Make it Sewcial... sparkle letter banner February 02 2015

hello lovelies! got a spare 15 minutes to squeeze in a spot of happy crafting? then this fun and sparkly garland is the perfect make for you!

M A T E R I A L S : 

You don't need much at all, I used some gold vinyl that I had hidden in my fabric stash but you could use gold card if you prefer, then you will need some glitter (hooray for the sparkly stuff) some glue and a piece of ribbon or string 

start by cutting out your letters, spelling out whatever makes you feel happy, I've just cut mine freehand but you could download a template too, then cover the front of each letter with some glue and you know what's coming next... oh yeah, go crazy sprinkling the sparkly stuff!

what is it about that glittery dust that makes us feel so good?... whatever it is use lots of it if you want your letters to really shine and dazzle

then glue each letter to the ribbon, I reckon if you were using string you could just easily tape each letter on the back

I made some shiny gold tassels to hang on each end of mine too, but I'm saving tassels for another speedy tutorial because you've only got 15 minutes to spare remember!

If you cant't help yourself and those shiny tassels are calling out your name then make two and thread them onto the ends of your ribbon/string to complete your garland. like so...

And thats it baby. Voila. You've just added some instant sparkliness to your life in no time at all, how easy was that? 

hope you have fun lovelies! don't forget to come back soon for that tassel'tastic tutorial I've promised you! 

until next time, big love
