Instructions for Making Glitter Letters

spray paint

  • Start by spray painting the letters with metallic gold spray paint.  My husband always loves the new lawn decor.  {{snicker}}

mod podge

  • Brush the letter with mod podge.  Tip:  I covered an entire side with mod podge first and then added the glitter.  After that side dries you can turn it over and do the remaining sides.


  • Generously sprinkle letters with glitter.  Tip: I always do it over a piece of paper so that I can reuse the excess glitter.
  • Once the glitter has dried spray it with sealer so that you won’t have a glitter mess in your home.  {{wink}}
  • Voila, easy peasy glitter letters.

And that’s how I made easy peasy DIY Glitter XO Letters that’s perfect to make with the kids and will be a perfect accent for your Valentine’s Day celebration. Happy Crafting!
