Did you happen to see My Glittering Patriotic Mantle yesterday? It makes me smile.
Today I am continuing on with the projects made from the glorious, glittery, glamorous supplies from American Crafts. (Can you tell my kids were watching Sesame Street—sponsored by the letter G—while I was making these?) But today I’m focusing on GOLD glitter. (Perfect, right?! G is for Gold! Ay ay ay…..I need to get out more often!)
When I got this gold package of supplies with which to play I was PUMPED. Just look at it! Yum. The glittery letter stickers caught my eye, as well as the confetti paper, the chunky glitter paper, and, naturally, the glitter tape! I have problems. As you know.
I pondered and pondered what to make with all of this glittery goodness, and I settled on something for my Little Princess. After all, what says “Princess” more than gold glitter?! I decided that a quick and easy little plaque for the door of her new nursery would be a perfect project. Let me show you how I made it. It came together VERY quickly!
First I bought a 97 cent wooden plaque from Walmart and spray painted it baby pink.
Next I used my beloved Glitter Tape to create a border. I had to cut approximate curves for the edges. There were eight different lengths used.
Next I put the lettering on the plaque. They fit perfectly. Lucky coincidence! Aren’t these letter stickers just amazing?! They are called Glitter Foam Thickers. I am incredibly smitten with them. I saw them on sale somewhere the other day and grabbed a few packages in fun colors. They stick really well and look fantastic!
Finally, I added a crown using glitter glue and chunky glitter. In retrospect, I would probably use basic glue next time so I didn’t waste precious glitter glue when it was covered up anyway, although I did have excellent control with that pointy glitter glue tip.
Isn’t it sweet? I love it. Just right for my pampered little princess . . . along with her silly, glitter obsessed Mama, of course!
