diy #8: i love glitter

Yay it’s DIY day! This is one of my favourite days of the week here on Bijoux Bride, and today it’s extra fabulous as I get to share my love of all things glittery with you!

A few weeks ago I created this DIY for my friends over on The TWIPS blog, but I want to add a bit of sparkle to your day over here on Bijoux Bride too!

There is nothing I love more than sparkles, and with Christmas on it’s way it’s a great excuse to crack open the glitter and make something to add a little sparkle to your home or wedding decor.

These DIY glitter letters are really simple, but effective. You could use them to decorate the walls or tables of your venue, with a simple word like ‘LOVE’ or just your initials. You could even make giant floor-standing versions to create an altar backdrop or focal point in your reception venue. After the big day, use them at home to brighten up your living space!

You will need:

1 x sheet foam board / foam core

1 x pack fine glitter in a colour of your choice

Spray mount or photo mount

Clear spray varnish

1 x sharp craft or xacto knife

1 x steel ruler

Template in a font of your choice

{1} First of all choose your word, and select a font you like. Print off a template making sure the letters are the correct size for your finished project (I used font Georgia and printed each letter off on a full sheet of A4)

{2} Carefully cut round each template on the foam board – use a little bit of masking tape to stick down the template while you’re cutting to prevent it moving

{3} Coat each letter in spray mount, ensuring you get an even coverage with no lumps, and don’t miss the sides!

{4} Liberally coat each letter with glitter, and leave to dry

{5} Pour off the leftover glitter

{6} Finish with a generous coat of clear varnish to protect and seal in the glitter

Sparkly love xx

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
