As you’ll come to see the theme of our wedding was gold sparkles and blush pink :). I can’t wait to share our wedding pictures for you all to see as soon as I get them! I of course was very Pinterest inspired during the wedding planning process. It was such a great tool to use to figure out my color palates and overall look/feel. It did inspire me to do quite a few DIY projects for the wedding and to nicely ask my husband to do some as well ;). Good thing he likes projects!
One of my very early DIY projects was to make a sparkly gold LOVE sign. The place we got married (The Sanctuary Golf Course) had an alcove above the stunning fireplace that I felt would be perfect for the letters to hang.
Here’s the step by step process of how I made the letters. I tried a few methods to ensure the sparkles weren’t shedding everywhere and finally found the right way. I’m excited to make more of these in the future for holiday signs, etc.
– Gold spray paint
– Mod Podge glue
– Gold glitter
– Mod Podge clear acrylic sealer
– Wooden Letters (I found mine at Michaels)
Step 1: Spray paint the letter gold and let dry (please excuse my lovely cardboard work space 🙂 )
Step 2: Paint the letter with the glue and immediately sprinkle the glitter on top until the letter is fully covered.
Step 3: Shake all the glitter off the letter and let dry. Next, spray the letters with 3 coats of the acrylic sealer (letting dry in between each). All done!
Here was the final look of the sign. We had to nail the letters to a board to hang from for the wedding venue. I don’t have a photo yet after it was all fully set up but you get the idea :). I’m envisioning they will lean on a shelf in our home going forward or maybe the letters will get hung on a wall. LOVE!
