All That Glitters...


Love those glitter words but Im having trouble finding them. I did find Believe but it was $$. So Im making my own. I found an image on the net so I copied one.

Found some foam board...

Traced...

I used this to cut it out...

Cut it out...

I also made that Believe I saw....

Some great glitter~I took some glue and spread it across the top of the word. Added some glitter and...

Let them dry...


Attached a satin ribbon and there you go!

Believe in large silver glitter

The foam board is the size of a poster board so you can make plenty... and I did!

  2. Wow, cutting all that out loks so time consuming...was it?? I found glittery words like that at hobby lobby. Yours are gorgeous and probably less expensive than HL.

  4. I love that idea. I think I'll try that myself, you're right they are way too pricey in the stores.
    Thanks

  9. Wow, you did a great job, Susie!! I have actually seen those at a new store at our mall for just a few dollars. They were MS from Macy's originally, I think.

  11. Great idea for those of us with the foam core and glitter just waiting for a new purpose. I knew they were sitting on that shelf waiting for a great project. Thanks and keep up the creative works.

  12. I love them!!! I hate that you didn't find these at your Dollar Tree. Mine had them in silver, gold, and red. Hummm.....However, yours look even better than mine.

  13. They look great. I bet that was exhausting cutting out all of them though.

  14. I bet you're all covered in glitter now! I had to go to Bryce's soccer game a few weeks ago with glitter on me from Halloween cards and I wondered how many parents were wondering just what I might get up to at nighttime!!! ;)
    Your project turned out GREAT! How neat hun!

  15. Those are super cute! WalMart has "Joy" "Merry" "Hope" and a few others for $1.00. I snatched up a bunch to tie on presents :)

  16. Yours is very cute. I'm a little shy of the glitter right now. My 14 year old just finished a big birthday poster board for her friend's birthday tomorrow. She did her little "project" in our kitchen while I was out. It looks like a glitter jar exploded all over my counters and floor AAUUGGHH!!!

    Blessings,

  17. I love these and love that they look a little bigger than others I've seen. They look great! I have a ton for our smaller tree and got them for about $3 each years ago...and of course now they are $1. Sheesh. I'm an x-acto knife freak, don't know what I would do with out mine!

  18. Here in Oregon they had them at the Dollar tree..I bought several of them and Walmart has several versions as well. Yours are lovely! cherry

  19. Those are so pretty! I love the all I want for Christmas photo and the silver tree in the background.

  22. Those turned out great.
    You have such a creative mind.
    Thanks for lending it to us.

  23. So talented - I don't know how confident I would be with that xacto knife and all those curves! They look great!

  24. I love a little glitter!

  25. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    What I think is so cool about this is the flexibility you have to size those words and change the font to suit yourself. Now a decorating diva won't be limited to the offerings of the mass discounters, I love me some custom decorations! And I always have pieces of foam core board laying around... now to search for glitter. *smiles* Thanks for sharing this great tip! How was your show? Make lots of $$$??? I sure hope so!!!

  26. HI Susie, this is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I saw some house/cottage fronts that were glittered and decorated for Christmas cut out of wood and they were $$ but your idea would solve alot of things...really any cut out of wood could be done out of foam core board. Awesome idea! Have a blessed Thanksgiving week!

  27. Beautiful! I love that M.S. glitter, don't you? It's so pretty and sparkly...and what's not to love about that?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Pretty! I actually bought some of those at the Dollar Tree last week. I got "Noel" and "Peace". Yours look great!! Can't wait to see a big picture of that tree...hint hint. :)

  29. Cute, Susie! Great idea to try it yourself. I bought some glitter last year for my pinecones. Love the stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a great idea!! It turned out so beautifully :), and they look lovely in your tree!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You are amazing! Those turned out great! Our dollar store had some, so I stocked up. But, now I am thinking how many I could have made like that! But, I am afraid I lack the creativity and patience that you have in abundance!

    ReplyDelete
  32. You are so frugal, clever and crafty!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Adorable! I think I will make the "Noel" one in pink for my granddaughter Noel!
    Have a great week Susie!

  34. Gorgeous! I love all the glitter that is around now. I have a couple of things but now I know how to make them...Thanks for the tips.

  35. These are FANTASTIC! Thanks tons for this. I'll be linking.

  36. Susie, you did a great job, but cutting is not for me---Al does it with his scroll saw and it's really quick as he can stack 4 layers and cut them. I love your tree and wish I could just change everything at once, so sticking with the tradtional red. Good luck at Broadmore, my friend Molly used to sell Dolls there. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving. Love and Hugs, Pat

  37. Cool! Foam core is so multipurpose. I use it as a base for gingerbread houses too. Way stronger than cake board.

  38. How beautiful. I would love to try this for Christmas. I love the glitter!

  39. The words are beautiful and look so pretty on the tree. I'm going to have to find some glitter that matches my color scheme this year!

    ReplyDelete
  40. How did you trace it? I have a project where I need to trace, too, but I can't quite wrap my mind around tracing something on something that you can't see through. Does that make sense? Probably not, but I hope you can interpret! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Absolutely wonderful! The words are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great job on the glitter words - so pretty!

    I copied something of yours. No worries, I am not going into business anytime soon! Go see my blog and you'll know what I'm talking about!

  50. I was so drooling over that MS glitter at Michael's last night. But the budget won out over the glitter-lust.
