Today's fun FALL project involves showing you how to create glittered letters to use as word art in your home decorating. This project is always so much fun to create as I have a LOVE for typography, so anything with letters or creating word art is a FAVE of mine! What I love most about this simple and easy project, is the possibilities are seriously endless. Trust me, this is seriously one EASY project! Feel free to create new word art for EVERY holiday or event as it's so inexpensive to do and takes about 20 minutes to complete. I chose to do a word art design that says 'FALL' as a new addition to my newly decorated FALL mantle I worked on a few weeks ago.

For the supplies, grab the letters you wish to spell for your word art, from any craft store in the paper mache department, a couple different paint colors (even though I only used the one), paint brushes, some glitter and some ModPodge.

Step 1:
Simply choose the paint color of your choosing  and completely paint the letters to your word art. Did I paint the backs of mine? I did but it's not necessary.

Step 2:
Start by spreading (or painting) a little bit of ModPodge over one half of the letter. Sprinkle your glitter of choice over the area of ModPodge you just applied. (FYI - it was my first time using these glitter shakers by Elmers and I have to say I am hooked and NO they didn't pay me to say that but I am so impressed with these glitter shakers and will be using them again!) ;) 

Make sure to apply ALOT of glitter to make it very glitter-y as it will look better and the excess will fall off anyway & you can use it again. Then go back and repeat the process and do the top of the letters with the ModPodge & glitter. I chose to do a multi color glitter on the top of all of the letters and the bottom with the dark red glitter.

Allow plenty of time for all of the letters to dry.
