Glitter Love Letters

I loved the NOEL sign that I did for Christmas – so much that I thought it would be fun to make a LOVE one for Valentine’s Day -
After all – red and glitter just scream LOVE!

Glitter Love Letters

First, I bought these letters from Hobby Lobby.

Then I hot glued them together where they touched.

Next, I used really short staples and my staple gun and stapled the letters together where they touch so I was nice and sturdy.

Then I sprayed it with a good coat of red paint. I just used what I had  in my paint supplies so you can use whatever red color you have too – and if you don’t have red spray paint – just bust out your toll paint and brush and brush on a coat – you just need a good red coat so no brown shows through the glitter -

Then I used Glitter Blast that  I found at Michaels -
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this stuff!

Let the glitter dry and put it up for display!

Love it. I did the same thing, except I painted mine with chalkboard paint and then wrote all over it with chalk markers. I started to go with red but figured this way it was a little less Valentinesy and so I could keep it out year round and write things on it for our anniversary, or Bible scripture about God's love. :-)
