Gold Glitter Paper Mache Letter Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

As mentioned here, I'm throwing a baby shower this coming Saturday for my good friend. I've already shown you how to make the super trendy tassel banners, so today I'm going to show you how to make gold glitter paper mache letters. They are such statement pieces, and really help your party decor to pop. They are super easy to make so there's no reason you can't try them for your next party!

 Materials
Paper Mache Letters (I get mine from Hobby Lobby)
Newspapers
 Using the paint brush apply the mod podge to one side of the letter.
 Immediately shake the glitter on top of the mod podge.
 Gently shake off the excess glitter. Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes before doing another side.
I've decided gold glitter just makes the world better! I may or may not have gone a little glitter crazy after this project...

XOXO

  2. No offense, but why would someone need a tutorial for this? BTW you can save money and use school glue for this...

  4. I know this is a bit of an older post, but are there no issues with the glitter falling off? Do you need to seal it? Thanks!

    Also,I thought this was a great tutorial :)

    1. Some of the glitter does fall off. I would usually put over the top another layer of the modge podge and that helped with keeping the glitter one. Unfortunately glitter is just super messy!
