this little gem to hang over her crib...

What girl doesn't want some sparkle??

Here's what you need:

-Peice of Wood and something to hang it on the wall with
(I had this sign a friend gave me for Max's baby shower, but it doesn't fit anywhere in my decorations anymore...)
-Modge Podge
-Crafty Cardboard Letters (from Joann's or Hobby Lobby)
-Foam Brush

First thing I did was cover my wood sign with fabric... it was simple, just wrap the fabric around the sign and staple to the back.



Next thing I did was the letters...

I did these one side at a time... apply your modge podge, and then cover with glitter. So simple.

Do that for every side of the letters. You may need to put more than one layer of modge podge and glitter on to make sure everything is covered.

After that, lay all your letters out to dry... leave them overnight. (that's the worst part!!)

I laid mine on upside down paper plates...

After everything is dried, attach them to the fabric. I QUICKLY applied hot glue to the back of the letters and then put them on my sign. It was simple, easy, and the hot glue is holding up fabulously!



..now go vacuum up all the glitter that's everywhere...
