DIY: Create Your Own Gold Glitter Word Cut Out Decoration

Word Cut Out Glitter Decoration DIY

Spring Gold Glitter Decoration!

Spring is almost here so I decided to get a little decorative! This is a very simple diy project and only requires one night to put together. My friends and I couldn’t stop looking at it because it was so sparkly with gold glitter! This Spring sign is from Target. However since it does not appear on Target’s website I have linked a similar cut out word that is just as cute and says Love. You will need the following supplies.

Spring Word Cut Out Decoration

Step One

The first step is to color or prime the entire sign with gold sharpie. I did this because I did not want to be able to see the green underneath the glitter. The second time around I would definitely use gold spray paint instead because it was hard to get in between the nooks and holes with the gold sharpie where the gold spray paint would easily cover.

Step Two

After priming the entire sign with gold sharpie or gold spray paint, you will want to use Mod Podge as an adhesive for the glitter. I find that Mod Podge helps most of the glitter stick to the sign and precents a lot of it falling off. I used an old makeup brush to put the Mod Podge on the sign.

Step Three

Before I started to gold glitter my sign, I put the sign on a big plate so that I would not get it all over my counter tops and it would be easier to clean up afterwards. This really helped contain the gold glitter to my work area. Next, I poured gold glitter over the entire front and let it dry for about twenty minutes. Then I repeated step two with the other three sides allowing it to dry in between glittering each side. TIP: You will want to shake off the excess and reapply Mod Podge in areas that are not fully covered in gold glitter.

 Finished!

This project cost around $12.58. This is an awesome deal compared to similar signs at Francesca’s that are not as sparkly and are sold for nearly $16 full price as shown here.

Creative and Clean Space for the Work at Home Minimalist

It’s so important to have a clean space where you can go to when you need to be creative and work at home ! This sleek minimalist and white space design gives me inspiration for the type of image I want to portray in my blog. I immediately knew it was the desk for me because I’m still a young professional moving around a lot and I don’t want to worry about moving heavy furniture later on.

West Elm Hello Word ObjectMoving and Assembly

I have to say I’m in love with my blogging desk set up! This is perfect for small apartments or if you like the minimalist décor style. I live on the 4th floor of my apartment building so it’s nice to not have to worry about moving large furniture up and down the stairs. My main theme is white and gold but I have added a green plant for a little extra color. This leaning desk comes with hardware to attach it to the wall so you can feel safe having your laptop and decorations on top of it. This leaning desk came in pieces but was very easy to put together with their picture instructions. It was very helpful that The Container Store included all the hardware and screwdrivers in the box that you needed to assemble the product.

It’s so important to have a clean space where you can go to when you need to be creative and work at home!

How to Make a Luxurious, Elegant, and Beautiful Bed

How to Make a Luxurious Elegant Bed

How to Make a Luxurious, Elegant, and Beautiful Bed

Today I would like to talk about making an elegant bed! I have never made my bed everyday until this bed set! I fall in love with it more and more everyday. Its so comfy, soft and gorgeous.
Note: This post contains affiliate links. This means that I may receive a small commission (at no cost to you) if you subscribe or purchase something through the links provided. You will never see me post a link to a product or service that I don’t use myself or truly love!

Step One

Choose whether or not to have a valence, its just a added little style or an easy way to cover up your bottom bedframe.After you decide to add a valence or not the next step is to put the fitted sheet on the bed. To minimize wrinkles I threw all of my sheets in the dryer. I bought all of my furniture at Beltfort and have linked (affiliate links are in this post) it as well.

Step Two

Put the flat sheet on. With this bed set as you can see in the below image it has three design lines. I made sure to put that side facing down so when I folded it over you can see the detail.

Step Three

Add a blanket to your bed. The one I bought feels like velvet.

Step Four

I added two Euro Sham style pillows. One pillow case matches my blanket, and the other pillow case matches my comforter that you will see in the next steps.

Step Five

I added two standard pillows which is what I choose to sleep on at night if I decide to sleep with a pillow ( i’m weird and don’t use one sometimes 🙂 haha )

Step Six

Next I added two standard shaped pillows in the fabric of my blanket and of my duvet cover.

Step Seven

 I bought a comforter to go inside of my Duvet cover. It just slips in and then I buttoned the side up. I really love having the buttons on the side versus the sides folding in or zippering up because if a button falls off I can just sew it back on compared to a broken zipper or falling out comforter when it is being kept in by folded material

Step Eight

Lastly I added three decorative pillows that matched my set. I also plan on buying a wooden tray with 3 decorations to lay on top of my bed for added ambiance.
