DIY Glitter Garland

Hey Guys!  Hope you are all having a good weekend!  We have been pretty lazy over here and we are soaking it up before the Christmas madness begins.  Today I am sharing with  you my Merry Christmas glitter garland.
Merry Christmas Glitter Garland

I few years ago Pottery Barn had this beautiful glitter garland that I just loved and I thought it looked easy enough to make so I gave it a whirl.  It was easy and I love glitter so it was fun too!
It cost me about $30 to make but because the letters were 2 per pack I actually got 2 garlands, so $15 ea.  The one over at Pottery Barn is $39, on sale now for $31. 
I started with the letters which I picked at Hobby Lobby.  I first sprayed the letters gold just to give them a good base color.  I used the gold paint I had on hand.

Next,  I gathered my supplies.  I only had to buy the letters and the glitter so it was less expensive for me.  I had regular gold glitter on hand and I mixed it with crushed glitter I found at Hobby Lobby.

I  just painted the letters with Mod Podge and then sprinkled on the glitter.  Once you shake the glitter off you will lay the letters out, turn them over, add a dot of hot glue and your string to the back. 
Then hang and enjoy!  I have one in my Dining Room and one on our tree.

Since I took pictures of my dining room I thought I’d share the full room decorated which is pretty much the area where the garland is but I did have fun using real greenery to fill my minnow bucket.

What do you guys think about the garland?  What crafty things have you been up to?
