It’s time to deck the halls! Today is the last installment of the Dare to DIY series and I have had a ton of fun participating. Not to mention it totally lit that fire to get all my projects done! Today I’m bringing you a project that I wanted to do last year but didn’t have the space for. Now that I’ve got Miss Kelly it gave me the perfect opportunity to do it!
I had a lot of fun doing this project because I had 3 letters to work with and I knew I wanted them to all look different. The O was a wreath I purchased at Michael’s for $3.99 and I simply just added lights to it. I didn’t want to add anything more because I felt it would look too busy. The letters were all bought at Joann’s.
For the letter N, I painted it an ivory color and then used a stamp pad and makeup sponge to make it look worn. I dabbed the sponge in the pad and then smeared it all around the letter.
For the E, I simply brushed on a layer of glue and then sprinkled on some gold glitter. I mean Christmas decor really isn’t decor if there isn’t glitter involved!
Lastly, for the L (which by the way was a J that I had to cut…they were out of L’s) I used gold scrap paper that I had left over from this project.
After all that I just lined them up and BAM – Holiday decor at it’s best!
Here’s some more shots of how I decorated Miss Kelly.
