Crazy Christmas Crafter: A little Lovely

hello i heart nap time readers!! i’m so excited to be here today!
i blog over at a little lovely, all about home decor ideas, diy projects, interior design tips, yummy recipes, party planning ideas, etc. etc.–hope you’ll be able to stop by some time soon!!
my 10 gift ideas for under $10 event is actually going on right now! i’d love to have you stop by to check out the fabulous ideas shared by some lovely guest bloggers as well as enter the giveaways!
ok…now onto the super cute and super easy tutorial for today…
glitter magnet letters
supplies
letters {1.99/letter from michael’s}
magnets
scissors
foam brush
glitter
mod podge
spray adhesive
hot glue gun
hot glue
 i spelled the word ‘joy’ but you could get as creative as you would like. these are great for displaying holiday cards on your fridge, so if you get a lot of cards you could spell something like Christmas or happy holidays!!
 using your foam brush apply lots of mod podge.
{hint: when i do these again i will probably paint my letters the same color as my glitter first, however you don’t have to! i didn’t this time and they still look great!}

 dump lots of glitter on your letter and then shake off all the excess.
 i then used this spray adhesive over the glitter to try and prevent the glitter from constantly falling off.
 next i traced my letters on my magnets, cut out the magnets, and hot glued them on.
 pretty huh?! glitter is soooo in this year for the holidays–in a classy way!! i can’t wait to share all the other fun glitter ideas i have.
like i said…perfect for displaying all those lovely holiday cards you receive this year!!
custom holiday cards from HERE
these would also be great as a gift!! you could do single letters as monograms and cover them with scrapbook paper and mod podge…the possibilities are endless!!

thanks jamielyn for having me today!!

    I love this! I only decorate in black & silver so this might have to be something I create. However I have a silver fridge so I may have to do black or red letters. I have small doses of red through out my kitchen and living room. So cute! I love it!
