Easy Glitter Letters

Posted by Laurel Beard

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun and easy DIY project for you that features the Tim Holtz Distress Glitter!!! The Distress Glitter is chunky so it is great for projects like this. I love that Distress Glitter complements the palette of other Distress products, I even paired it up with some Distress Paint for this project. This is a unique glitter that is meant to mimic the look of vintage mica.

Supplies Needed

To get started, I coated my wooden word with a heavy coating of the matte finish Mod Podge.

Then I sprinkled a ton of the Distress Glitter over the top. It will stick to the mod podge. I used the Peacock Feathers distress glitter here and worked over some copy paper to collect all the stray glitter and funneled it back into the jar. Because the Distress Glitter jar has a wide mouth, it made it pretty easy for me to funnel the glitter back in.

Next, I set the project aside to dry, probably about 30 minutes or so.

Once completely dry, I applied another layer of the matte Mod Podge over the top. This seals in the glitter so no stray glitters will be falling off. This works like a charm. I shook and shook my wooden piece and no glitters to be found!

As a finishing touch, I went around the edges of my letters with some Picket Fence Distress Paint!
