Last year I bought these paper mache letters and spray painted them for my Valentine's Mantel.
I liked them at the time but this year the colors and finish didn't work for our decor, so I decided to give them a little makeover.
Originally I was going to Mod Podge some scrapbook paper on them but then I saw tons of glitter accents on Pinterest for mantels using letters and other objects and I fell in love. So I decided to Mod Podge some glitter on them.
First I covered them with a basic red acrylic paint to take away the intense gloss they had from last year.
Then I added a layer of Mod Podge.
I used fine red glitter to sprinkle heavily over the Mod Podge.
Let it sit for a minute.
Then shake off the access glitter.
And ta-da they are done!
I am so much happier now that some sparkle has been added to my mantel and in years to come they should match all my decor!
Now that my Valentine's Decor has a new addition I think I am done with decorating for Valentine's Day.. YAY! Now to focus on our Valentine's Day plans...
