Good Morning Jaderbugs!
Is it really Friday? Wait… It is Friday!

I posted a picture of this craft on Instagram last week and everyone was excited when they saw the GOLD glitter. I get excited when I see GOLD glitter.

 I also get excited when I see gold glitter with a hint of light near it, don’t you? Today’s craft is super fun and will add that pop of holiday decor to any space. This is great for any occasion actually. What I love the most is you can spell out whatever you want! 

You can MONOGRAM it!
Let’s get started.

Seriously, how cute is this? I wish I could show you how pretty they look when they are lit.


*Tall glass candles
( I got these from Walgreens. 2 for $5)
*Mod Podge
*Wooden Letter
(I got these at Hobby Lobby. They were around 50 cents)
*Gold glitter
*Baker’s Twine 

The first thing you will do is coat the letter with Mod Podge. I actually put one layer of glitter and now I am applying the second layer.

After you coat your letter with Mod Podge, sprinkle with your glitter.

Cut a piece of baker’s twine and gently wrap it around the letter (or number).

Once you wrap your twine around your letter then you will wrap your twine around the candle. BTW, I bought my candles without any sticker or wrap on it. It came clean and crisp just like the picture.

VOILA! Peace on my window seal, at night, while I eat Nutella on toast, and drink a Dr. Pepper, while watching RHWOA, then taking my chewy vitamins because I can’t swallow pills…. YEP.

P to the E to the ACE from my crib to yours.

Don’t forget to GLITTERBOMB something!

First thing I am wondering is if everyone survived “Cyber Monday”. I am pretty much done with Christmas shopping,well except for all of the “things” I will find from now until then. Which I hate to say could totally start to pile up. I have this thing where we always buy one nice gift but other little ones also. There is something about watching a person open a present. Do you experience that too?

The other day when I went “BLACK” friday shopping I instagramed this picture. The funniest part is when It went on facebook someone responded to it and said they knew where I was at. So, I was at Joann’s.  They had some major deals going on and they still do so click on the link I just put to shop online. I accidentally ran across these HUGE letters and I though “Wow I could totally decorate with these for Christmas and also keep them up all year after Christmas”. I bought them. The large one is normally $9.99 but was on sale for around $4.00. The small one normally is around $5.00 but for it for $2 something. I am telling you it’s a great deal. It’s always fun to think out side of the box when it comes to Christmas decor. With all of the decorations out all over it get’s overwhelming somethings and you can’t think. That’s why I am here!

Let’s get started.


*Cardboard Letters
*Mod Podge
*Craft Brush
*Krylon Sealer 

You can purchase all of the item’s by clicking on the links under ingredients.

These are all of the things you will need to make your home all warm and cozy. Did I mention that you can totally buy letter’s of someone’s name, do this to them and give them as a Christmas present. Everyone loves something that has their name, initials or favorite sayings on them. At least in Louisiana they do!


 The first thing you will do is coat the top of your letter with Mod Podge. Keep in mind this dries fairy quick so you don’t want to coat the entire letter then glitter. I do a little piece glitter, shake off glitter then move to a spot away from the one I just did. So it’s a little bit of going all over the letter but eventually it all will be coated with awesome glitter!

This is about the size I do at one time. I used the “original” glitter. I don’t know if there is an original but you know what I mean. Not all that new FINE, THIN glitter but the large gold flakes. These always bring me back to being a kid so I thought hey, let’s go there for Christmas. What I love most about this project is you can get so creative with it. You don’t have to use gold. You can use whatever color your home decor is or if you are giving it as a gift you can make it that person’s favorite color.

 When you are completely done you can coat the entire thing with Mod Podge or spray with this sealer. I used the sealer but they both work the same. You can get this from any craft store. 

 Make sure you spray this OUTSIDE!

 This my Jaderbugs is what you will get.  A mantle full of awesomeness. If you didn’t see my tutorial on how I made these tinsel trees you can click HERE to see them. Yesterday I posted how to make a garland with Cotton Balls and it exploded on Pinterest. Click HERE to see how I did it!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, make sure to come back tomorrow to see some easy DIY Christmas decor.

Don’t forget to make it a DIY kinda day,
