- Glitters in desired colors

For this holiday decoration idea, you can choose traditional colors or get creative with an unexpected color palette. You can even do what Ivy Pink Made did and substitute a shape like a star in place of letters – have fun with it!
Start by base coating each letter with a coat of paint in a color that matches the glitters you are going to use for each letter.
Once the paint has dried, working with one letter at a time, brush a coat of Decoupage onto the letter and sprinkle the matching glitter color over the glue. Let dry and shake off excess glitter, then repeat with an additional coat of Decoupage and glitter.
To create polka dots on this sparkling holiday decoration idea, use a round sponge pouncer to pounce dots of Decoupage randomly onto each letter, then sprinkle glitter over the dots. Let dry and repeat with a second coat of glitter if needed.
Once dry, your glitter letters are ready to put on display! They’ll make a great table centerpiece for Christmas dinner, or pretty adorning a mantle as well.
