Glitter Santa Clause Initials
This DIY is so much fun if you like glitter as much as I do. If you watched the live on the fuzzy trees I made then you know I was looking for a third tree to go in-between the other two. Because I could not find a third tree in the size I wanted I decided to make these glittery initials to go in-between. I actually like this more than if I would have found a third tree! This project is so easy to make, let me show you how!
- Cardboard letters ( Initials- S&C for Santa Clause or S&N for Saint Nick)
- paint brushes
- gold paint ( I used Red Barrel metallic gold color)
- Mod Podge
- gold glitter
- wax paper
Step 1: The first step is to paint the initials gold. I chose gold but you can use any color you’d like, just make sure the color of the paint and the glitter match.
Step 2: I didn’t get a very good picture of these next few steps because I didn’t want to get glitter all over my camera. But this is very easy to explain. I laid the painted initials on a piece of wax paper and began to paint them with Mod Podge. I worked in sections and as soon as I painted one section I coated it in glitter. I did this all over the front and sides of the letters. And I found it easier to start on the sides and finish on the front. When you are all finished you can fold the wax paper in half and pour the rest of the glitter back into your glitter container.
Step 3: Once the glitter has dried, paint over all the glittered parts of the initials with Mod Podge. You may want to add 2-3 coats. This seals the glitter and keeps it from making a mess when you decorate.
