Gold Glitter Sign from Girl Loves Glam {Spring Fever Series}

Gold-Glitter-Wood-Slice-Spring-Sign-Tutorial

I am so excited to be partying with all of you Crafting Chicks readers today! I am McKenzie, a lifestyle/beauty blogger from Girl Loves Glam. I can’t even tell you how excited I am that it is finally Spring! Even though the weather in Idaho isn’t as happy and springlike as I would hope, I still enjoy adding some springtime charm to my house to make it feel bright and fresh. I knew I wanted to create a sign that also had some sort of natural element in it. I absolutely love wood grain so I chose to create a super cute Spring sign on a wood slice. Of course I needed to add some gold glam to it too! I am kind of obsessed with how it turned out. It is modern and fun! It was so easy to make too.

I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real, and I am so excited to be hanging here with some of the coolest chicks around! I am totally obsessed with silver and white this year, and have created my version of a Winter Wonderland in my breakfast nook. Today I want to share a simple and inexpensive Deer Silhouette Christmas Decor project… I started with a wooden deer silhouette of a deer head that I picked up for $1 at Michaels, a roll of Merry Christmas wrapping paper, some glitter, glue, ribbon and jingle bells. I started by painting a very thin coat of decoupage on the front of the deer silhouette, then placing it face down on the back side of the wrapping paper. Once the decoupage was dry, [Read More...]
