January 30, 2010


I have been enjoying Silver Sundays so much....thank you to all who take time to visit my blog and leave such sweet comments.  A special thank you to Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal for hosting this fun day.

Today I am showing you an easy little craft project I did with some wood letters I found at the craft store.
I drilled holes through the tops of these letters so they could be strung with ribbon to create a word garland.
I painted the letters with a base coat of black then painted over the black with a clear drying glue and sprinkled away with SILVER glitter (of course).
I also tried some in white using white glitter which turned out really nice as well.
A very easy junk dreams project!!!!
You can find links to all the Silver Sunday participants on Beth's blog....

Happy dreaming my blogging friends.

This turned out great. I've seen these with cardboard letters, but not wood. Much sturdier.
