What are your exciting plans for NYE??? Mine are wild and crazy this year....little man and I are renting a movie from Redbox and making pizza....oh and a bottle of Mommy Juice (as he likes to call it)! The hubs is out in the oil patch and won't be home to celebrate. So, looks like my date is a 5 year old who can probably out last any adult if given the chance.
In an ode to the glitz of New Years Eve, I have a glitter project that will surely get you giddy. A friend of mine pinned a glitter monogram, but when you click on the link it was just a pic. Soooo, I decided to look at the supplies they showed in the pic and said "Hey, I can glitter with the best of them". Screech.....I have NEVER used Mod Podge before. Did you know this stuff is like crack??? I love it! MP used with glitter sent me into a craze yesterday. I ran to Hobby Lobby, which by the way has all Christmas stuff 80%, to get my supplies. I picked up a bottle of Mod Podge, a jar of glitter, and a black wood letter (this way I wouldn't have to paint the natural wood). We rushed home in the rain and swept everything off the table so I could get to glittering! I used a sponge brush that I had in my craft closet. This is what I used to apply the Mod Podge. I also had a can of acrylic coating used from previous projects.
Let's do this...
The letter is 12" and I used a couple old juice glasses to set it on in the box to balance it while I got my glitter on. I used an old paper box lid to catch the glitter 'cause I knew it was going to get a little messy. The same reason I used the old towel underneath the box. Mama didn't raise no fool!
I brushed the Mod Podge on evenly over the front and sides of the "B" making sure I got the inside of the "B" as well. This is wear it gets fun girls!!!! Next, sprinkle the glitter all over making sure you didn't miss any spot. I found I didn't have enough Mod Podge is some areas. So, I just dabbed a little more on and the scooped some glitter from the box and covered the sticky spot.
Once I had covered the whole thing, I let it sit for a few minutes just to set. I have no idea if you need to do this, but it made me feel better.
After I left it alone a few minutes, I put a bucket on the back porch and set the wet "B" on top. This is when I sprayed it with this acrylic clear coat.
I gave it a pretty good spray and then let it sit to dry for a couple hours.
Here is the final product! I set it on the pallet shelf the hubs and I made earlier this Spring.
Anyway, Happy New Year dolls! Hope it brings you everything you want and more! Cheers!
