|One part of the monogram at my wedding reception|
It is ridiculously simple. You need paper maché letters, mod podge, glitter, and a ton of space. I bought these 23.5 inch paper maché letters from Joann's - that will be $30 for a three letter monogram, but there are smaller options that are cheaper. I used Martha Stewart fine glitter that I bought at Michael's with a 50% off coupon. Always use those coupons!
|You can see why I needed the 23.5" letters!|
In your glittering zone, you want to brush on mod podge in segments on the top of the letter and then sprinkle/dump the glitter on top. Don't put glitter over all your mod podge - you want to leave a bit of mod podge bare so that you can continue mod podging without getting your brush covered in the glitter you just dumped. Move your letter to the drying area with paper underneath.

As you can see in the picture above, the glitter does not stick perfectly the first time around. Go ahead and slap some mod podge and glitter over those bare spots. After the second round of mod podge, glitter, and brushing I did not have any more empty spots.
See! Super easy! See how I used these same exact letters in my Christmas decor!
