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.
- Word Cut Out Sign : $3 each for Spring Sign from Target
- Gold Sharpie : $4.19 each OR Gold Spray Paint: $3.95
- Modge Pod : $3.70 each
- Brush : reuse old brush (free) or use my link to buy one!
- Glitter : $1.69 each
Total : $12.58

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.
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.
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.
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.
