DIY: Love Letters

Hello and happy Monday!  I haven't done a DIY project in a long time so I am excited to be sharing this one with you today!  I pinned this awesome LOVE sign from Justine Smith and decided to try it myself:

The image above uses coins for the sparkle factor.  Originally I was going to use sequins to achieve the same look.  I found my letters at a local craft store and gave them a silver painted base coat.

I started arranging the silver sequins on top of the letters, but I was not loving the look.  It was hard to cover the squarish letters with round sequins and I didn't like the look of overlapping sequins.  So instead of sequins, I went to my old standby: glitter.  I brushed on some glue and covered the letters with a light dusting of silver glitter.  Even though the end result is different from my original inspiration, I still love the finished product!

These letters would be a great addition to any wedding decor.  You can spell out whatever you want and you could use them as a ceremony backdrop, photobooth backdrop, or reception decor.  The sky is the limit!
