Sparkly Love

When I saw Heather's Winter Mantel, I was really jealous of her sparkly bird and wanted to add a little sparkle to my own house. Heaven knows, me being the only girl in the house, there isn't much sparkle to be had.

It was pretty easy. I traced out "love" onto a cereal box, preferably something unhealthy and sugary, such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch. You can do it freehand like me, because I was lazy and didn't want to go print something off, or trace a word you printed from your computer.

Next I applied one coat of white toll paint, my glitter was iridescent and so I wanted the background white. You can probably skip this step depending on your glitter. Than you apply a layer of Mod Podge, which you must have handy at all times during crafting...and shake on your glitter!

It as the perfect compliment to my mantel, I mean entertainment center. I'm not as fancy as Heather.

Do you have any quick and easy Valentine's projects? It's 6 days away, we have plenty of time to decorate.

We're partying with Kimba at A Soft Place to Land, The Girl Creative, Today's Creative Blog, It's So Very Cheri and Reinvented Trash to Treasure so go check out some creative ladies!
