We're still working on the kitchen and I had high hopes of reusing our old EAT sign on the wall beside the open shelving. Only when I went to unpack them, they were nowhere to be found!
I do have the vague feeling that I gave them away though?
So I decided to just create some more.
You know, since we love to EAT around here!
Giant Glitter EAT Sign
Do you want to see how we did it?
- Large E-A-T Letters (ours are from Micheal's and came primed)
- White Craft Paint (we used Decoart Americana)
- Extreme Glitter Mod Podge
- Martha Stewart Crafts Crystal Coarse Glitter
- German Glass Glitter (we used a mix of fine and chunky silver from Meyer Imports)
- 3M Command adhesive strips for posters
- foam brushes
- cookie sheet
- newspaper or brown Kraft paper
Step 1. Tape newspaper or Kraft paper over your work surface.
Step 2. Using a foam brush, paint letters with two coats of white craft paint. Let dry.
Step 3. Apply Mod Podge (or glue) to ONLY the edges of one letter. Then, over the cookie sheet, sprinkle German glass glitter mixture onto the glue-covered edges. Gently press glitter to aid in adhesion. Set aside to dry. Repeat for each letter.
Step 4. Using another foam brush, apply Extreme Glitter Mod Podge to the front surface of one letter. While Mod Podge is still wet, sprinkle Martha Stewart glitter over entire surface. Set aside to dry. Repeat for each letter.
Step 5. Once letters are dry, gently tap off excess glitter onto cookie sheet and flip letters to back sides. Affix Command Adhesive strips to letters and then affix the letters to the wall, following the package instructions. It is a good idea to measure out your placement first!
And now we have some more kitchen bling! I love how it plays off of our chandelier, but contrasts with our industrial stainless steel counters and rustic wood open shelves! The lower portion of the new breakfast bar isn't finished yet, but will likely be white. Just pretend for now, m'kay?
What do you think? Do you like these in the kitchen? Or would you make them for another room in your house – a nursery or kid's room perhaps?
P.S. This is NOT a sponsored post. We either bought all the stuff or had it kicking around! 🙂
