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.
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?
