DIY Embellished Holiday Letters


DIY Embellished  Holiday Letters
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy Holiday Letters

Cheap and Easy (Crafts)

I bought these wonderful FOOT TALL paper mache letters on super sale recently at Consumer Crafts.  It took me a while to decide how I wanted to embellish them and then it hit me.  I began with silver spray paint and a touch of gold to give them the effect of mercury glass.  Then I added some layers of color with stamps (I used a paint pouncer to evenly apply paint to my stamp) and then edged them with multiple sizes of faux rhinestones.  These are super easy to make and the cost is minimal for maximum impact, now that's my kind of cheap and easy craft!  iLoveToCreate has an array of fabulous products that took these letters from drab to fab in a flash.

  1. I bought some of these exact same letters! J-O-Y! I want to make them look like faux zinc. I just ran out of steam. But that week after Christmas those letters might call to me again. I like the idea of the stamped image. I hadn't thought of doing that! Thanks for the sparkly inspiration. Enjoy the day. Erin

  2. Aren't they fabulous! I think JOY is a year round sentiment! Can't wait to see what you do with them, Miss Erin!

    Cheers,
