DIY // Glitter Letter Banner

Lately, I've been really drawn to all things glittery. White, black, glitter and a pop of colour is always a combination that I love and so naturally, I had to add some to our house warming decorations. My original idea was to layer the letters with my DIY Fabric Garland but it was bit hard trying to secure it to our brick wall without using nails or screws. It ended up being hung over our little bookcase, which I was still happy with.

W H A T   Y O U    N E E D :
Printed out letters - you can just do this on any computer. Use any font you want (make sure you will be able to cut it out easily) and any size you want
Glitter paper/card

Start off by cutting out your letters. I decided to leave the inner letter holes (on the R, O, B etc) but you can cut yours out if you want. Then, glue them so the ink side is down (otherwise your letters will turn out backwards) onto the back of your glitter card.

After that, all you need to do is cut the letters out. Lay them out along the string, making sure they are all evenly spaced and then attach them to the string using the cellotape.

I just taped mine to the wall - we don't have a lot of freedom at our home with putting things on the walls, but anything works! It's quite a cute little DIY that looks good by itself or would be an awesome party of a food/dessert table. You don't even have to do names, you could do song lyrics or a quote that you love. Go wild! I definitely think I'll be making more of these in the future. They are so quick to make and cheap too! My kind of project.
