Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty easy

Materials

  • paper mache letters
  • gold acrylic paint or gold spray paint
  • white glue
  • gold glitter
  • hot glue sticks
  • silk flowers (We used daffodils, apple blossoms, ranunculus and ranunculus leaves.)

Tools

  • foam brush
  • hot glue gun
  • paper sheets to cover the work surface

Instructions

  1. Paint the letters. To color the letters, paint the top, sides and back with acrylic paint using a foam brush. Don’t dilute the paint with water as not soften the paper mache. Apply the brush strokes in the same direction to create an even texture and redo areas where the paper mache shows through the paint. Alternatively, use spray paint. Spray the paint lightly form a distance of approximately 30 centimeters or 12 inches in a slow application. You may have to apply several coats for an even finish. Let the paint completely dry.
    Tip: Cover your worksurface and it’s best to to this step outside, in a wind-protected area.
  2. Apply glitter. Brush a thin layer of white glue to the front of the letter. Generously apply glitter to the area you covered with glue and shake off any excess. Work in small sections so the glue doesn’t dry before you can sprinkle on glitter. You can repeat this process also on the sides, but we preferred the look of having two contrasting textures.
    Tip: Cover you work surface so you can catch and reuse any excess glitter.
  3. Decorate with flowers. Remove the silk flowers from the stems. Add a small dot of hot glue to the back and place them in little groupings on the letters. It’s a good idea to lay the flowers out beforehand so you know how much you need and where to put them.
