Glitter X and O’s

glitter X and O's 018

Last summer I came upon a little letter collection at a garage sale. They’d been given a not-so-great crackle paint job, but I saw their potential! Nothing a little glitter couldn’t fix -I heart glitter.

I gave them a quick coat of spray paint to cover the still black backs, and the uneven crackle. I was originally going to do the two X’s pink, and the O white. I couldn’t find a great shade of pink glitter at my favourite store (the dollar store). I did contemplate a trip to Michaels, but the closest one -well isn’t close, and I thought the fancy glitter would be expensive. But, then I found a little gradated Martha package at Walmart for 5 something! Perfect!

I glittered one in each colour and made these little cuties the star of my Valentine’s day mantel.

Here they are with my felted sweater heart garland from last week.

So sweet, so glittery. Does it get any better than upcyling with glitter? Life is a party, at least around here where we’re getting ready for our Valentine’s day tea party!
